The August 2016 Modular Home Builder’s Association’s Modular Home of the Month Goes Topsy-Turvy



CHATHAM, MASS. – The August 2016 Modular Home of the Month from the Modular Home Builders Association (MHBA) is The Chatham.

Old Harbor Homes created a home that embodies its beautiful Cape Cod location.  Considered an upside-down house, the custom-built design highlights the amazing coastal views with living areas on the second floor. The first floor features an extra living room and 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms while the second floor includes the kitchen, dining room, and an additional bedroom and bathroom. With more than 4,200 square feet of space, the home boasts an open floor plan with antique chestnut floors which were slowly acclimated to the local weather.

Natural light breathes life into the open-air kitchen that features cathedral ceilings, enhanced further with the use of bead board. The living room has a more intimate feel with a coffered ceiling that adds dimension and character to the room’s design. The living room opens up onto a red cedar deck that offers picturesque views. The deck columns resemble lighthouses inspired by the local lighthouse built in 1808 that still stands today.

The Modular Home of the Month showcase is an opportunity for MHBA member companies to display their projects to architects, engineers, contractors, developers, owners, students, and more. MHBA selects one home each month to be featured on social media and our website.
