The manufactured housing industry has been a part of America's home ownership dream since the early 1900's. Sears and Roebuck was one of the early pioneers of the pre-cut idea. in America. Pacific Modern Homes, Inc. (PMHI), was one of the first in California. The concept of pre-cutting and pre-packaging building components and materials has helped many contractors and owner-builders complete their projects with cost savings and in much less time then with traditional "stick building" procedures.

We at PMHI have packaged over 16,000 homes worldwide. In addition, we have packaged numerous apartments and light commercial buildings, from restrooms to fire stations, to a court house annex. We have worked successfully with contractors and developers throughout the world and would welcome the opportunity to work with you. Our years of experience, quality products, and the additional services we provide, assure you of a satisfied building experience.

Our most economical and practical standard plans for the true owner-builder are called Signature Series Plans.  If our standard plans do not meet your needs. Or, if time and cost are not your prime consideration factor, our Drafting Service can modify any Signature Series Plan  to meet your needs. If you prefer, we can work with you to develop a truly "custom" home from your ideas, sketches, and dreams, such as the home pictured above. All plans are available in either Metric or Imperial dimensions.

Upon completion of your plans, our Estimating Department will prepare a computer-generated quotation for your specific PMHI package.

Each PMHI home, barn, or garage package begins with the exterior and interior walls being designed by computer.


Then, the walls are pre-framed in sections or panels per the current Uniform Building Code (UBC) in our factory.



Each wall panel is numbered and identified by number on the panel plans included with every package. This insures fast and efficient erection of the package shell on you subfloor or slab foundation.


All roof trusses are also computer designed and engineered for your specific plan and roof load requirements. The truss webs and chords are then cut on our new computer controlled Alpine Linear Saw. Not only are all cuts precisely made, the computer optimizes the use of the materials for minimum waste too!


Next, the trusses are fabricated on new state-of-the-art layout tables. The Alpine truss plates are pressed while the chords and webs are held in jigs to assure proper alignment and the uniformity of adjacent trusses.

We also provide rafter roof systems where trusses will not work or are not desired.

All materials are neatly bundled and keyed to the shipping list for easy identification.

Our floors feature I-Joists and Engineered Wood beams.

Because the I-Joists and beams are manufactured to resist the effects of temperature and moisture, they will not change shape.

All of us at PMHI are proud of our heritage and our reputation as a leader in the industrialized housing industry, both domestically and internationally. We have established new traditions and standards for packaged housing that following generations will strive to achieve.
