Method Homes Comes to the East Coast

Method Homes, builder of sustainable, modern, prefab homes and commercial structures, announces the expansion of its offerings to include direct production on the East Coast with the launch of a new Pennsylvania manufacturing facility. Method Homes has built a large portfolio highly custom, architecturally detailed prefabricated homes and commercial projects throughout the U.S. and Canada since its launch in 2008. 

The new 15,000 square foot facility, located in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, will service regions along the Eastern Seaboard and outlying areas.  “Method Homes has had a great amount of East Coast interest since its inception,” says Method Homes Co-Founder Brian Abramson. “We have identified a demand in the region for precision-engineered, modern prefab construction and are pleased to bring our product to the East Coast at a time when modular construction is experiencing a period of growth.”

Method Homes offers eight lines of sustainable, architect-designed home models that range from rustic modern cabins, uber modern urban homes, and Net-Zero ready homes to classic cottages. Clients have the opportunity to fully customize system packages, finish options, and specifications. In addition, Method offers 100 percent custom home solutions. “Each of our homes is custom-tailored by our architects and precision-built by our master craftsman. This allows the homebuyer more flexibility and customization with a reduced construction timeline and fixed cost contract that makes prefab a smart choice,” Abramson comments.

The Seattle-based company, who was named Seattle Business magazine’s Emerging Manufacturer of the Year in 2011 and Washington State’s Fastest Growing Private Company in 2012 by Puget Sound Business Journal, plans to incrementally grow their East Coast presence, initially taking on a select number of projects. “Our focus is on efficiency, innovation, and craftsmanship,” says Abramson.  

Method’s first home constructed in their new Pennsylvania facility, a Method Cabin Model 1, was shipped and installed in Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains in July 2013. In progress now is a custom home by Manhattan-based McBride & Associates Architects bound for the Berkshires in Massachusetts in late October, followed by a pair of  East Hampton residences by Seattle and Palm Springs-based Chris Pardo Design: Elemental Architecture.   

The firm is currently accepting commercial and residential East Coast projects from architects, developers, and private clients. For more on Method’s projects, offerings, and upcoming East Coast work, please visit methodhomes.net.
