Modular Home Builders Association’s August Modular Home of the Month is a Coastal Custom

August HOM

MONMOUTH BEACH, N.J. – The Modular Home Builders Association’s (MHBA) August 2017 Modular Home of the Month is a custom coastal home bringing style and charm to a relaxing seaside town in New Jersey.

Monmouth Beach, NJ was one of the communities hard hit by Superstorm Sandy in the fall of 2012.  Homeowners Tom & Laura had to make the unexpected decision to remediate the damages caused by the overwhelming storm.  The couple came to RBA Homes to discuss building a new modular home on their property.

RBA Homes constructed this expanded ranch in collaboration with Apex Homes, adapting their “Chestnut” ranch model to meet the couple’s design criteria, as well as “raising” the roof to allow for the construction of 2 additional bedrooms, 1 full bath, a balcony overlooking the ocean, and a spacious loft.

Elegance and sophistication combine in this beautiful 5-bedroom, 3-full-bath home nestled on a large three-quarter acre lot in the desirable New Jersey coastal community. The home features an open floor plan design perfect for entertaining with white painted maple cabinets adorn the well-appointed kitchen with stylish granite countertops. A matching elegant built-in bar lives off the dining area leading into a relaxing family room with a gas fireplace. Throughout the home gleaming hardwood floors are paired with 9-foot-high ceilings. The second floor is home to a rec/game room, along with a spacious laundry room with slop sink. The exterior of the home is as elegant as the inside with a two-car garage with storage area, convenient outdoor shower, welcoming front porch, two rear decks off the first floor living area and sliding glass doors leading to a second-floor rear balcony with picturesque views of the backyard.

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.
