A Message From the Owners

John & Mary Anna Palmer

Whether you have your own plans and ideas or want help developing custom plans and elevations, the people of Palmer Development Corp. will give you their personal attention in designing and building an Alternative Modular Home℠ to meet your every need and budget.

The planning and costing process is so specific and detailed, that all Alternative Modular Homes are offered for a fixed price. There are never any allowances, which is a builder’s way of saying surprise!
