Our Review

Editor's Rating
Editorial ReviewHoopa Modular homes are built on the Hoopa Indian Reservation. It was started to bring affordable housing job opportunities to the Indian reservation. This is a very new manufacturer and it has not yet established itself. It would be nice for them to succeed but when you are looking to use a large percentage of your life savings to buy a home it is best to choose a manufacturer that has a proven track record of satisfied customers. At this time we feel very uncomfortable with them and have many doubts.

Personal Reviews of Hoopa Modular Building

Isaac Lassiter from San Diego
To "David from Salyer"
You are incorrect that I am very unhappy because Hoopa started building my home and then wouldn't give me my money back.
Our company gave Hoopa a deposit to produce and deliver a 3rd party set of stamped modular plans, and Hoopa did not deliver the plans and refused to take our call. They built nothing. They said in no uncertain terms that there was nothing we could do about it.
I did not overlook an "important detail", and if Hoopa had begun building our home we would have had no reason to get any money back. But Hoopa took our money and delivered nothing, so the least they could do for the 1 year of waiting for the plans they repeatedly promised would be to refund our money. Our client eventually lost over $200,000 on this project because of Hoopa's failings, yet Hoopa refused to return a $3,000 deposit. This is a company run by poor business-people who have no legal obligation to provide you with a product after you give them your money.
Because you have no legal recourse with Hoopa because they are owned by the Hoopa tribal authority, their "Contract" is not worth the paper it is printed on. There is nothing you can do if they decide to rip you off, so you might as well do the deal on a handshake and just hope for the best.

My name is David and I own a Holly. I had this home customized to my liking. There are things that any new company has problems with when they begin. I am not getting any money for doing this opinion either. Those things are: the homes are not 90% done when they leave the factory and they are more like 70% done. There is tons of siding that needs to be done along with hooking up plumbing, and electrical connections. There is a lot of interior finish work that needs to be done as well. Jack Chizum is Xontah builders Sales rep and he does not finish all of the things he needs to do and he does not follow through with what he "says" he is going to do. Xontah needs a sales team instead of one person doing all there sales and they need a Sales team that works closely with the builders like Bill Lavine. Bill is very knowledgeable guy and works with the buyer to get the home exactly where the customer wants the home. Jack is with you until you give him the last check and then he is done with you. I still havent wrote a letter to Loren Norton the person most directly in charge of Xontah Builders about Jack, but it is forthcoming. Jack never finished my warranty stuff and I have been living in my home since April 10, 2009. The home is wonderful, but with any new home you still have some bugs to work out. As for the guy in San Diego. He is very mad at Xontah builders, but it is his own fault. He did not get his down payment back because there is no refund on the home when Xontah begins building the home and the down payment is non-refundable. I read this in my contract, and perhaps he over looked this important detail. Should anyone have any questions about Xontah builders and the home they build, please dont hesitate to email me at david_b26@hotmail.com.

Please review this information prior to purchasing a home from Hoopa Modular Building Enterprise, or from Xontah Builders, the new name that they go by. Because Hoopa Modular is owned by the Hoopa Indian nation, it is not possible to bring legal action against them in the case that they do not deliver the product that you ordered, or if they simply decide to abscond with your money. If they build you a house that literally falls apart the day it arrives on-site, you can not bring any legal action against them.

Consider this - would you enter into any contract where the other party could take all of your money and give you nothing, and then you had no right to take legal action to recover that money? This would not be wise in any business arena, and certainly not when you are a builder trying to buy homes and sell them for profit. If you are a homeowner, it is the same problem. Your builder could give them your money to build a home, but then if Hoopa goes out of business or if they simply on a whim decide not to build you anything nor refund your money, then your builder can not do anything about it. Unless you feel 100% confident that you can recover the money out of whoever the builder/dealer is, do not buy a home from them if the supplier is Hoopa Modulur / Xontah Builders.

from: "Suing an Indian Tribe
Like other sovereign governments, tribes enjoy common law sovereign immunity and cannot be sued. Indian tribes are subject to suit only where Congress has unequivocally authorized the suit or the tribe has clearly waived its immunity. There is a strong presumption against waiver of tribal sovereign immunity.

The doctrine of sovereign immunity shields Indian tribes from:
* Monetary damages
* Declaratory relief (enforcement of contract rights)
* Injunctive relief"

This isn't just a legal discussion. After not being able to produce plans for two homes that we had on deposit, they refused to refund a deposit for a home that we made with them even though we chose to fully refund our clients deposit. After over 3 years, they still refuse to return our calls our our company's money.

It would be highly unwise to do business with this company.

Fritze Sexton from McKinleyville California
Very well built homes, excellent construction, I have set 17 of these homes.
