How Jacobsen Homes are Built
Jacobsen Homes is recognized as the most innovative leader in Florida manufactured housing, using the most advanced components and technology available in manufactured home construction.
Every Jacobsen Home is designed by our highly-trained, in-house engineering staff. Jacobsen Homes pioneered the use of Auto-CAD in the Florida manufactured home industry; this is one of the most sophisticated computer aided design and drafting programs available. This ensures that every individual floor plan will be executed with precision. No other home on the market is “Engineered For People” like a Jacobsen Home.
We take pride in bringing our customers the best home available, in the area of your choosing, at an affordable price. Read below to learn more about our modular, manufactured and mobile home construction.
