Thank you Abe Ferreira of US Modular and the Skyline Homes crew for opening up the factory and providing such a wonderful opportunity for prospective clients. Everyone involved in the process; beginning with checking in, ending with the “real world” walk through of a complete model and all points between, was courteous, professional and clearly invested in their ability to provide a comfortable, safe and quality product. Expecially impressive was that the needs of those of us participating in the tour seem to have been predicted. There was someone to answer every question from price difference to inspection protocol to financing. Abe even had names of Realtors in my area. True, one stop shopping!
US Modular (USM) achieved our dream house. Recently retired, we wanted a beautiful, spacious and functional home to live out the rest of our lives overlooking San Diego’s Mission Bay. We were very specific and demanding. We wanted an environmentally friendly and ADA compliant home that takes full advantage of the Mission Bay view and the San Diego coastal climate. The wide open floor plan we proposed however entailed connecting large indoor living areas with large outdoor living areas which presented some serious engineering obstacles. USM graciously offered several cost saving alternatives that we appreciated but they did not achieve the spacious feeling we desired. At their own expense, USM researched alternative structural materials and engineering designs and came up with a means that accomplished all of our objectives. We are absolutely thrilled with the final design and look forward to living out the rest of our lives in the dream house we envisioned.
Thank you US Modular.

Dear Abe and Todd,
I’m writing you this morning, scratching my head and thinking, “what the heck did I just experience”. I find myself, three days later, replaying October 9, 2012 in my mind and thinking “how was USModular able to make this happen”.
When arriving at the lot Tuesday morning and seeing an enormous crane in my front yard with only a couple of feet of room on either end, I thought “there is no way this can work”! With a guy-wire running diagonal from the front of my yard to a vertical pole, trees branches dangling in every direction and power lines bordering our property, the only other obstacle left would be snow in L.A.
To my complete amazement, the crane swung the first module into place as easy as my son playing with his Lego set. The day ran smoothly, and instead of our house being a construction site, it soon became a neighborhood block party. Neighbors, friends, business people and onlookers came in waves and I distinctly noticed that people quickly became entranced and could not take their eyes off of what they were seeing. Instead of staying for a couple of minutes, onlookers were pulling out their cell phones and calling their friends and family saying “you have to see this”. People that were not familiar with modular building got an insightful sneak peak and have now become believers.
I must have made 10 calls to Kevin on Tuesday, while he was performing an emergency surgery, to gage when he would be done so he would not miss this experience. His nurse, who relayed one of my messages, said “your wife said your house is being unloaded”. She quickly caught herself and said “wait, what?!”
In all, what I thought was going to be an anxious day turned out to be one of the most exciting days of my life and I owe it all to USModular. Your hard work, expertise and attention to detail is very much appreciated. I’m looking forward to the day I get the keys to my new home and will continue to tell people of what unfolded just days ago.
Prefab Makes Dream Home Come True
Working with US Modular, Inc. has been a great process so far. Abe Ferreira, the CEO, took our project on himself. He took the time during the Thanksgiving holiday to meet with us on our land and discuss the process with us in detail for over an hour. Abe has been very responsive every time we call with questions and absolutely patient with us during the design phase of building our house. It is a big deal for anybody to take on a project like building a house. It can be very stressful and anxious at times but Abe has been be able to put our minds at ease and reassure us every step of the way. Abe has been an answer to our prayers and we are so excited to start the next step of building our dream home with US Modular!

Testimonial from GAF Materials Corporation
When GAF was fortunate enough to be included in a special project with the Ellen DeGeneres Show to build a home for a deserving family, we knew we had to make sure everything went smoothly. We had an extremely limited amount of time to first demo an existing house and then build a new, custom house, which would all be documented on the most popular daytime TV show. We met with several different builders and contractors, and after talking with the team at US Modular, our confidence was placed solidly with them.
We had about the time that it would take most people to renovate a kitchen to build an entire house. US Modular worked closely with the city to expedite the process and move permits along, all while carefully managing our expectations. They simultaneously worked with us to determine the best floorplans, details, and design to match the look of the neighborhood and the wants of the homeowner.
For months we were in contact all day every day – nights, weekends – to ensure we met the strict deadlines for the TV show. Everyone went above and beyond, including working on including appliances and landscaping, as well as other things beyond the scope of our arrangement. The commitment level of everyone involved was truly impressive. The fact that a beautiful, high quality home was installed was no surprise after working with the US Modular team; I would expect nothing less. I do look forward to a longstanding relationship between GAF and US Modular in the future.

