This project came to us in 2008 just as the recession was beginning to really affect commercial construction, and our company. The size of this project was outside what we would normally accept from the residential market, but since we had a successful working relationship with the architect and the desire to keep production moving in our facility we made the decision to move forward.
6 Modules. 1 House.
The modular portion of the house was comprised of 6 modules and a variety of modular panels. The modules were transported to the site up a very tight and curvy road, and then craned into place amongst existing trees and several site built steel structures which made up a living room, 2nd story interior walkway and an exterior staircase.
Many of the materials and products used in the design were outside the standard products used in our commercial work. This presented challenges to our team as well as an opportunity to learn new things. These are some of the positive things that come out of an economic slow-down – time to learn and innovate.
Even though this project was larger in scale than the other residential work we had previously done, the architect’s experience in designing for modular construction and our history of working together allowed for a smooth and successful project.
This was a very unique project for us, but one we are very proud to have been a part of. This house proves that great design, great planning and great workmanship will produce an amazing project!
An ongoing effort to provide the best classroom education environment for our community.

Concrete Block Building
This is not your typical modular classroom. This is a whole school campus with modular construction.
