50 Years of Building Modular Homes

Can I buy a house for $5 down?

Nationwide Custom Homes Well...probably not now. But if you had asked us 50 years ago, we had a deal for you!

That's Right: 50 Years Ago - 1959

Nationwide Custom Homes Alaska and Hawaii became our 49th and 50th States. A first class stamp cost 4 cents. And Nationwide opened for business. We sold a home to Willie Martin - allowing him to trade up from this:

To a new Nationwide home

Nationwide Custom Homes For 71 monthly payments of $46.45, Willie bought a home for his family and Nationwide built the first of nearly 35,000 homes. While we started out building kit homes, in 1969 we started our systems-built product lines and have never looked back.

Nationwide Custom Homes By the early 80's, we were one of the largest builders of apartments and condominiums in the United States as well as a high volume producer of single-family homes. By 1995 we'd built our 20,000th home. Over time, we added factories in North Carolina and Georgia to assist our main facilities in Martinsville, Virginia. This accelerated the pace of production, bringing us to our 30,000th home in 2003. We are now approaching our 35,000th home.

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. "
