Smarter house, beautiful home

Factory Floor


Advantages of factory-built homes


1. The materials do not get exposed to the weather before or during construction, and all homes are precision engineered. The result is a better quality home than a traditional site-built home.


2. Factory-built homes can be built up to 3 to 4 months faster.


3. The construction is 30-50% less expensive than the traditional building method.


4. Building permit costs are far lower, and permits are not required aside from garage, foundation, and utilities.


5. We are exempt from title 24 (solar requirements) so y can have bigger windows and more of them


6. We offer a full 7-year warranty as opposed to the traditional 1-year builder warranty.


7. The homes are governed by Manufactured-Housing-Advantage (MH Advantage) under federal law, and therefore, eligible for a lower interest rate but appraised at the same value as a traditional stick-built house.
