Description

Take a look into the future of home building with author Sheri Koones as she explores America's fastest-growing method of home construction. In Modular Mansions, Koones profiles twenty-one modular houses in varied styles, ranging from 1,344 to 12,700 square feet, including an Arts & Crafts House on Lake Orange, a canyon view log home, a colonial on the lake, Victorian nostalgia in New England, and more, in locations across the country. Modular homes have become significantly more sophisticated, with beautiful, spacious designs that rival the size and quality of many custom stick-built homes. Modular Mansions showcases this amazing assortment of dream homes that highlight the benefits and details of modular craftsmanship. With the dwindling population of craftsmen, the sophistication of available equipment, and the added desire of so many for faster construction solutions, modular construction is bound to be the future's primary method of homebuilding. Sheri Koones began writing about home construction after doing extensive research to complete the renovation of her own home several years ago. She found a niche in empowering other homeowners to become more knowledgeable about completing their own construction projects. Sheri's other books include From Sand Castles to Dream Houses and House About It. She is also a columnist and freelance writer, and resides in Connecticut.show more
