"It was great to meet you and Bill Jr. yesterday at the Nationwide modular home plant. It was our incredible luck to arrive on a day that you were there! We both appreciate the time you spent with us to educate us on Nationwide's product and your building services. The plant tour was impressive, I can't think of a better way to build a house. We were both surprised at the quality of the standard hardware, cabinets, materials etc. Once we are able to digest all the information we gathered on our trip, we will have a better idea of how to move forward.
