This home exhibits Irontown’s versatility by featuring a modular basement.
The beautiful mountain resort, Martis Camp welcomed another Irontown Home designed by Sage Modern.
This home has some unique features including a modular basement. Many people believe modular construction brings many limitations. We are constantly confronting these limitations and exploring innovative ideas to work around them.
The major advantage to modular construction is the time that it saves versus site built construction. A basement in it’s standard form must be completed onsite after the home is delivered. We felt that this can hinder the modular savings advantage. So we started working on a solution.
We figured out how to build a module that can be placed within the foundation walls allowing the entire home to be completed at the same time. This allows the homeowner instant completion and doesn’t require them to have a long, drawn out process of completing the basement at a later date.
Irontown is constantly conquering the standard modular construction myths by exploring and implementing numerous solutions.
This SageModern home was designed with significant consideration of the Lake Tahoe areas natural setting to blend in with the gradual slope, forest and adjacent putting park. SageModern has built other projects with Irontown Homes and has chosen the modular home building process as a refreshing alternative to a long on-site building process.
