Our Review

Editor's Rating
Editorial ReviewFamily Built Homes formely known as Magnolia Homes is an solid builder of modular homes. They provide good value for entry level and mid range buyers. We wish they had more model floor plans but understand that 12 floors plan are enough of a starting point since most modular home buyers end up customizing their home plans. If you are an entry level or mid range home buyer FBH could be a good option for you. If you are close to their modular factory then you should consider make some time to visit.

Personal Reviews of Family Built Home/Magnolia Homes

Sandra Miller from Woodland Park, Co
We purchased our home in 1994, and love it. Need to replace kitchen cabinet doors and finding hard to find and more expensive than I thought they would be. Everyone wants to replace the whole cabinets. They are still in good shape, so just wanted to get the doors. Can you help me? Or perhaps send me to the manufacturer.

STEPHEN ANSELMO from Loveland Colo. 80538
We really are pleased with our Mag. home. It was manufactured in 2011. I would like to know what kind of shower control valves were used, as I have continual problems with it not turning on until i flush toilet or run water in other sinks. It has the Millenial name on it???? I cannot find any service manuals on the product, can you help me with some trouble shooting hints? Thanks stephen and donna joy anselmo

We purchased our house in 2014, several delays, finally moved in to it in late October early November of 2014. He have furnace issues, missing trim work, paint peeling on the side of the house, tile coming up, carpet seems are very visable. No one returns calls or emails.

Penny Hansen from Ekalaka,MT
We purchased a Magnoia home in 2014. It was suppose to arrive in October 2014 finally got here in Dec. 2014 it is now Feb.26,2015 and we still are not in it. There were out of square outside walls,I level windows,carpet with holes in it,trim missing,kitchen cabinets with gouges in them. They have sent a few carpenters to fix part of it but only part is done and now won't send somebody to finish. I would not recommend buying one of these homes unless you like to rebuild once it arrives. Buyer Beware!!!

Dolores Angevine from Grand Junction, CO
My Mother purchased a Magnolia Home in 1972 and it was one of the best built we had ever seen.
