Nobody was more surprised than I was when asked by Devin Perry, Manager of Membership Programs for the Building Systems Council (BSC) to lead off their first ever “Lunch-N-Learn” webinar for systems-built home builders.
My topic was where the modular home industry is today and where did I see it going into the future. Easy topic but you’d be wrong.
The modular home industry has seen a lot of changes since the housing bust of 2008 with many factories closing their doors, builders leaving the business, tougher building codes, tightening mortgage regulations and new types of buildings bringing opportunities not even imagined just 10 years ago.
Being asked to keep my presentation to 10-15 minutes with the rest of the hour being filled with Q & A seemed like a challenge. First, I’ve never been at a loss for words about our industry and 15 minutes could be filled just talking about any of the above mentioned topics and secondly asking builders to open up in a forum with 80 of their peers listening usually doesn’t work out so well.
However, not only was I able to keep my part to 15 minutes; builders and factory owners from around the country asked enough questions that the hour flew by quickly.
