Modular Home Additions
Modular construction is enjoying a renaissance. Even though it’s been around since the early 1900s, advanced technology has made it more cost-efficient, reduced construction time, and added to the quality and customization possibilities for your home. The most popular type of modular addition is attached to the side of a home to create either a separate living unit, such as an in-law apartment, or additional rooms, such as a new kitchen, dining room, and great room.
QUALITY: The addition is built in a climate-controlled factory and delivered to the home-site nearly completed with only hook-ups remaining.
COST: About 20-30% of the cost of materials end up in the dumpster at traditional sites because of waste. That’s not the case with modular additions. In fact, overall savings can be up to 50% compared original on-site construction.
TIME: Most additions take four months or longer. With modular additions, once design and permitting are done, it takes as little as four to six weeks to complete the addition. Which means much less disruption while various workers are in and out, fabricating and installing original construction.
CUSTOMIZATION: Modular does not mean cookie-cutter. While most manufacturers have a portfolio of home plans to choose from, computer-assisted design (CAD) allows limitless design and customization possibilities.
It’s important when considering a modular addition to work with a General Contractor who has experience in this specialized field. Chesapeake Energy Homes has installed many modular additions in our area and can guide you through every step of the process.

Thank you so much Don, your knowledge and expertise has been invaluable in making our dream home build a reality.
Don Althoff is one of those people who knows what needs to be done, and how to get it done. His finished work is very good, and he keeps the projects on time. Very pleasant person to work with.
Don was always available to discuss any aspect of the job and often brought really creative craftsman like suggestions that resulted in improvements in the appearance and quality of the finished product.
I have worked with a number of construction firms over the years but I have never found any that bring all of the attributes that Don and his crew have. They are amazingly talented in nearly all aspects of building, design, electrical, plumbing etc. and they are above all else honest and honorable with a great sense of pride in their work.
On a scale of 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest) I would rate Don Althoff and his construction crew a solid 10.
