The Home Gallery


The Home Gallery offers unique contemporary designs under the manufactured HUD code. Manufactured homes are built to the same standards as traditional construction and are less expensive due to efficiencies in the factory building process. As the value of California land continues to appreciate, building a beautiful home for much less than a conventionally built house is a straightforward investment. With five designs to choose from, we offer customizable finishes and a simpler custom home building experience whether you are developing land, adding an additional dwelling (guest house or ADU), or recovering from a fire.

At The Home Gallery, we walk you through every step of new homeownership: from pre-construction and financing to ordering your home, delivery, and installation. We have confidence in our team and preferred subcontractors, and are committed to taking care of you throughout the process. Our homes are faster to build and permit as the structural plans are stamped in the factory. The Home Gallery ensures a simpler, more efficient way to build.

With over twenty years of experience working in housing and construction, The Home Gallery was born from a desire to specialize in contemporary manufactured homes. Our team is uniquely positioned to help you create the house of your dreams for a price that eclipses traditional, stick-built homes.
