50 Years of Building Modular Homes

Can I buy a house for $5 down?

Nationwide Custom Homes Well...probably not now. But if you had asked us 50 years ago, we had a deal for you!

That's Right: 50 Years Ago - 1959

Nationwide Custom Homes Alaska and Hawaii became our 49th and 50th States. A first class stamp cost 4 cents. And Nationwide opened for business. We sold a home to Willie Martin - allowing him to trade up from this:

To a new Nationwide home

Nationwide Custom Homes For 71 monthly payments of $46.45, Willie bought a home for his family and Nationwide built the first of nearly 35,000 homes. While we started out building kit homes, in 1969 we started our systems-built product lines and have never looked back.

Nationwide Custom Homes By the early 80's, we were one of the largest builders of apartments and condominiums in the United States as well as a high volume producer of single-family homes. By 1995 we'd built our 20,000th home. Over time, we added factories in North Carolina and Georgia to assist our main facilities in Martinsville, Virginia. This accelerated the pace of production, bringing us to our 30,000th home in 2003. We are now approaching our 35,000th home.

What Customers are Saying About Our Custom Homes

"On Sunday, January 4th, Steve and I lost our home and all its contents to a chimney fire. A month later, after going through all the roller coaster emotions related to the disaster, we found ourselves in a car with our friends, Valery and Jeff. They were taking us to Williamsburg Square in Frazeysburg, Ohio to look at factory crafted houses. Truly, Steve and I were not too sure about nontraditional stick built houses, but we tried to be open minded.

After a tour of the onsite houses, agent Scott Richards showed us the rendition of a Nationwide Custom house, the Haywood II. Steve and I looked at each other and said “we could live in this one”, as we were so impressed with it.

A few weeks later, we met with Mark Kelly at the Nationwide Design Center in Jeffersonville, Ohio. Mark spent hours showing us the many features and choices available to us from the outside siding to the inside door knobs. He encouraged us to travel to Martinsville, VA to see the factory and our new house.

On June 5th, we met with Tommy Rakes who guided us through the Virginia factory; then we saw our house. We were so impressed with both!!

The big day finally arrived; June 18th, our house was set on our basement foundation and on August 20th, we slept in our beautiful new Nationwide “home”.

It was an amazing experience, thanks Williamsburg Square and Nationwide Custom Homes for building our house, while we healed emotionally and rebuilt our “home”. "
