28 April 2020

OK, so not everything about home building is highly entertaining. Take for instance weather-resistant barriers within the home construction process. Not a very sexy topic on the surface, but barrier protection is a very, very important element of the home construction process and some (if not most) builders fail to give barrier protection its proper due. We’re here to tell you that the protective measures that we use here at Avalon Building Systems is the highest quality barrier material on the market today. Again, not all builders use the quality of barrier products necessary to guarantee a moisture infiltration protection system that retards mold and mildew build up within walls and attics. Our barrier wrap also helps prevent exterior wall moisture damage.

Custom Modular Home Bedroom Design Options

10 April 2020

Custom Modular Home Bedroom Design Options in Boston, MA

Designing the bedroom within your new custom modular home should be a fun and uplifting experience. We take great pride in helping you see a multitude of options and to ultimately arrive a design that promotes comfort and relaxation. We are thrilled to consult our clients and help them see through the infinite decisions regarding spacing, form, color, texture, and lighting. Let’s look deeper into these things.


Comfort should be the primary consideration when laying out your bedroom interior. It does not only mean shopping the largest bed but also making sure that it won't take up all the space. Comfort also means you can move around and navigate freely inside the room. Moreover, closets can be opened without tripping over the furniture.

Fabrics and Textures

Choose fabric materials that can add character to your bedroom. When purchasing carpets, choose the one that complements the entire look of the room and makes the ambiance more welcoming. Make sure it feels good in the feet so opt for soft and fluffy carpets. When decorating the walls, consider adding varieties of patterns and textures. You may use papers with unique designs and a burlap texture. Silks, wood panels and polished concretes or plasters can make your room look extraordinary.

Furthermore, it's important to think about color since it's the key to make the bedroom relaxing. It should blend well with the hue of your bedroom walls and the elements that are in it. Also, choose a tone that works well both in the morning and at night.


Use bright lights inside closets so it will be easier to find your stuff. But dim lights are recommended when you need to sleep or relax. So, consider having a light regulator to easily regulate your lighting inside the bedroom.


The kind of paintings and furniture you choose reflects your personality. Also, how you place and arrange them in order shows your style.

Avalon Building Systems are there not only to construct your new modular home but to be there for you throughout the journey. That begins with concept design consultation to turning over the keys to your new home. That first night’s sleep in your new dream master bedroom is going to be a memorable one.

Modular Home Closet Design Consultation – It’s the Little Things

27 March 2020

Modular Home Closet Design Consultation – It’s the Little Things in Boston, MA

Is closet design and layout important? Ask anyone who did not give this subject its due consideration and you’ll discover that closet design is VERY important to the overall quality of your home comfort. So, as it pertains to the subject of closet design for those of you considering new modular home construction here in Boston, below are just some of the things for you to consider:

1. The Shape of The Walk-in Closet

Typically, walk-in closets come in three shapes: the “L”, “U” and the straight walk-in closet. All these shapes are suitable to store clothes, dresses, bags and shoes. However, the "L" shaped closet requires two walls to maximize storage utilization while "U" requires three walls. Finally, the straight closet design or the "I" can be tailored to the desired wardrobe size. It can also be customized to separate male from female stuff on the walls of each side perfect for couples.

2. Include an Additional Storage Adequate To The Amount of Belongings

Prior to making a space for walk-around, built-in or reach-in dresser, consider first the number and types of stuff that you need to store inside. Then, you can now decide the design and layout for the hanging space, drawers, shelving and cabinets. The goal is to prevent excess stuff. It will defeat the purpose of making your closet organized if there are still more stuff that don't get a spot.

3. Select the Desired Wardrobe Style

There are countless closet styles out there. Choose the one that matches your taste and style and that which accommodates your stuff. If you want a simple style, go for contemporary styling. It will display your array of fashionable items neatly and beautifully.

4. Include Lovely Mirrors

Having number of different styles of mirrors in your walk-around wardrobe can in fact save you time.

5. Consider an Island in the Center

If you have a roomy space, an island can be a marvelous addition as they provide extra storage compartments and help when planning an outfit. When planning a closet peninsula, make sure you have 36 inch around the island on all sides. This will provide you enough space to move around.

6. Place a Dressing Chairs, Bench or Stools

Chairs or a bench will provide you a site to rest or try on your shoes. Stools are also excellent when you need to get some items on top of the rack.

7. Chandelier or Downlights

Ornamental (yet functional) lighting will enhance the look and overall enjoyment of your walk-in closet.

What we want you to take away from this blog post is not only the fact that your future modular home is fully customizable all the way down to individual closet space, but that the award winning professionals here at Boston’s Avalon Building Systems are here to consult and guide you through the customizable details of your next home.

Avalon Building System Modular Multi-Family Homes

As the population ages, children in their 40’s are looking at helping their parents sell homes and downsize. But where will your healthy parents, who only need less space, live? Modular additions and modular in-law apartments are the perfect solution.

Adding an addition to your home used to be a long and stressful process. Modular additions are an easier, less time consuming solution and they can be added on to your home regardless of if your original home was built with modular construction or not. Modular construction can give you that addition or modular in-law apartment in less time and often for less money. With the right plan, any home, stick built or modular can be expanded with a modular addition. Modular construction is designed with architects, so your dream in-law apartment can be customized to your parent’s needs while still keeping your home visually attractive and appealing. Modular construction will always meet all state, local and federal building codes as well as numerous quality control standards while under construction in the factory.

If your parents need to downsize, by the time your parents’ home gets put on the market and sold, you will have a completed modular addition. For less money and time and a far less stressful construction process, contact Avalon Building Systems for your modular addition or in-law apartment.
