Module Housing constructing its first, adaptable energy efficient home for a customer and releasing a new line of home designs.
Module Home #1
A single-story, 880 square foot, one bedroom one bathroom unit, designed using passive house principles and built in Tektoniks factory in southwestern New Hampshire. Module is also releasing a new line of home designs, which are priced from $150,000 - $300,000 excluding land and site costs. The company has received approval to build a second home in Pittsburgh’s east end, which it is seeking to pre-sell this fall.
Module, a Pittsburgh based design and build company, has a business model that offers energy efficient homes that are also long-term housing solutions. This means that each home needs to be durable, adaptable, and resilient to housing market volatility.
Materials and methods associated with site construction can vary and are subject to many uncontrollable factors. Unreliable labor, materials, and schedules add significant risk to Module’s lifecycle housing solution.
By using Tektoniks panelized components, Module achieves quality control and financial predictability on their projects. And because the components are part of a panelized system, they quickly adapt to Module’s design platforms. Further, Tektoniks panels are durable and can be expanded upon to accommodate additions.
