The award winning home was built on Cape Cod, MA with builder Old Harbor Homes. Together, Epoch Homes and Old Harbor Homes have partnered to win a number of design awards. The ocean front home offers expansive views from all levels and incorporates complex structural engineering to maximize the glazing in a challenging high wind environment. The initial design was by the architectural firm Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects. Epoch Homes converted the structure to a modular approach to reduce costs and to speed the time of construction. The specifications were developed to incorporate the Epoch Homes’ Healthy Home Specification, using low VOC building materials, finishes, and systems to control indoor air quality.
John Ela, Epoch CEO and owner stated, “Our employees are thrilled to be recognized, once again for the custom homes that we have an opportunity to build. In this case, custom elements included design, structure and healthy materials. We often say that modular should be viewed as a construction technology that saves time and money, rather than a particular look, or a cookie cutter design, and this home is a great illustration. Our long history of building award winning homes has gone a long way to dispel old myths and misunderstandings about modular homes.” He concluded, “Modular homes are faster, lower cost, higher quality and lower risk, than other construction technologies.”
