Touring the Master Bedroom in the Modular Home

Project: Modular Mountain Retreat, Episode 6, Part 2

The assembly of the main sections of the modular home is nearly complete, and work is underway on the building's exterior.

The roof shingles are being installed and Brian Eberle (from Enviroshake) is on hand to explain the benefits of the engineered shingle product that's been chose for use.

At the back of the house, Mark Murphy (from Owens-Corning) is directing a crew that's applying a Cultured Stone veneer to the foundation of the home.

Inside, Bob looks at the distinct features of the modular construction process, including the marriage walls and joints.
Part 1: Cultured Stone and Façade
Part 2: Touring the Master Bedroom in the Modular Home
Bob and contractor Michael Shiels visit the master bedroom of the modular home. The space extends sixteen by forty feet. French doors exit to the balcony overlooking the side yard and the forest beyond. In the master bath, the factory-installed Kohler his-and-hers vanities and tub have arrived unscathed from their over the road journey.
Beautifully sited on wooded acreage with breathtaking views of some of the most beautiful countryside in New England, this Arts and Crafts style bungalow certainly doesn't look factory-built. You'd never know it was a modular home unless Bob took you to the Pennsylvania factory where it was built, almost from start to finish.

The house goes down the assembly line from framing, through wiring and plumbing, all the way to the installation of flooring and priming for paint.

The house is trucked to its pre-fabricated foundations on the lot, and start all the finishing touches that will prove that a modular house doesn't have to be a cookie-cutter affair.
