Update on the New Modular Factory in Colorado

The 110,000 square foot state-of-the-art housing manufacturing facility by Fading West is under construction on the south edge of Buena Vista that when complete will provide 100 skilled construction and production jobs in Chaffee County and may produce up to 700 homes each year. It's scheduled to begin production this November.

The climate-controlled site is scheduled to begin production around Nov. 1 of this year. 

This is hardly the first project for Fading West in Chaffee County, rather it is just the next generation of the firm’s commitment to this county.

Back in 2017, Fading West was the driving force for The Farm; when fully built out, the 218 unit attainable housing project in Buena Vista will exemplify a simple goal; to make housing affordable enough for Chaffee County’s workforce; meaning teachers, firefighters, law enforcement, and shop owners and workers might be able to own their own homes; people who could afford housing at about 80 percent of the average median income (AMI).

Those modular homes were being built in two other factories in Nebraska, meaning all elements had to be transported here, something that the CEO of Fading West Development Charlie Chupp, has set out to change.
