Half breakers in my GE box?

I've been to a couple of electrical supply stores in my area and searched the web with no answer.

I have a GE TM3015C - MOD1 main panel. Will this allow the use of half size breakers? I only have two spots left and am about to use them.

Thank you!

Been there, done that.
You are out of luck. That panel only takes 1" breakers. Even "interchangeable" half size breakers don't fit. Start thinking about a subpanel.
Looking back, I wish I had installed a Square D Homeline panel--that panel will take halfs.

Thanks, thought that was the answer... My house is only 10 years old, hard to believe the builders picked a box that wouldn't take them. Now I know what not to do!
