Westchester Modular Homes – Martha’s Vineyard & Nantucket

Island homes and modular construction are a perfect match. However, scheduling and coordination are key to not sinking.


  • Building on an island is a highly-coordinated dance.
  • The need to barge modules across the water complicates scheduling. It can also lead to weather delays and other logistical headaches.
  • The fact that many islands are tourist destinations can cause delays during the busy summer months.
  • Despite these difficulties, modular has real advantages for an island build. A modular home can be finished for less, thanks to the high cost of shipping building materials for a site-built home.


It sounds simple enough. Build a volumetric modular product, load it on a truck, then put it on a barge and ship it to an island. Highway travel, ocean travel – same difference, right?

Not quite. The process of building modular homes on an island does pose additional risks and challenges. Island modular builders assert, however, that the lower cost of building and delivering modular compared to the costs of an island on-site, stick-built home outweigh the difficulties.
