ABC 7 is doing a periodic series of reports dubbed “Building a Better Bay Area.” Their promo said in part that “All this week we are looking at the Bay Area’s housing crisis,” speaking of San Francisco Bay, that covers cities like Oakland, CA.
Among their reports last week was one that spotlighted Blu Homes, a modular builder periodically spotlighted previously on MHProNews.
Their video report on a homeowner that turned to Blu Homes and touted the savings and quality is posted below.
Per the ABC 7 report, “Blu fills a gap. We’ve never had this kind of demand for labor, so really the need for prefab homes is, really a need for homes,” said Zephan McMinn, CEO of Blu Homes in Vallejo. McMinn said they build about 400 to 500 homes a year.
Lauri and Tim Dorman’s home from Glen Ellen were among those who lost a home to disastrous fires, but could not justify the cost of site building. They are featured in the ABC 7 video above.
One might wonder why the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) isn’t actively and measurably working with such metro media outlets to establish numerous reports that would accurately tell the manufactured housing industry’s story accurately?
There is a hunger for affordable housing, and yet HUD Code manufactured homes are arguably being inadequately supported by the only national post-production trade association.

Manufactured Housing Industry’s Opportunities and Obstacles – Executive Summary – Masthead L. A. ‘Tony’ Kovach
Food, water, clothing, and shelter. These describe the 4 essentials for human life. Additionally, some mention living-related items such as – health, sanitation, transportation, education/information, faith, technology, and entertainment – not necessarily in that order of importance. Professional or investment opportunities exit by serving one or more of those needs properly.
