All components are manufactured to strict building standards & codes, and thoroughly inspected every step of the way.
State of the art computerized equipment ensures precision-built components.
Drier lumber means less warping, shrinking, twisting, rotting or swelling.
Years of buying experience get you the best quality and value in all your building products.
Our goal is to keep manufactured homeownership affordable and attainable. One way we do this is by saving money and time through climate-controlled manufacturing. It ensures the lumber and materials remain dry and are not exposed to the elements, this way there are less warping and twisting and the lines stay plumb and perfect. A more comfortable atmosphere ensures there are no lost workdays to weather and our employees are comfortable too. That means we get your home shipped out from one of our facilities across the northwestern and central United States on schedule.
The Thomas Energy Wall
Our factory assembled energy wall applies a 1 ¾” rigid extruded polystyrene insulation that creates a thermal break (no cold studs). This design reduces heat loss, increases energy-saving, increases R-value, and eliminates on-site costs for installing rigid installation. Exterior sheathing allows for the easy installation of any siding type.