Testimonial from Randy and Adrienne Trim
We would like to take a moment to thank you for all that you have done to complete our home project. You assisted us when our first contractor left us hanging without much hope of finishing this project, and we cannot thank you enough. Your company even referred us to an attorney that assisted us in saving the large down payment we had made on our modular home when we thought for sure that money would be lost to us. The speed in which you stepped in to assist us is so much appreciated.
Working with your company was amazingly easy. Your staff, namely Jack and Mike were so pleasant and helpful. They kept us informed of any bumps in the road, of which there were very few, and worked quickly to resolve those little problems. They truly are an asset to you.
Todd, it has been a great pleasure working with you. You kept us informed of all that was happening and were patient when waiting for the county and/or utility companies to do what they needed to do, even though it has dragged this project out a little longer than was anticipated. With any project like this, things are bound to come up unexpectedly. Any change orders that had to be done you provided us quickly and fairly. We really appreciate you stepping in with the electrical panels that were not part of the original contract. We were very pleased with the end result.
Please accept our sincerest thanks and gratitude for all you have done. We wish you all the best with your future projects.

Testimonial from Marcus Conway-New Homeowner
Winner of “12 Days of Giveaways” on The Ellen Show
How does a person thank someone for a life changing gift? How does a person not become so overwhelmed by the enormity of it all and try to get back to a “normal” life? When my family and I left Ellen’s show in January, I kept asking myself “what did we do to deserve such an awesome gift?” My wife Susie and I have grown numb with the question, so much so that we’ve had to put that question aside and came up with another equally daunting one; “How do we pay this gift forward?”
As I told everyone on the night after the reveal, I could thank everyone 1,000 times a day for 1,000 years and it still would not be enough. This house that you built for us is beyond our wildest imaginations. It’s so beautiful. It’s nice for us to be able to have our family over without having to worry about there being enough room for everyone.
We’ve been in the house for a little more than a month now and it still feels like we are on vacation. We still see people driving by, getting a glimpse of the house. It’s like we’re celebrities.
I must tell you that Alyssa Hall was a God send. She was in constant contact with us, either texting or calling. She’s the type of person that once you meet her, you are happy that they are a part of your life. Alyssa answered all of our silly questions, quieted our fears, and was there when we needed her. I feel so fortunate to have had her in our lives.
I will say that at first I was a little apprehensive about the house being built with Off-Site Modular Construction. But then I visited USModular’s website and after talking to Abe Ferreira, one of the Principals at USModular, I felt more at ease. It’s crazy how this house turned out. The house is very open on the inside without losing that warm homey feeling. It’s like you can get lost in the house but don’t mind because it feels like home (I don’t know if I’m really making sense here). The hardwood floors, the windows, the counter tops, are all so much more than we could have wished for. On the outside, they built a porch to die for. Brick accents and a tiled base blend into the landscaping that they did. And to top it off they put in a garage window that overlooks a waterfall/fountain and the wonderful array of flowers and trees. To give you an idea of their attention to detail, when our old house was demolished, one of the foremen found a ring that I had lost. The ring was given to me by my commander after I graduated from the Air Force leadership school and has sentimental value. I can’t begin to tell you how happy we are with this house.
My wife and I have always been involved with our community. However we feel that this is not enough, so we will be donating some of our time and energy to a local food bank as a way of giving back. Please let everyone know that you have changed all of our lives and we will always have you and yours in our prayers.
Marcus Conway and family
