At New England Homes we’ve built over 15,000 homes using advanced modular home building technology.

In the beginning New England homes was founded by the Donahue family, who based their company on well defined values, integrity and a passion for serving our customers, and that model hasn’t changed.

The fact that we are committed to making customer satisfaction our number one priority is evident in our long list of repeat clients. We have over 15,000 satisfied homeowners, each enjoying modular home building technology. We adhere to the highest quality building standards for every custom building that leaves our facility, with the New England Homes stamp of approval.

New England Homes is the Northeast’s oldest modular home manufacturer.

Since opening in 1961, technology and products have evolved and adapted with new materials and state-of-the-art building techniques which deserved attention. In order to ensure lasting quality and efficient processes, we’ve always maintained rigid review of emerging technologies before implementing them into our homes. From the early days of panelized structures – to the addition, in 1968, of modular designed buildings, we’ve continued to demonstrate how effective and often superior modular housing can be to on-site construction.
