Modular houses - projects that are available on the market

Modular houses are made of ready-made elements - that is modules - made of prefabricated elements. They are brought to the construction site and assembled there. Thanks to this, the erection of the building is much faster than when using classic construction methods, it also does not generate harmful noise or waste that needs to be disposed of. Investment costs also often turn out to be lower than with traditional masonry. Importantly, a modular house is very mobile - it is not connected with the ground by foundations, so it can be moved to another place at any time. These and many other advantages make this type of construction gaining popularity. There are more and more modular house designs available on the market, thanks to which customers can adapt them to their own needs, and modular construction itself becomes diverse and stylistically interesting.


What are the most popular modular house designs?

According to the regulations introduced in 2015, a building with a building area of ​​up to 35 m2 does not require a building permit (a notification is enough), provided that it is adapted to the local spatial development plan and its impact zone does not extend beyond the plot on which it was designed. More and more facilities of this type - both residential houses and office buildings - has a modular structure, but it must be remembered that the modules can also be used to create a larger year-round.

All-season houses designed to size are very popular. They can include:

1) CUBEEKO MINI – ba one-story building consisting of one module with a building area of ​​17.4 m2 and a usable area of ​​13.9 m2. It is ideal for a seasonal house or an office. Thanks to the appropriately used wall technology, it will work well in both summer and winter seasons. It offers considerable possibilities of arrangement and extension with further modules.

2) CUBEEKO MEDIUM "L" / "Z" - a one-story or two-story building, consisting of two modules of CUBEEKO MINI size, joined together in the shape of the letters L or Z. The built-up area is 34.8 m2 (so the house can be built on application), and the usable area is 28 m2.

3) CUBEEKO MAXI "C" – building in wone-story or two-story. Its built-up area exceeds 35 m2, so a building permit is required. A one-story building consisting of three modules joined together in the shape of the letter "C". The built-up area is 52.2 m2 and the usable area is 42 m span>2. This variety can have many uses, for example, it will be perfect as a year-round family home.

4) CUBEEKO OSADA – housing estate version of modular houses, was created for potential investors who plan to build houses for rent. The building area of ​​a single module is 17.4 m2, and the usable area is 13.9 m2. In the case of a double module, the built-up area is 34.8 m2, and the usable area is 28 m2. The construction of the module is skeletal and wooden. The body of the house has been thermally insulated with mineral wool, thanks to which the features of a year-round building are met.

5) DWUSPAD - single-story or mezzanine version of a modular house, commonly referred to as the "Modern Barn" ". The building area is 35 m2, so the house can be built without a permit. The usable area of ​​the version without the mezzanine is 28.73 m2, and with the mezzanine as much as 40.92 m2. The advantage of this project is the possibility of using the attic for a mezzanine, which gives more possibilities, such as an additional bedroom in the house. The stairs to the mezzanine can be fixed or foldable. The construction of the module is made of wood and frame, and the body of the building is thermally insulated with mineral wool, thanks to which DWUSPAD meets the features of a year-round house.

Regardless of which model we choose, it is definitely worth ordering a project with a cost estimate.


What are the trends in designing modular houses on the market?

Currently, an increasingly popular trend in construction is to focus on simplicity, practicality and environmental friendliness. Modular homes are also moving in this direction. Their style is pleasing to the eye, modern and devoid of unnecessary frills. They are designed in such a way that their use - regardless of whether the building is used for residential purposes or for work, e.g. as an office - is comfortable, ergonomic and as ergonomic as possible.


Are there modular homes of different sizes that can be adapted to individual needs?

Individual models of modular houses have different sizes, both in terms of building and usable area. In addition, it is possible to enlarge the building with further modules, thanks to which we will gain additional rooms or adapt it to our individual needs in any other way. In this respect, modular construction is very flexible, which applies to projects of single-story modular houses, storey, year-round and all others.


What are the differences between one-story and two-story modular houses?

Multi-storey houses offer a larger usable area than one-storey, while maintaining the same building area (example - 2-SPAD). Thanks to this, you can create additional rooms, such as bedrooms or offices. A two-story building, due to the larger usable area, is better suited for a year-round residential house.


Are there ecological modular houses using renewable energy?

Modular homes are basically environmentally friendly by definition. The frame is made of kiln-dried KVH C24 CE wood, while energy efficiency and low operating costs are guaranteed by the use of insulation and joinery with a low thermal conductivity coefficient. In addition, their construction generates much less noise than when using traditional masonry methods, and does not leave any construction waste that needs to be disposed of.

From the purely energy side, a modular house can also be very ecological. Renewable energy can be used to power individual devices included in the installation. For example, it is possible to install a photovoltaic system to generate electricity.
