Question of the Week - July, 28

Not every modular home factory wants or can build custom homes like many modular home builders are demanding today, so here is this week’s question.


If a modular home factory were to just build high end custom homes, would it find a market?

Before the 2008 housing crash if one wanted a truly custom modular home all you had to do was go to Haven Homes. Of course they were priced higher than standard run of the mill modular homes but even then their homes were still less costly than stick building.
Is there a Haven Homes out there ready to serve the custom builder. I sure hope so and quickly.

Every factory that has tried this approach has failed.

Is there a co=op or group of custom builders willing to commit and deliver enough production orders to a factory within 350 miles of the plant that meets the plant's production needs to remain profitable? I think NOT.

Normally I post w/ my name. Not today. My factory does great custom work, and they avoid MF projects (they are doing light/small commercial on occasion which are essentially full-on custom anyway). But their backlog is growing, and quite frankly, I want to keep them all to myself!
