High Quality, Affordable - Housing for All


indieDwell's mission is to revolutionize the building industry by producing dwellings that not only better their occupants health and well-being, but simultaneously improve the health of the environment and empower community.

indieDwell builds Steel Frame Modular Housing which

  • Reduces construction time, cost and waste

  • Produces massive efficiencies in production time and quality

The final product is considered a permanent home - not a manufactured home

  • Our units do not depreciate like a manufactured home

  • indieDwell units are much higher quality than a manufactured home

We produce our homes in communities which need a boost, but can ship them anywhere

  • We bring economic development to communities which need opportunity

  • Our focus on economically depressed markets allows us to pay above market wages in these communities

  • Our cost of production is also kept low through bulk ordering

  • Remember these are shipping containers - so they are easy to ship anywhere
