Posted on:

E. T. Moore Homes is a wholly owned subsidiary of E. T. Moore Manufacturing, Inc. and turning your dreams into reality is what we set out to accomplish from day one. We listen to your desires, needs, and ideas and then with beautiful designs by one of our recommend, award-winning architects or by a designer of your choice, combine them with exceptional value and long-lasting quality materials.

All of our employees that worked full time on the project have an average of 25 years’ experience with construction and antique building materials. We feel as though the unique combination of old world materials and craftsmanship created a finished product that is unparalleled.

The Model House Completion

Posted on:

We are proud to deliver this house over to the homeowners..  We are currently looking at designs to start a second house in the near future.   Not only do we manufacture all of the building components from antique heart pine flooring, reclaimed beams with antique connection hardware, cabinets, siding, and shingles, our constructions division, E. T. Moore Homes can build the entire package for you. The relationship of manufacturing and building gives us insight and flexibility that few reclaimed lumber dealers and general contractors could ever achieve at the same budget levels.

The Model of Viniterra

Posted on:

     The Model home, in Viniterra,  is nearing completion.  The artisans of  E. T. Moore Homes are reviving lost traditions in home building and design.  Not being satisfied with the quality of many material and components, we choose to manufacture them our self.  In the kitchen we custom designed and built the cabinets, and even the copper vent hood above the stove.  The counter tops were made from recycled bowling alleys and incorporated the original dots and arrows.  In the foyer we installed the floor using a pattern of three diamonds, to create a hexagon;  Cad programs were utilized to manufacture the perfect sized diamonds, resulting in even spacing around the perimeter of the foyer. The front and rear steps were reclaimed sandstone window lentils.  Throughout the house, we incorporated a very popular product, Original Finish Antique Heart Pine.  These boards are specifically chosen for the patina and rustic look to coincide with the French Country architecture.  We are proud of this home’ s materials and construction as it sets the standards for the Viniterra Community.
