Timberland Homes, one of the largest builders of modular homes in the Pacific Northwest, recently sold its 2,600th home.

The Auburn-based company continues to perform well in a difficult housing market climate. Timberland Homes recently received Inc. Magazines’ award for being one of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies for the four years ending in 2007 with a growth in revenues of 71.7 percent.

Timberland Homes reported $11.3 million in revenues for 2007.

The company’s clientele stretches throughout the state and the Northwest, including Alaska.

Founded in 1973, Timberland Homes specializes in building customized, modular homes primarily for people who currently own land. The company, which employs 35, offers traditional and contemporary pre-built homes at its 5.5-acre construction center. Timberland offers homes of all sizes and shapes, from houseboats to single-, two-story homes and those placed over basements.

It also performs site and foundation work while the home is being constructed.

Timberland Homes continues to spur the curiosity of its customers.

“It’s our innovation,” said Dave McKim, company president. “People who didn’t use to consider us now see the speed, efficiency and pricing of our homes.”

In addition, the company’s homes are built green through a state program that requires its members to fulfill a set of criteria to ensure environmentally friendly home building methods and practices.

Timberland Homes recently received bids for two additional houses for the University of Washington oceanography department in Friday Harbor.
