Why choose a modern modular home? Here are seven benefits

From adaptable layouts to saving the planet - here are the lifestyle benefits you can expect when you go modular

There’s nothing wrong with the old way of building homes – but have you ever considered a new way?

Modern methods of building homes question tradition, lead with innovation, and utilise new developments, discoveries, techniques, and materials, to create better quality homes for all. 

Homes that are modern and reliable, and that last a lifetime.

House by Urban Splash use modern methods of construction to create their modular homes, which are designed to boost wellbeing, encourage healthy living, and promote lifestyle benefits traditional housing will never be able to facilitate.

You might have noticed these modern houses in New Islington, a new neighbourhood packed with local gems – from the city’s best bakery to an award-winning brewery, a top chippy, and even a spa.

Even better, until 30th November, they are paying Stamp Duty on selected homes, saving you £16,500 – and you could be moving in before Christmas.

Ready to make a move? Here are seven benefits of choosing a modular home.

You can design and change the layout

House by Urban Splash homes are adaptable, so you can change your home’s layout as your life circumstances evolve.

The structural support is contained in the exterior walls, which allows almost every internal wall to be moved or removed.

You can make room for a nursery or home office, or remove a wall completely to enjoy a full-floor master suite or a spacious open-plan living space.

And with selected homes, you can even be part of the design process before construction begins.

High quality and precision reduces snags and stress

Surely building in a dry, clean factory is much better than building outside while being blasted by British weather?

House by Urban Splash modular homes can be built to higher quality standards with fewer issues with cracking and drying, greater air tightness, and less shrinkage of materials (from changing temperatures) than those built on-site.

They’re also able to monitor every step of the process, check that the quality remains consistently high, and ensure each home is finished with meticulous precision.

This method of construction also results in less snags compared to traditional builds, making it a less stressful process for buyers.

When it comes to design, due to accurate assembly, these homes don’t need dated crown molding between the wall and ceilings, giving each floor a crisp, modern aesthetic.

Quicker construction – so you can move in sooner

With no restrictions on light or temperature (and no need to worry about an unpredictable snowstorm in the middle of May), you can expect quicker construction.

And as materials can be stored in bulk nearby, and can be delivered in more efficient quantities, you’re rarely waiting around for things – reducing the risk of delays.

This means you can plan your moving-in day in advance, move into your new home in less time, save money on renting, and enjoy a less stressful moving home experience.

They’re built to last

Modular homes are designed to last every bit as long as traditional buildings.

Like any home, it’ll need to be looked after properly, but with a bit of TLC, it’ll last just as long – if not longer – than a regular house.

It’s also approved by BOPAS, a scheme jointly developed by The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Lloyd’s Register, and BLP Insurance.

Improved heating insulation keeps monthly bills down

With House by Urban Splash homes, there is no performance gap between design and construction. 

Better, tighter finishes stop warm air from escaping, and this, combined with better insulation, reduces the amount of fuel you’re using to heat your home – helping you to keep your monthly bills down.

Better soundproofing

These homes don’t just meet UK soundproofing standards – they exceed them.

And that’s not just wall-to-wall, there’s better insulation in the ceilings, too.

In fact, with modular homes, there’s a ceiling and a floor between each storey, increasing the soundproofing and creating a far more relaxing and harmonious environment inside the house.

They help to save the planet

Managed quantities, controlled stock and economic deliveries are just a few of the ways in which House by Urban Splash reduce each home’s footprint. 

In fact, it takes five tonnes less CO2 to make 50 factory-build homes than the equivalent site-constructed homes.

Reducing their carbon footprint has always been important to House by Urban Splash, and factory-build homes perfectly suit their ethos.

The controlled conditions significantly reduce time, cost, transportation, and energy – and when it comes to general waste in their factory, 97.5% of it is recycled.

Homes are also sustainably built and are fitted with eco-friendly features including rooftop solar panels.

Modular homes are the future of housing – they’re good for the planet, for the people who work in the construction industry, and for the homeowners
