3 Popular Modular Designs for First Home Buyers

Jan 16

Buying your first home is an exciting experience – and it’s even better when you get to choose a design you love and build your dream modular home from scratch!

The question is then, how do you choose the right design? Considering your needs, both now and in the future, is key, as is being clear on your budget upfront. Exploring your options is another important step, and a great way to do this is to visit display homes (in person or virtually) and to check out completed projects for design ideas. 

However, even with all the above in mind it can still be hard to know where to start. So to give you some direction and help you get the ball rolling we’ve put together an article showcasing 3 of our favourite modular designs that are popular with first home buyers right now.


Hampton 14

If you’re like most first home buyers, you’re looking for value for money, a flexible floor plan and of course a stylish, modern design – and the Hampton 14 delivers all this and more. As one of our most popular designs, it features a spacious, central living zone that is square in shape, which along with the 9ft ceilings gives the home a wonderful sense of space and comfort. With three bedrooms and a well-appointed kitchen complete with a walk-in pantry, this design is the ideal fit for couples or small families.

A key feature of the Shoreham 14 is the smart layout which makes it suited to both couples and families. The three bedrooms are situated along one side of the house, with the other side devoted to a large open plan living space. The master bedroom is a generous size and features an ensuite and walk-in robe, while the main bathroom is ideally located between bedrooms 2 and 3. Bedroom 3 can also easily double as a study, a feature that is becoming more and more sought-after as working from home becomes more common.

A recent addition to our pre-designed range, the stylish Portsea 14 is impressive in every way. The gable façade looks stunning paired with the large picture windows, creating light-filled spaces and lots of street appeal. The floor plan has been designed with modern families in mind, with all three bedrooms positioned for privacy. The spacious living zone is located at the rear, opening out to the optional L-shaped decking which lies between the two wings, offering added protection from the elements for year-round enjoyment. Bedroom 1 includes a walk-in robe and ensuite, while bedroom 3 is large enough to double as a second living room if desired.
