When it comes to constructing a dream home, rarely do they look like cookie cutter designs. Indeed, whether you are seeking to build a weekend getaway or a retirement home, everyone brings their own personal preferences to their new home’s design. Then too, each building site is unique, with our goal to make your new home look like it organically belongs on that landscape–instead of being awkwardly imposed on it. With all these variables, you want a lot of design and construction options at your fingertips. That’s why Carolina Diversified Builders uses a variety of building systems and techniques to craft our clients homes–all discussed here in more in depth.
Carolina Diversified Builders specializes in building custom modular homes “on your lot,” using Handcrafted Homes as our modular home supplier.
The modular home system is light years ahead of the old fashioned site building, stick by stick. Indeed, modular technology is stronger, better quality and faster construction. Because they are built within a controlled environment, unaffected by weather, using the latest tools, modular homes are built stronger and greener than any on-site construction. Within the state-of-the-art factory, homes are constructed from the inside out; drywall seams, outlet joints and other openings are sealed airtight before enclosing them in the outer walls. Homes can be set and weather-tight within a single day, eliminating the danger of exposure to the elements, as with site building.
At Carolina Diversified Builders, we’ve built a variety of custom modular home styles, from ranch and colonial, to contemporary and rustic. So contact us today to find out how we can make your dreams come true-for less! Learn More View Interior Photos View Exterior Photos

If you’re drawn to the timeless beauty of these homes, you’re not alone. Timber frame homes have a enduring strength that resonates with all who get to experience them.
We use timber frames handcrafted by Cabin Creek Timber Frames, an award winning company with a long history of creating structures of enduring beauty and strength. One of the most compelling reasons to build a timber frame home is the longevity associated with this form of construction. Building without nails using mortice and tenon joinery got its start in the 1300s in Great Britain, which have been continually inhabited comfortably since then. And there are many which were built in the 1600s on in this country which are still lived in.
There are no load bearing walls in a timber frame. Consequently, one may have as many windows or doors in a wall as one wishes, and interior walls may be changed or removed as the homeowner wishes, with no structural consequences. Timbers may be recycled at the end of the buildings life, some centuries down the road.
The frame is quite strong by itself, and when combined with the very strong structural insulated panels or sips on the walls and roof, it becomes even stronger. Timber frames have been resistant to storms and seismic events which have destroyed many other stick built homes nearby. Learn MoreView Photos
The panels consist of an outer and inner skin of a structural board, OSB (oriented strand board) which are glued to the expanded styrene foam core. Structural lumber is also incorporated for plates, splines, door and window framing. The resulting product is a laminated panel that is structurally strong and offers a high insulation value. The panels are fabricated at the factory and shipped to the building site for assembly.
At Carolina Diversified Structures, we’ve built SIP homes a number of times. So contact us today to find out how we can make your new home an energy efficient marvel-for less! Learn More
