We Are Davis Homes!
Davis Homes is a retailer of factory-built homes that’s been in business since 1972. It’s a family owned business in its second generation of ownership. Don & Rita Davis started the business with one single wide on a rented piece of property in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. This home was both office and model home. Don would hire the “good old boy” and/or the preacher next door to help him set up a home after a sale.
In 1978, Don moved Davis Homes to the west side of Mt. Pleasant where he operated the business for 30 years. Having four sons was an advantage on many summer days when home set up was the busiest. Don & Rita’s oldest son Sid went to college, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, and then came back to help Don for a summer in 1994 and never left.
After many discussions and much prayer, on July 1st, 2008, Sid & Laura Davis purchased Davis Homes from Don & Rita and moved the business across town where the new highway bypass was built. The property that was purchased for the business was an old farmstead. All of the buildings were torn down except for the silo, which has been preserved both for nostalgia and as a landmark.
Currently, Sid Davis owns Davis Homes, spending most of his days with customers on their properties and helping our awesome set up crew. Laura Davis manages our office and finances. We also maintain full-time contract employees who work for Davis Homes setting and servicing our homes.
