Nationwide Homes launched its Renew Avenue Collection of modular homes at the International Builders' Show (IBS) 2011 held January 12-15 in Orlando, Florida. Renew Avenue homes are designed specifically for narrow-lot, urban infill projects for single and multiple lots, as well as for community redevelopment demand.
Significant experience in urban projects led Nationwide Homes to develop the infill-driven Renew Avenue Collection introduced at IBS, the housing industry's largest annual trade show and exhibition. During 2010, the company was involved in several major infill projects throughout the Southeast, including Virginia, Florida, Georgia and Louisiana.
"Nationwide's modular construction is perfect for infill projects," said Andy Miller, president of Nationwide Homes. "Our ability to set the homes at the site for final completion means minimal disturbance to an existing neighborhood environment, a shorter on-site construction timeframe and enhanced site security benefits."
Showcased at the IBS Show Village was the versatile Redwood Shores, shown with its Coastal Façade version, the Sea Breeze. The home's' flexible design extends its application to coastal regions, the mountains or general urban regions.
The entire Renew Avenue Collection makes the most of narrow-lot placement. An increasing number of urban infill projects are taking advantage of modular construction. The home model that was displayed at the IBS Show Village captured the look and feel of coastal Florida and can be modified to fit urban landscapes across the Gulf Coast, the Midwest and older, East Coast regions. The two-story modular home has many sought-after amenities and a pleasing, open design. Built with Nationwide's HiPerformance Construction processes, the Redwood Shores features an abundance of energy-efficient features that will enable it to be certified Green and Energy Star.

"Dear Nationwide Custom Homes,
We would like to share with you our exceptional experience as repeat (two-time) Nationwide customers.
Eight years ago, we had the pleasure and satisfaction of building our first Nationwide Home with an independent builder. It was a recent job relocation that placed us in the position of having to sell that home and needing to acquire a new home and we knew that we wanted to build again. Although, we did consider the competition and explored our options with other builders, it was our first meeting with the staff at the Smith Mountain Lake office that made such an indelible impression that we were confident that Nationwide was the best and only choice to build our home again. The personal attention that Len Patridge, Linda DePierro, and Dawn Lane gave our family of 8 (2 parents and 6 kids) was remarkable. Having to drive over an hour to get to the office, we arrived less than an hour from closing. Without regard for time or consideration for their own personal commitments or obligations, they reached out to our family and patiently spent two hours listening to our needs and working with us to come up with a home that fit our family and budget. It was their knowledge, experience, and insight that guided and assured us that we would indeed have the dream home that we were looking for.
In addition, the commitment and devotion they brought to building our home made us realize and know that we weren’t just another “job” to them, but it made us constantly aware that they were working solely on our behalf and in our best interest. We were living in our camper during our entire homebuilding process, and Darrell Craig, our construction manager, made it his personal mission to get our family into “permanent” housing and in our home for the holidays. His coordinated efforts and diligence got us into our new home in less than two months from the time they broke ground.
Truly, the people who work from the Smith Mountain Lake office are extraordinary people and are a rare find. They are the type of people who represent companies well, give their companies a good reputation, and make their companies great. And when individuals like them, go above and beyond the call of duty and go the “extra mile” to get the job done, it is our personal belief that it would be inexcusable not to commend them and “give honor to whom honor is due.” We will forever consider the staff and contractors at the SML office our family friends, and should the need arise to build yet another home, there is no doubt to whom we will turn to get the job done.
We are also taking the liberty of sending a picture of our new Nationwide Home, and it is our hope that you would take comfort in knowing that we have been well served by your company representatives at Smith Mountain Lake.
Sincerely, The Harris Family "
