Your Green Builder

Green Manufactured & Modular Homes

A Jacobsen Home is naturally Green due to the way our homes are constructed. Our controlled building environment allows us to store materials inside out of the weather, reducing moisture content in the lumber and other susceptible building materials we use. Our construction methods also produce less waste, reduces labor cost, and conserves energy. We recycle products to prevent the waste of potentially useful materials, which reduces the consumption of fresh raw materials and reduces Energy consumed in a conventional waste disposal. This all adds to the lowering of Greenhouse gases.
