There are many builders, developers and designers
who sell similar concepts and brands. Our company
has a long history and background in the modular
industry. We have taken what we have learned
over the last 25+ years about the modular home
manufacturing industry to the next level. As a group
we have spent a long time strongly focusing on what
drives the building cost/cost per square foot and have
learned how to control it. We then developed a system
that stream lines the very labor intensive building
process while still providing a high level of custom
finishes and options. Our system applies to stick built,
post frame and modular construction projects.
