Lexington Homes prides itself on manufacturing homes that combine quality and value. “Our vision is to operate a business built on Christian values that makes the dream of home ownership an affordable reality for our customers, and to provide gainful employment to the citizens of both our local and extended communities,” the Lexington, Miss.-based company says. “Our philosophy of building quality homes at a high volume while keeping a very low overhead allows us to have one of the lowest-cost-per-square-foot homes of any builder in the nation.”
Lexington builds its homes in a factory using assembly line methods, giving it a cost per square foot of half that of site-built housing. “This is the same reason an automobile built on an assembly line is about half the cost that it would be if you assembled that same car one part at a time in your back yard,” the company adds. “Factory building means no weather delays, better inventory control, reduced labor cost and better quality control. Factory building also lets us buy in volume, thus further reducing the cost of materials per home.”
The company uses many of the same materials seen in site-built housing including brand names such as Georgia Pacific, Rheem, Nordyne, Whirlpool, Shaw Carpets, General Electric and Owens Corning, it says.
