Nationwide Homes Join ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition


Palm Harbor Homes, Inc.  and its wholly-owned modular home subsidiary, Nationwide Homes, Inc. ("Nationwide") today announced that they will be joining ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition for an upcoming build later in February. This will be the first time the popular television program has featured a home built with modular construction during its intense one-week build time. Although the name of the family and the location of the home site cannot be released until February 21, one of five deserving families in west central Georgia has been selected as the recipient for a new Nationwide modular home and a life changing event.

As long-time national builders of modular homes, Nationwide and Palm Harbor Homes are perfectly aligned to assist Extreme Makeover: Home Edition with this important, time-sensitive task. Building and delivering a high quality home with extreme customization in one week is a routine part of the job for this homebuilder. Because these homes are built in environmentally-protected building centers with constant quality checks and then transported to the final home site, rain and other weather delays do not impact the build schedule. This inherently green construction method and the other green features built into the home are expected to give the home both an ENERGY STAR qualification and the National Association of Home Builders Green Certification. This means that this home will have lower utility costs when compared to a typical home built to accepted state and local building standards.

Ron Powell, President of Manufacturing for Palm Harbor Homes, explained, "We love building homes for families, and having this opportunity to make a huge difference in the life of a deserving family is a special assignment for us. We are proud and excited to be the first modular company to work with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in their mission to improve the lives of families across our country. We are also grateful for the outpouring of generosity from our builders, sponsors, associates and many others who have already donated to this wonderful cause without even knowing the family."

What Customers are Saying About Our Custom Homes

"When we made the decision to build a modular home with Nationwide Custom Homes, it was probably the best decision we have jointly made in 50 years of marriage!! Nationwide came highly recommended from our daughter-in-law, Nicole, and she was 100% correct. The Smith Mountain Lake team of Len Partridge, Linda DePierro, and Dawn Lane took our wants and wishes, as vague as they were, and turned them into a most beautiful home that fulfilled our wishes to the utmost. Every time we look at it, it becomes more lovely and beautiful, and we are reminded just what a professional team can accomplish. The setting of the house on the foundation was an event to see and enjoy. Every person there had job to do and did it extremely well. The house arrived around 11:00, and by 6:00 it was set and weather proof, locked and safe. What an accomplishment!! During construction, Darrell Craig attended to us like we were his own children, and I guess in some ways, we were. He is the utmost in professionalism, showing devoted care and concern for us and our new home, making sure we were happy and the house was as near perfect as it could be made to be, while at the same time protecting the interests of Nationwide. All of the sub-contractors were real professionals and we enjoyed meeting each and every one and are appreciative of the excellent work they performed. THANKS Nationwide, for a job well done, quality-wise, professionally, and timely. "
