Stagecoach, built in Carefree, AZ, is the first in a planned rollout of manufactured factory built modular housing designed by Optima DCHGlobal, Inc. Two offset modules measuring 18’x72’x10’ are joined at their long sides to create the house. Another pair of modules measuring 18’x18’x10’ are attached side by side to form the garage. The factory-produced structure is made of Vierendeel steel trusses that supply rigidity and strength and support long spans without diagonal members that would obscure views.
