We’re used to thinking of modular homes as houses that are nearly indistinguishable from their stick-built cousins, but technically, a modular home can refer to any home that is constructed in parts at an off-site location and then assembled at its final destination.
Take the home pictured below in Woodland, Utah. It was designed by Gigaplex Architects and is constructed from two metal grain silos, joined together to create one very cool 1,800 square foot house. The circular exterior creates circular rooms inside, and, like many modular homes, the silo house is extremely energy efficient.
Excel Homes doesn’t have any designs that use grain silos, but after seeing this home, we might ask our architects to look into it.
