A modular home, also called a prefab or kit home, is a prefabricated building that is constructed in sections. After the building process is complete, the home is delivered to the final destination and assembled on site using cranes and other heavy machinery. Modular homes and manufactured homes are often thought to be one and the same, but that is not the case. A manufactured home is what used to be called a mobile home or trailer house. A single-wide manufactured home is delivered in one piece while a double-wide may be delivered in two pieces. A modular home is more like a conventional house, in size, shape, and quality. It is delivered to its destination in multiple modules and is then put together.

Styles of Albany Manufactured Homes
Prefabricated houses are completely customizable in terms of style, type, layout, size, and design. Let us know what you are looking for and we will build your dream home. Below are some of the housing styles modular home builders offer.
Ranch modular homes are wildly popular, representing more than 60% of all modular houses on the market. They are rectangular in shape and are usually wider than they are deep. Ranch homes are only one story tall and are known for being modest with minimal frill. Most designs are a tasteful combination of American Western and Modernist home styles. They are often purchased by people not wanting to have to go upstairs regularly. They also fit well on wide stretches of land and can easily nestle into a lakeside spot or mountain getaway.
Modular chalet homes are ideal for snowy locations, like Albany and the surrounding areas. They are quite stylish merging the Swiss Alpine look with a rustic twist. We’ve built quite a few chalets in the Adirondacks, near Mount Snow, and just outside of Albany. Chalets are easily recognizable because they have pointed, high roofs that are designed not only for a mountainous air but also to keep snow from accumulating and causing problems. Another great feature of Chalet-style prefabricated house design is large windows to let in ample light and allow for gorgeous panoramic views. Whether you are looking for a vacation getaway or a main residence, chalets are often built in the woods, the mountains, by a lake, or even in small town.
Colonial modular homes are often appreciated for their 16th through 19th century appeal. With steep, double-hipped roofs, rich ornamental interiors, and central chimneys, colonial home construction is popular in the Southeast. We often build colonial style houses on farms and ranches. Colonial designs used to have a strict nine-window grid, and the front door was located across the façade. The standards are looser now, especially in modular home versions. The southern hospitality comes shining through regardless of the small changes.
One of the styles our builders construct quite often is Craftsman modular homes. Craftsman house designs have open floor plans, providing ample living space while maintaining a cozy feel. They have low pitched roofs, front porches, exposed wood, columns, and decorative stone. This type of house is very flexible so you can easily use it for a vacation home, farmhouse, or ranch house. Plant it practically anywhere you choose.
Two-Story modular homes are constructed with two levels, not counting the basement. They are available in several styles, including Colonial and Traditional. Two-Story houses are great for accommodating a large family and for providing distinct floors that can separate living and sleeping quarters or give parents a space away from children. Most prefabricated homes for families are constructed in this fashion.
Log Homes and Cabins
We build modular log homes that blend modern architecture and construction with traditional wood design accents. Choose from numerous hardwoods, such as pine, cedar, cypress, or fir and have your log cabin assembled with natural or artificial wood siding to achieve whatever appearance you want. A cabin or a log home are best used in wooded areas, by water, or on large plots of land.
Looking to design a house that reflects the architecture of today? Ask our professionals about a Contemporary modular home. This building style comes with an ever-growing list of eco-friendly options and natural, sustainable construction materials. For the house exterior, expect clean lines and an asymmetrical façade with large windows and a mixture of materials. On the inside, choose from one or two stories and experience an open floor plan with a highly flexible layout that can be adjusted easily.
Modular farmhouses are another home style with open floor space and large bay windows to enjoy the scenery outside. Farmhouse designs are typically two stories with a wrap-around front porch, multiple evenly spaced gables, and a rural look. The interior of the home is spacious and places a heavy emphasis on the kitchen and dining area where people come together to eat. This type of house plan is often used on farms or large acreage as the name suggests.
Modular vacation homes are designed for individuals who want a 2-5 bedrooms with plenty of space, lots of light, and tons of customizable options. Sizing typically ranges between 800 and 3,000 square feet. They can be put together anywhere you would like, in a city, town, ocean or lakeside, in the mountains, or wherever else you vacation.
Multi-Family and Duplexes
Multi-family modular homes accommodate more than one family. The most popular type is a two-family home, also known as a duplex. With the present economy, many people are opting to live in a duplex setting with a friend or family member. Some love the concept of housing an aging parent next to them and others even set their young-adult children up next door. Most manufactured duplexes come with 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. Triplex home designs are also on the rise. Some customers even take singles and place them side-by-side. The Albany area is excellent for multi-family prefab houses.
