2009 Builder Hall of Fame Inductees

Nationwide Custom Homes


Nationwide Custom Homes, a division of national systems-built home manufacturer Palm Harbor Homes, has named four builders as inductees into its Builder Hall of Fame which honors approved independent builders who have been with Nationwide for 12 years or more.


The Hall of Fame recipients include husband and wife team Alfred and Donna Belka, owners of Tidewater Modular Homes in Virginia Beach, VA, Eddie McConnell Jr., president of W.E. McConnell & Sons, Inc., in Gate City, VA, Lloyd Dilday, owner and president of Chesapeake Homes in Lively, VA and Wayne and Alice Turner, owners of Heartland Home Developers Inc. in Rockmart, GA.  In addition to the 12 years as a Nationwide approved independent builder, inductees had to attain $4 million in sales and demonstrate support and involvement in the modular industry.


Nationwide Custom Homes began the Hall of Fame in 1994.  This year's inductees received their awards at Nationwide's 50th anniversary celebration and open house in Martinsville, VA, on April 24. 


"This is a professional milestone for each of the builders who were honored as an inductee into the Hall of Fame and a partnership milestone for Nationwide," said Nationwide President Andy Miller. "These builders have been consistently strong, successful partners to Nationwide and share in our vision to provide home buyers with the home they want, built the modular way."

What Customers are Saying About Our Custom Homes

"We are pleased to say recently we had a home built by Nationwide Homes Smith Mountain Lake. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the building of our home. It was a totally great experience from the start to the finish.

Our first encounter with Skeeter at the Smith Mountain Lake office was professional and very positive. He is very knowledgeable and helped us put together a home that we will be very comfortable in for many years. The "Whitfiled" model with a raised roof and a 2 car garage was worked out flawlessly by Skeeter's expertise in home design, it is beautiful. He spent many hours with us to make sure we were satisfied with the design. When the building began, we were informed as to the progress every step of the way by Skeeter.

Nationwide's employees on the job site were very responsive to our questions, needs and wants. The Team is dependable, hard-working, committed to detail and courteous. Their quality of workmanship is excellent. Our entire experience with the Nationwide team could not have been better. We would certainly recommend Nationwide Homes to anyone looking to build. "
