FERNDALE, Wash. — Method Homes has been operating in Ferndale since 2008 according to company officials, leasing space at 2 locations in north Ferndale. But work is underway to consolidate their operations into a 70,000-square-foot, $2.1-million facility on Northgate Way.
The new facility is planned to be completed in May according to Method Homes Co-founder Brian Abramson.
Method Homes is a custom manufacturer of prefabricated modular residential and commercial structures with locations in Ferndale and Seattle.
Abramson said the facility will house production, warehouse and office space and will be “net zero energy,” leveraging a collection of solar panels on the roof that will make up a 120kW solar array.
The Ferndale locations have built over 300 projects and currently employ over 40 people according to Abramson.
We plan to continue to grow and add skilled trades employees in conjunction with the move to the new space.Method Homes Co-founder Brian Abramson
Abramson said much of what Method Homes produces is shipped to locations in the San Juan islands, California and western states east of the Cascade and Rocky Mountain ranges.
According to Abramson, “Prefabrication allows Method to reduce construction timelines and control costs while building custom projects in a controlled environment, minimizing exposure and waste.”
