You’ve decided to build your dream modular home. Congratulations! That’s a great first step towards homeownership. Building a modular home in Arkansas is a little different from other places, though. Unlike some states, Arkansas doesn’t have any modular homebuilders based here, making it harder to decide who to build your home.
But don’t worry! There are several modular home retailers that deal with factory-built homes coming from nearby states. We’ll review the retailers first, then dive into the builders you can choose from.
When it comes to modular home retailers, it’s best to work with someone close. Most retailers will carry a variety of modular and manufactured homes to choose from. Some represent only builders associated with the parent family, like Clayton Homes. On the other hand, there are retailers that offer a selection of homes from different manufactures.
While this list doesn’t include all the modular home retailers in Arkansas, it covers a wide range of what is out there.
Country Comfort Homes in Hot Springs was founded in 1999. Since then, they have become the largest supplier of Deer Valley Homes in Arkansas. No matter where you live or are looking to build, they can help you.
They offer a wide range of Deer Valley Homes floor plans to choose from. And if you can’t find something you like among the 30+ floor plans available, they will be happy to help you customize your home.

Now that you know some places you can purchase your home from, let’s examine some of the builders you will have to choose from. As we mentioned, not all retailers will carry the same homes. So if there is a manufacturer you prefer, look for a retailer that sells those homes.

Buccaneer Homes is a part of the Clayton family, as we mentioned earlier. Founded in 1971, Buccaneer is another Alabama-based modular home builder that ships to Arkansas. They joined the Clayton family in 2009 (along with Southern Homes, below) but remained their own brand.
They continue to provide quality prefabricated homes just like they did 40 years ago. They offer over 30 floor plans to choose from. Each home is built with the quality, energy-efficient construction that you can come to expect from a Clayton built home. They feature top-rated brands and fashionable decor.
As we mentioned above, Southern Homes is another unique Alabama brand in the Clayton homes family. Founded in 1982, they became known for innovative floor plans and custom modifications. Since then, customization has remained their focus.
Southern Homes feature modern kitchens and spacious living areas. But Southern Homes don’t just look good. These solidly built homes feature the latest energy-saving technologies. If you want, they can even be built to EnergyStar standards.
You can find Southern Homes at Clayton homes or Luv Homes retail locations.
Deer Valley is yet another modular home builder based out of–that’s right–Alabama. (In fact, if you’ve stumbled onto this post looking for a home in Alabama, you can find that article here.) They focus on building energy-efficient, sustainable modular homes. Their “Heavy Built” homes can help save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars on energy bills. And who doesn’t want that?
Here’s a quick video tour of a Deer Valley home:
They offer four different series of homes, including their Nativ Living Series, which is a collaboration with Mossy Oak. This series is designed to bridge the gap between indoors and outdoors, allowing you to feel closer to nature.
Whichever floor plan you choose, you can decorate it to your sense of style. And don’t forget the modern energy-efficient appliances as well. You can count on everything in your home being custom and top of the line.
While there aren’t any modular home builders based in Arkansas, that doesn’t mean you can’t build a modular home there. As we’ve shown, there are a number of modular home retailers that represent out-of-state builders. Whether you choose to support a small local retailer or someone who is part of a larger national chain is up to you.
Either way, you will find that there are a number of manufacturers out there with experience building modular homes. With a wide range of floor plans and features to choose from, you’re guaranteed to find your dream home.
