a long history of providing High Quality Homes in the western United
States and is pleased to share the following information with you.
We manufacture a wide range of Developer Series Homes,
both in single and multi-family design. Our products are approved and built
to the H.U.D. manufactured housing code and U.B.C. factory built code. In building
to these codes, it makes it virtually impossible to experience any zoning or
approval problems. In the design of our most popular application, the single
family, Residential series was created. This series meets the needs of developers
for both subdivisions and infill scattered lots.
In this information package, you'll see samples of our Entry Level (EL) and
Good Neighbor (TA) Series homes. These are only a sample of the many floor
plans we have available. If in the event we currently don't have the right
floor plan for your specific needs, we have the ability to develop and design
custom plans to fit almost any requirement necessary for the success of the
Since our inception, it has been our goal to dispel the myth that manufactured
housing is sub-standard when compared to its site built counterpart. We believe
that after you review this information, you'll have a new opinion of manufactured
housing. This concept can provide you with a better and safer solution to the
building process when compared to the centuries old stick-by-stick method still
being used in today's ever-changing market.

Cost Breakdown By Plants
The above is an
example of the cost of two different price category homes. It's designed
to provide you an overview and can change based on the specifications
per your specific project and size home. In your consideration of
this concept in housing, there are other areas to include in your
analysis to properly evaluate your total savings. Those key points
are as follows:
Reduced Site Work:
Homes are designed so that after lot prep and installation of a foundation
system, the home is just simply set in place. The home comes from the plant
90% complete with your site work consisting of garage, flat work, connection
of laterals, grading, carpeting, clean up and landscaping.
We are the affordable alternative. In a time when only 20% of the population
can afford to purchase a home, we know how important competitive value is to
the time home buyer. That is why we developed a line of floor plans that will
fit a broad range of price points and customers requirements. We also offer
a full range of upgrades that will make this one of the finest private property
packages on the market.
Look of On-Site Built Houses:
It was imperative that this product not carry with it any perceived negatives
that have been associated with the mobile home and manufactured housing industry.
Therefore, we put extra effort into designing a product that looks just like
its site built counterpart. This means not only from the exterior elevations,
but with interior appointments and materials as well.
Western Homes has the finest manufacturing team in the industry. The average
tenure of our employees is ten years. Our employees enjoy the profession and
they are proud of the products we manufacture. Each and every home not only
incorporates the finest materials we can buy, but it goes through an extensive
series of quality control checks. Every house we build meets or exceeds the
requirements of federal HUD or local UBC guidelines. All construction procedures
and life safety systems (electrical, heating and plumbing) are certified to
be free of manufacturing defects for one (1) full year from date of purchase.
All Steel/Perimeter Framed "Super Floor"
(Ideal for permanent foundations or over
We at Western Homes don't just build you a house and forget about you. We have
a professional team of engineers, project managers and service professionals
that will give you the kind of backup needed to assure you a trouble free,
profitable project from the first house.
Lower Soft Cost:
Since the dwellings have been previously approved, you should have lower plan
check and inspection fees. With the homes being produced at the factory, you'll
need less general and administrative cost because you will have fewer people
involved in the building process. This will also reduce your course of construction
insurance and workers comp. Savings will also be realized in the reduction
of pilferage and damage, plus the elimination of standing inventory due to
a much shorter building cycle.
We hope you can see the advantages this concept provides in the control of
cost and profit.
We would like to thank you for your interest and look forward to hearing from
