Here’s an interesting question for you: When
you buy a car, do you have it assembled in your yard, out in the elements, for

with many months of big machinery rumbling about your yard, potentially
damaging your property and certainly lacking in efficiency. Imagine your engine

Design and style aren't compromised
Ritz-Craft’s homes are built stronger than traditional on-site constructed homes.
Constructed in a controlled environment in their state-of-the-art factory,
missing or damaged materials and weather delays are not a factor. The result is
a precision-constructed, energy efficient home, ready to occupy in 6-10 weeks,
as opposed to six months to a year, with traditional stick framing.
Ritz-Craft Custom Homes offers home buyers numerous floor plans from which to
choose and each plan can be customized to match your dream home design. Their
modular system enables you to add living space quickly and easily so as your
family grows, your home can easily grow with you. All Ritz-Craft homes are
built in a controlled environment, in a specially designed facility. This results
in significant waste reduction, and a home with a much lower carbon footprint
than that of a typical site-built home. There is even less fuel used by crews
commuting to job sites each day for up to a year to erect an on-site
Modular building is increasing exponentially
throughout the country, particularly on the East Coast. US Census Data shows
that modular homes have a strong presence in the Northeast; accounting for over
10% of home completions.
