I initially googled manufactured home companies in the area and came across Ma Williams. I then went to the website and it was very informative, I probably would have never called if it wouldn't have been. I also liked that it was family owned. I called and spoke to Tony, he did an awesome job in answering all my questions and provided me with things I requested.

Ma Williams was recommended to us. LaVon was there to greet us. She guided us through the order and build process. Change this, add that... everything down to the last detail with patience and professionalism. Thanks so much to the crew at Ma Williams. We recommend them to anyone who will listen.
William F. – Hemet, CA
This office is a great example of customer service. I felt very welcome and all of my questions were answered. We spoke with Marie and she was very friendly and very willing to break down the information for us. At this moment we are planning on returning to begin the process. She was honest, straight forward, and to the point. We were not intimidated, not once by the numbers, and we are excited to do this in due time.

Lavon, the salesperson we spoke with, was beyond informative. We received everything needed for right now.

Earlier this year, new laws were passed in California to promote the development of accessory dwelling units, or ADUs. But even without this new legislation, many homeowners and landowners have already explored the possibilities of adding a second living unit on their property.
Many of these would be classified as manufactured homes, and Ma Williams can help you find one with the right size and amenities to fit your needs.
Let’s take a closer look at this subject.
A: They go by many names: backyard homes, granny flats, secondary units – but all of them refer to the same thing: a smaller home located on the same property as a larger residential structure.
A: Most ADUs are approximately 1,200-1,500 square feet. But the local building department will be the agency who determines the exact size allowed on your lot.
A: They provide a way for larger families to live close together, without tripping over each other in one home. An accessory dwelling unit may be built for parents, grandparents, in-laws, or young adults returning from college who can’t afford a place of their own.
A: Absolutely! Many people supplement their income with an ADU on their property that collects rent from tenants every month. However, they cannot be bought or sold separately.
A: The key benefit is value: a manufactured or modular home used as an ADU can be built at a far lower cost, plus you already own the land so that investment is avoided as well. However, lower cost doesn’t mean cheap: an array of design, siding and roofing options are available, and the models offered by Ma Williams feature the same upscale cabinet, countertop and floor covering options as our larger manufactured home models.
A: Some ADUs are tiny houses, but some are much larger. Also, keep in mind that not all Tiny Homes (as seen on home improvement channels) are built to Federal, State or Local codes which can be a problem when trying to obtain permitting to place an ADU on your property long term.
A: The new laws now allow ADUs to be built in all zoning districts that allow single-family uses, and allow these dwellings to be built concurrently with a single-family home. However, city or county ordinances may still vary.
