Ritz-Craft of Michigan Celebrates 2,000th Home Built in Jonesville Facility

Northwood Modular Homes Accepts Delivery

Home Sweet Home

Northwood Modular Homes owner Tom Herron has the honor of handing new homeowner John Shivley the keys to his house.

JONESVILLE MI: Ritz-Craft Corporation of Michigan and Northwood Modular Homes recently presented keys to the proud recipient of their facility’s 2,000th home. The home is a 1,630 sq. ft. plan with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and has been completely customized to meet the needs of the physically impaired homeowner.

As you pass through the entrance, you are greeted by an open floor plan specifically designed to cater to the physically disabled. Widened door frames and hallways are accented by custom-height countertops and roll-under sinks that accommodate a wheelchair. In addition, standard locks have been replaced by friendlier push button smart keys.

“It’s amazing that only twelve and a half years ago we were not doing much custom work and now it has become a huge part of our business,” states Paul Lindsley, Ritz-Craft of MI General Manager. “Over the years we have been able to greatly progress in our craft.”

The home was purchased through Northwood Modular Homes, a Ritz-Craft approved independent homebuilder, located in Cass City, Michigan. When Ritz-Craft of Michigan first opened its doors in 2000, Northwood Homes was the recipient of the first home built in the facility. Ironic as it may be, it seems only fitting that they are also the recipient of the facility’s 2,000th home.  

When asked how he felt about his new home, owner John Shively answered simply and with a smile: “It’s awesome. I love it.”

Tom and Linda Herron, owners of Northwood Homes, have been homebuilders for over 46 years. Over the years they have made a name for themselves due to the high quality of work and customer service that they continue to deliver.
