Our Worker Housing is stick framed and built on site. Journeyman carpenters and tradesman take pride in constructing this housing with the same care as Simplicity’s single family homes.  Our inclusive features are considered upgrades when compared to manufactured or modular housing options.  Multiple plans, customization options, efficient designs and exceptional durability due to the proven long lasting finishes results in Simplicity outperforming and outlasting the competition, season over season. When site costs such as strip footings, hold downs, skirting, stairs, etc. are added to the competitions base price the total cost per bed is effectively the same between Simplicity and a manufactured/modular home option.  However, a factory built option with inferior products that are transported over miles of highways and numerous pot holes cannot compare to Simplicity’s stick framed, built on site solution.
