Patriot Homes teams up with Lifestylist® Suzanne Felber to win National Design Awards.

Patriot Homes has always prided itself on being a leader in new housing trends

The top leaders of the housing industry gathered recently in Las Vegas, Nevada to honor the best in housing designs at the 2006 National Congress and Expo. Patriot Homes was awarded 2 of the top honors by their peers for Top Concept Modular Home – 1800 sq. ft or less and Top Production Modular Home – 1800 sq. ft or less.

“The Woodlake” home was the Top Production Modular Home and is built by Patriot’s EnergyMate division in Elkhart, Indiana. Homes built by this building center include a 14 ft wide 2 story home that can be delivered and secure in one day which makes it perfect for narrow city lots where security might be an issue. The winning Woodlake model responds perfectly for the work to be done in urban infill areas and the Gulf Coast Region, with an inviting elevation, full-length covered porch, tray and coiffer ceilings, and three-sided fireplace. The home embraces the lifestyle trend of entertaining at home.

Architect John Carricarte of Patriot Homes stated that "using manufactured and modular homes to rebuild our cities and areas that were devasted by Hurricane Katrina just makes sense. Using factory built homes enables a developer to quickly go into an area and provide well built homes in a short period of time. When there is not an available local work force, this can make the difference of a community being rebuilt in months instead of years".

Patriot Homes of Texas is the builder of the Top Concept Modular Home -- “The Texas Star”. This is a Hybrid Home and is ideal for what the new Urban Dwellers are looking for in their environments. The clean-lined contemporary style of architecture is a step forward for factory-built housing. The SIP roof construction, with a standing seam metal finish and the corrugated steel siding definitely adds a unique look and finish to the homes. This home is especially well suited for the desert climates in New Mexico and Arizona that Patriot Homes of Texas is very active in.

“Patriot Homes has always prided itself on being a leader in new housing trends” stated Lifestylist® Suzanne Felber "and these homes are great examples of why developers and city planners are coming to Patriot for help in rebuilding their urban areas". Patriot Homes is one of the few modular home builders to win design excellence awards in The National Association of Homebuilders National Awards as well as the current awards.
