Sonoma County Wildfire Residents turn to Modular

When construction workers raised the white plastic sheet to reveal a portion of his new house, Art Ramirez had to take a closer look.

Clad in a white hard hat, Ramirez strode across his cleared dirt lot to peer inside his nearly finished kitchen, with its white cabinets, quartz countertop and stainless steel refrigerator already in place. The room belongs to one of two 50-foot-long sections of his factory-built house, each part of which was lowered by crane last week onto a concrete foundation on Ramirez’s property in Coffey Park.

Ramirez, a registered nurse, said he’d been thinking for months about the idea of a house assembled in a factory near Sacramento and trucked over in two 30,000-pound sections to Santa Rosa. But, he said, “to see the actual product on site is just crazy.”

The three-bedroom, Craftsman-style house is the first installed in the North Bay burn areas by Santa Rosa-based HybridCore Homes. The houses combine the benefits of factory and on-site construction, company officials said, and can be completed at prices that compare with or beat those of standard, “stick-built” residences.
