Custom Modular Construction
There is a common misconception about Modular Homes being labeled as manufactured or “trailers.” Our Modular Homes are built indoors, in a controlled environment with your own interior touches and designs such as custom flooring, carpet, cabinetry, countertops, trim molding, doors, paint, and lighting. From elegant, Luxurious Bathrooms to the Gourmet Kitchens, the award winning interior designs will rival most site built homes. The exterior elevation of your dream home can also have customization with windows, exterior doors, siding, brick, rock treatments and more. On site improvements including garages, covered porches, screened porches, decks and sunrooms are just a few more ways that your Modular Home can be customized to your highest expectations. Let Brothers Housing & Real Estate, Inc help you customize your Modular Home from top to bottom.

2×6 Exterior Walls 16″ O.C.
All of our Modular Homes are built with 2″x 6″ exterior walls while most traditional builders are using 2″x 4″ lumber. Our Modular Home exterior walls are built 16″ on center, which results in our Modular Homes being constructed with 30% more lumber, more glue, and more nails. This construction method makes our Modular Homes heavier and stronger than conventional site built homes and those of other competitors. Framer Series Floor Joist lumber ensures more durable floor joist for your flooring system. Our Modular Homes withstand transportation at 60mph (hurricane force winds) and are lifted by a crane and set onto the foundation. Brothers Housing & Real Estate, Inc Modular Homes pass the test of durability.
R-21 High Density Insulation
With the usage of 2″x 6″exterior walls, our Modular Homes allow the usage of R-21 High Density Batten Insulation. This is another way of reaching some of the highest energy efficiency ratings available in any homes that are being built today. Most traditional builders are using 2″x 4″ lumber which would only allow R-13 Insulation.
The R-21 High Density Batten Insulation is used in combination with Dupont Tyvek Exterior Home Wrap, which is an air infiltration barrier. Dupont Tyvek Home Wrap aids in stopping air movement through the walls, and also blocks excess water from entering the walls. This type of construction helps in producing an even more energy efficient Modular Home.
LP Tech Shield Roof Sheathing
At Brothers Housing & Real Estate, Inc our Modular Home roof systems can also come with TechShield Radiant Barrier Roof Sheathing. TechShield also helps in the energy efficiency department by reducing attic temperatures by up to 30 degrees and reducing cooling costs by almost 20%!! Techshield is a Radiant Barrier that reflects the ultraviolent rays from the sun preventing up to 97% of the radiant heat to enter the attic area of your home. The odds keep piling on the energy savings side of a new Modular Home from Brothers Housing & Real Estate, Inc. Your new Modular Home will also include the installation of a 13 Seer Goodman heat pump that comes with its own 10 year parts and labor warranty!!
Framer Series Floor Joists
Weyerhaeuser brings you another breakthrough in structural framing: Lumber that stays so straight it comes with a warranty.
Our patented computerized grading system—the result of 10 years in testing—goes far beyond visual grading capabilities to ensure that every piece starts straight and stays straight. We even mark each board crown to eliminate guesswork on the jobsite.
STRAIGHT TALK ABOUT
Weyerhaeuser’s Framer Series™lumber is mechanically graded to virtually eliminate
warping, and each board comes with the crown clearly marked to speed up
installation. With lumber like this, framing goes up fast, crews won’t spend valuable
time culling, and there’s less material waste when the job is done.
Each piece of Framer Series™lumber is performance tested to meet specific strength
and density requirements. Because it’s more stable than commodity boards,
Framer Series™lumber is ideal for any application—even those where vertical-use-only
products aren’t allowed.
Only Framer Series™Lumber offers so many benefits:
- Limited warranty against warping
- Floors stay flat and even
- Crown edge clearly marked on each board
- Full lateral shear wall capacities—no species reduction needed
- Meets or exceeds all building code requirements for framing lumber
- Mold inhibitor helps material stay clean and bright, reducing product loss
