About Us

Our Company Vision

We provide the mobile home community with design and construction quality previously only available in hand built homes. Today’s mobile home buyers are demanding and receiving energy efficient, beautifully designed and substantially constructed houses. Our goal is to provide a home that is equal to a site built home at one half the price.

We can coordinate with licensed contractors to ensure a seamless installation.

We can introduce you to lenders that can structure a loan according to your particular profile.

We are located in Petaluma, CA. We serve the North Bay Area including all of Sonoma County, Napa County, Marin County and Solano County.
