Vaulting a flat ceiling on a modular home?


First of all, would it be possible? If so would it be a horrible and painful prosses? We are renovating our modular home and this was something we wanted to do in the main living space (living room, dining room and master bedroom) but not the whole house. I'm assuming it would be expensive too. I don't know anything about this, wich is why I'm asking here. Can anyone give me some pointers and some how to's if this is something I could do? It would be my husband and I do this project.

This is not something we are getting our hopes up on, just hoping this could be a possability while were at it. Thank you for your time.

This is a 1981 modular home, that's in very good condition considering the age. it just needs a few repairs and we're opening up a room, and updating the overal look.

Unless someone was there on site no way to tell.
If it's a trussed roof, forget it.

Modular homes are delivered on flat bed trucks and are permanently attached to the foundation on site. The roof is generally transported separately. The modules can be stacked providing two story homes and homes with volume ceilings. Once completed, a modular home is indistinguishable from a typical site-built home.
