Stack Homes

Salt Lake City-based modular home and accessory dwelling unit builder Stack Homes has acquired Modules, LLC, to expand manufacturing capabilities through its new division, Stack Modular Development. The company recently moved into an 80,000-square-foot facility with tech-enabled production lines to be able to produce over 620 homes a year.

Beginning with Stack Homes models as well as modular buildings for residential developments and commercial projects, the new space lends additional space for a future design showroom for clients to view completed homes and the manufacturing process.

Stack Modular Development’s technology includes a system like 3D printing that can precision-cut steel to build the structural envelope of the building in less than one day. A laser-guided assembly system also allows operators to accurately—and quickly—sequence work and position components.

Founded in 2019 by Sumner Douglas, Stack Homes builds with LEED-certified and passive home standards for highly energy-efficient homes. The modular dwellings can be constructed in less than half the time of on-site construction with 90% less waste, according to the builder.

“It has been in our plans to bring manufacturing in-house to deliver the best quality and timelines to our clients,” says Douglas. “The acquisition of Modules provides a next-level opportunity to also allow us to expand our product offerings to provide modular solutions in more areas of the housing industry. This knowledgeable team, combined with cutting-edge technology enhancements we are outfitting in our new factory, will make us one of the most capable modular builders in the country.”

Currently in production are affordable homes for The Other Side Village, a homeless resolution project in Salt Lake City, that will offer up to 300 homes in a master-planned support community.
