Description:Looking for visual representation of an idea for 8.5' wide modular construction for single and multifamily applications.
The idea is to create 8.5' W x 40' L (Max) modular "boxes" that stack upon one another and connect at floor and ceiling allowing smooth ceilings and transitions (no bulk heads or furr downs at ceiling transitions). The idea being at 8.5' max span the loads will be minimal and allow for up to 40' (?) clear spans on non exterior walls.
The floor systems would need to be of floor truss construction with a 9-1/4" depth, with the 1st floor being a flat type (or bottom mount) with the 2nd floor being a flat type on exterior walls and top chord mount on clear span side. Sub floor will be 3/4" T&G. The exterior walls would be 2x4 or 2x6 studs at 9' height finished on the outside with 7/16 osb and 1/2" drywall on the inside. The ceilings would be 2x4 or 2x6" joist with a layer of 7/16" and drywall on bottom chord that would be mounted on the double top plate of the exterior wall and flush mounted w/ metal hangers on a 3.5" x 11-7/8" glu-lam or LVL (2-ply 1.75"). The LVL or glu-lam would run the length of the "box" (max 40') and would support the 2nd story floor truss on the top mounted side.
I need a visual representation of the above, one each of the four of the types of "boxes" as noted (one 1st floor with 3 exteriors walls, one 2nd floor with 3 exteriors walls, one 1st floor with only end walls and one 2nd floor with only end walls, all finished as noted (drywall, osb etc.). 3D would be preferable, but 2D would work as well. This is a tool to share with designers and engineers to create a proof of concept, what I am needing at this current time is just the concept in digital form.
Wants:The chosen design would be the one who's digital interpretation most closely represents the described project and which is most useful to help share the idea with others in concept form
Don't Wants:I do not need anything overly stylized nor decorated. Just a simple representation of the description.

Hello Mr. Brad! I attach a blueprint. Includes a section view of the module. It is made based on the measurements of your illustrations, I hope you get closer to what you are looking for. Will you make structural frames on each side of the box length to receive the weight of the structure and maintain the clear length you are looking for?
I await your observations and comments.

Front Addition Elevations / Concept - Mud Room & Game Room
Wanting to create an attractive look to the front of our home while adding a mud room and possibly game room wing off the left side of home. Open to any/ all ideas as I am having hard time visualizing - Front elevations / concepts at this time. Mud Room - - Will come off the front of house where existing front door is located - Approximate size 10' by 10' - One or 2 story - Roof pitch to match right side roof line - Possible open porch on 2nd level if looks good (the 2nd floor center window leads to master bed and can be converted to door)?? - Need roof lines to look good and addition to fit in with existing Game Room - - Large family room off left side of home - 16' x 32' - 1 or 2 stories (most likely 1 but open to 2 if looks good) - Extends approx 10' out from existing home to front - 16' wide - Roof line to match right side addition
Design our Preschool!
We are building a cool new Preschool, based on the idea of an Exploratorium/Preschool hybrid experience with a genetic learning arcade. Portably 4-6 classrooms. Need to meet current state and san francisco city standards. Looking for 60+ students, the more we can accommodate with mindful design to mitigate crowding, the better. This is a chance to build something really cool.
