The USModular team was approached by GAF in January of 2014 with one question: Can you design and build a new house that will be shown on National TV in 75 days as well as get all the necessary permits and demolish the existing home?! USModular was up for the challenge! With the help of all of our partners, including GAF, Cavco West and support from the City of Santee, we built a beautiful 2,282 sq. ft 2 story home for the Conway family.
This beautiful new custom home uses green technology and has 30% more lumber than a traditional Site Built home. This two-story home has 2,282 sf of living space, a large modern kitchen, family room with built in entertainment center, dining room and a guest bedroom with a large bathroom on the 1st floor. The 2nd floor has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms for family members. The attached garage is big enough to house the new car the Conway’s received from The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The interior of the home features custom built white shaker cabinets, custom quartz countertops , engineered hardwood floors and interior finishes chosen and installed by John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino from the HGTV Show “Cousins Undercover”.
Following are some highlight videos and links documenting this amazing story:
