The New Commodore Homes, LLC

As of the close of business on Friday September 24, we begin the next phase of our long history. With roots dating to 1952, Barry Shein acquired the company in 1990 and built one of the most respected businesses in offsite construction. With the sale of the business now finalized, we are thrilled to be part of Cavco Industries, Inc. Our 1200 people will become part of a successful, growing public company with similar values and great leadership. We have changed our name to Commodore Homes LLC, but will remain focused on being a preferred partner for our builders, retailers, and communities. We consider it a privilege to work with so many great customers, and look forward to a long and successful future.

The Casita!

Love the concept of a tiny home, but want more space?
Most tiny homes are between 400-100sq, but the Casita is double that!
Produced by Manorwood Homes comes this economical two story modular home in two variations: Casita 1 & 2, consisting between approx. 1,070- 1,549sq.

The Casita offers more space to move around and live without tight constraints than a traditional tiny home. This means you’re free to furnish your home without feeling cluttered. While space is so important, there are other amazing benefits to owning a smaller home: being environment-friendly, energy efficient, and less space means less to clean.

So there you have it- the Casita allows you to save money on utilities and help the environment, all while enjoying your perfectly sized home!

Lumber Costs Skyrocket

As the price of lumber rises, so does the market value of the average new multifamily home. According to Random Lengths, there has been a 130% increase since mid-April, which translates to over $6K in market value as of August 21st, 2020.

Prices continue to rise even after stats are ran.

‘The price of the home to the ultimate buyer has gone up by even somewhat more than this, due to factors such as interest on construction loans, brokers’ fees, and margins required to attract capital to residential construction and get construction loans underwritten. For items such as lumber that are purchased and used throughout the construction process, NAHB has estimated that the buyer’s price will increase by an additional 19.2%’
