East Coast Factory Challenging West Coast Prefab Homes

Simplex Homes, who is celebrating their 45th Anniversary this year, has a secret I'm going to expose to every modular home builder in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states.

They can build those West Coast modern prefabs you see in magazines and your customers ask for. Not only can they build, here is a link to their secret pages called Modern Architectural Modular.

Shhh! Don't tell the builders you compete with where they can find this secret vault of West Coast prefabs built for the East Coast market. I'm sure the folks at Simplex want to keep this a secret.

That is funny, oh wait you are serious! Factories should concentrate on making good East Coast homes before they venture out to West Coast style.

A few years ago we inquired about there solor cottage asking for a plan, perhaps one that they had built. They hadn't built one, the rep sent that rendering you see on the post here....Now there are a few Canadian companies that are big on that design.....

It's easy to build modern prefabs for the mild climate of California but much harder for the demanding climate of the East Coast.

I built my first prefab with Simplex and I am listed on their Modern Page with a link to my website. Here is an article from the NY Times.

I have since built another modern prefab but with Icon-Legacy and which is documented on my LinkedIn page here .
The modular home utilizes SIP's and triple glazed window both of which are unusual for prefabs anywhere.

We are working on a few other homes like this one in Montauk for which we are awaiting planning approvals.
