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.

Our goal was to choose a European old world style home that we could freely and liberally incorporate many of our own specialty building materials.

We feel as though the unique combination of old world materials and craftsmanship created a finished product that is unparalleled.
