Chalet Style modular homes combine a rustic feel with all the modern comforts modular building allows. Chalet modular homes are easily identifiable by their high, pointed roofs which are usually tilted at extreme angles.

Typically, Townhouse plans are upscale duplexes, row houses or other multi-family structures designed with a little more flair, fashion and style than common multi-family buildings. They are designed as single-family homes and connected to a similar house by a side wall.
Often, Townhouse plans are built in densely populated areas where land is precious and housing is at a premium such as growing metropolitan areas. These special structures are designed to save space while still offering individual living units for families, couples or singles. Most townhouse plans are two or three levels and range in style, size and finished square footage. Duplex plans and Triplexes share some similar features with townhouse plans.
