Gulf Coast Modular Home Show in Mississippi Jan. 9-21

The  Modular Building Systems Association (MBSA), along with NAHB’s Building Systems Councils and Volunteers of America Southeast, will be conducting a modular home show in Pass Christian, Miss. from Jan. 9-21 as part of the Gulf Coast rebuilding effort following the devastating hurricanes of 2005.

The Gulf Coast Home Show will feature a variety of modular homes, including models from All American Homes, Crestline Homes, Custom Building Systems, Geometric Building Systems, New Era Building Systems and others. The homes will be presented in a “scattered lot development.”

The first five days of the show, Jan. 9-13, will be open to building industry professionals, government officials and the media. The show opens at 8:00 a.m. at the Espy Center on Jan. 9, followed by a bus tour of the homes from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. that day.

The show will be open to the general public from Jan. 14-21 from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. and home tours will be free.

In conjunction with the home show, Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Modular Housing Training Institute (MHTI) will also be conducting a two-day, hands-on course, “Introduction to Site Management for Modular Construction,” in Pass Christian.

The MHTI course curriculum includes site and foundation preparation, an overview of optimal scheduling, the complete modular home set and key issues when finishing a modular home.

For more information on the home show or MHTI course, visit www.modularshow.com, or call the MBSA at 717-238-9130.
