"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.
