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.

"Jason and Barb Landrum would like to thank everyone at Nationwide Homes for all the work they have done to put us in a new home. On October 5th, 2009 we were awoke to the sound of a smoke detector and the smell of smoke. Escaping only with our pet Yorkie "BANDIT". In the moments following we found ourselves homeless and unsure of were we would be from that point on.
In the days following we reviewed all our options such as trailers, double-wides, or rebuilding our burnt house. With nothing in hand from insurance we found out about modular homes. A friend told us about a factory in Zanesville, Ohio. After arriving at the plant we learned they were closed. While turning around we saw a 12" x 12" sign that said modular homes. After calling we found out it was Nationwide Homes. The price of their modular homes was our of range for what we could afford. Returning back home we received a phone call from a gentleman by the name of Mitch Salem. After telling him about our situation, Mr. Salem told us he thought he could help. And help he did. For about 2 weeks we stayed in contact going over options and plans. Finally, one Sunday afternoon he came over and showed us a plan that not only could we afford, but they would have us in possibly by Christmas 2009. Within six weeks on our house burning the work had begun.
What Nationwide has done goes way beyond business. We were total strangers before the fire, but after the smoke cleared, we will be friends for life."
Building with modular construction allows homes to be delivered up to 90% complete and built in one-third the time.
