Rochester Homes is thrilled to announce that our LaPorte Model Modular Home recently was named an Entry of Distinction by the Building Systems Council Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Home Design. 

Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Home Design

Every year, the Jerry Rouleau Awards for Excellence in Home Design recognizes the best designs in systems-built housing with categories that look for creative and efficient designs that reflect the unique nature of a building technique, including log, timber frame, modular, panelized and concrete. 

Our LaPorte Model Modular Home was named an Entry of Distinction in the category for modular home designs less than 2,000 square feet. 

The laporte model

At just 1,880 square feet, the LaPorte Model is the perfect home for a variety of buyers, whether they’re a first-time homeowner or an empty nester. Built for both comfort and utility, this home packs a lot into its three-bedroom, two-bath floor plan. The LaPorte Model creates a feeling of openness and spaciousness with its combined living, dining and kitchen areas and its large windows and nine-foot ceilings. 

As you enter through the home’s pre-installed integral front porch, you are greeted with a welcoming foyer with a decorative drywall arch and an entry closet for coats, shoes and additional storage. 

As you enter the living area, you’ll notice simple details throughout the home that create warmth and efficiency at the same time. Pendant lights provide lighting over an island workstation that also doubles as a convenient eating area. The kitchen boasts flat-panel, slate-painted cabinetry that seamlessly complements both the plumbing fixtures and the stainless-steel appliances. 

Just down the hallway is a utility room with built-in cabinetry and a barn door entrance instead of a hinged swing door. Next is a full bath that provides services to both guest bedrooms. The master bedroom suite features a spacious walk-in closet that spans an entire wall. The attached master bath features an oversized, deluxe walk-in shower with double bowl sinks and dual linen closets for convenient storage.
