Cutting Edge Homes Prepares for IBS SHow VIllage

Cutting Edge Homes will be showing off designs that developed in partnership with two incredible architects that design modular buildings:

Country House - Ross Farland with Dezineworks! in PortlandOregon,  

Fire Island Home - Chris Krager from MA Modular and KRDB in

Planning was made more complex by using a Timber frame in the Country House and SmartPanels combined with the modular buildings in both buildings. What they are doing is out there they have given their process a tech-y name "Modular 2.0."  The system is designed to eliminate many of the architectural constraints in modular construction and reduce shipping cost and overhead associated with big empty air spaces in modular buildings.

These photos of their Country House, the larger of our two Show Village homes, show how they are using mods, panels, and L-shaped mod-panel hybrid components to create a 40'X24' great room space with lofts on either side from the 2nd level looking down.  The Douglas Fir Timber frame core of the building, which make a 24' X 40' great room vaults to the 28' top of the 2nd level.

Good Luck at IBS
