Santa Rosa Veterans Hall

A nearly complete Veterans Village in Santa Rosa, CA

This project came to Modular Lifestyles from Community Housing of Sonoma County  ( project manager. The thought was as a Tiny House RV Classification community project of 14 units for Veterans in Wheelchairs. We design and built a factory built prototype Tiny House “On Wheels” as a ADA/ADU for their consideration. We were not chosen for the RFP however this unit is now approved in the City of San Luis Obispo parcels for backyard living Seniors who are on Social Security and no hope for assistive living. The project photos show a Site Built community on a one acre commercial County location for affordable hosuing.

Greening Your Home and Community Click here to open up an article on Manufactured “green” home communities by Steve Lefler Modular Lifestyles – Helping The Community Get To The Future Now!

In the last several years, the manufactured housing industry has taken big strides to copy traditional “stick built” homes. Today, a manufactured home is designed and constructed in such a way that one cannot tell the difference between it and stick built home, other than its location. Even then, someone would be hard pressed to identify a manufactured home if it suddenly appears in a tear down or remodel scenario on your neighbor’s lot. Modular Lifestyles, Inc. is doing this kind of work.

When the City of Newport Beach Fire and Marine Department approached Modular Lifestyles for an EMT housing need for the their fire station in Corona De Mar, Ca., they jumped at the chance. The project, originally to be scheduled for review and bidding by stick built contractors, was a cost prohibitive challenge but one that was gladly undertaken on behalf of the brave men and women of the Firehouse. Modular saved the Department many thousands of dollars by utilizing a modern manufactured home product. The results were terrific!

Wind Energy can be matched to the home where applicable to your region, climate zone and wind consistency
