Modular Homes Are Being Delivered and Assembled in Brewerytown Wednesday, January 11, 2012
It's been awhile since our last update on North 28, the large development at 1238 N 28th St. from MM Partners. Today, we had the unique pleasure of witnessing a sight not often seen- the assembly of several modular components to form the structure that will soon become three one-bedroom and twelve two-bedroom units. When completed, this project will include almost 15K sqft of living space.
Take a look at this photo gallery of the modular build currently in progress.
We've spoken to a few developers to find out why more don't use modular building methods, which are apparently more cost effective and quite impressive to see in person. The most common responses that we've heard have been a simple lack of experience with building modular and a general sense from some that "buyers just don't like it."
Anyone out there live in a modular home and wish they didn't? Anyone out there live in a modular home and can't tell the difference? Is the stigma for modular deserved, or do these developers need to start living in the now?
