USDA Home Loans Explained

Scott Wilson, Director of Single Family Housing Programs for the USDA, joins us on the SBL to demystify the USDA Home Loan programs. Loans through the USDA can provide underserved populations with the opportunity of homeownership. These loans can often be insufficient to purchase an existing home but can help people in rural areas build manufactured, modular or stick built houses, often in places where there are no pre-existing homes available on the market. With zero-down payment options, these loan programs truly allow more people to live their best lifestyle.

System Builds - Silicon Valley Meets Construction

Mike Rock, President of Construction at Katerra, joins us on SBL to share how his company is revolutionizing the construction world. Katerra is using the Henry Ford model of assembly lines to systemize how construction products are made. By applying this principle to manufacturing, technology, and materials, Katerra creates large, factory built pieces that can be assembled like legos, rather than each component being assembled by hand on-site. This methodology is improving quality, shortening building time and saving money!

The Ageless Home and Universal Design

Valerie Jurik-Henry, Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS), joins us on the SBL to share why homebuilders and architects need to be considering Ageless Housing concepts in their designs. From baby strollers to wheelchairs, shorter people to taller folk, houses serve the needs of many ages and abilities. Universal Design concepts like master bedrooms on the ground floor, open living spaces, and kitchens without upper cabinets benefit all walks of life. Building Ageless Homes not only adds convenience for the current homeowners but will also increase the resale value as the population ages and looks to buy homes with these features.

System Builds – The Evolution of Construction

Jason Davis, President of Colorado Modular Homes (CMH), joins us on the SBL to talk system builds. CMH has been producing high-quality custom modular homes since 2005\. Not only does CMH have off-site construction mastered, but they have also developed a four-step Road Home process to guide the homebuilder through the design and building process. This episode also explores how modular home construction is following a similar evolution to window systems. A hundred years ago, windows were built on-site during the construction process. Now, of course, window systems are delivered to the job site ready to be installed. Is stick built construction about to become obsolete, too?
