Where We Began in 1983…

Groundbreaking – Donny & Debi – 1983

Donny Meadows, president of Meadows Homes, is a life-long resident of the Cookeville region and attended TTU. He and his wife, Debi, started Meadows Homes over 41 years ago and now have four dealerships across Tennessee.

Meadows Homes first opened for business on March 1, 1983 on North Washington Avenue in Cookeville, TN, with the goal of providing great deals on quality built homes and standing behind their homeowners with great service.

In 1994, Meadows Homes relocated to Interstate Drive in Cookeville, and today – more than 41 years later and with over 20,000 families served – we still stand by our original values. Donny and his wife, Debi, have two sons, Matt and Josh, who are also active in the family business of helping and serving future homeowners.

Where We Are in 2024…

As Tennessee’s largest independent retailer with four convenient locations in Cookeville, Lebanon, McMinnville and Sevierville, Meadows Homes now serves families throughout Tennessee, North Carolina, Kentucky, Alabama, and Georgia.

By remaining independent, Meadows Homes is not tied to any manufacturer or lender. We can shop industry wide to find you the very best value on your home and your financing. With our large buying power, we are able to have our homes built to our strict Meadows Homes guidelines, all the while giving you the very best value available today.

Regardless of your families’ home needs, whether single wide, double wide or modular, Meadows Homes can assist you with all your needs. We always appreciate the opportunity to serve your family. Please let us know how we can help.

Today’s Manufactured Homes are Well-Designed and Constructed

Manufactured housing is of comparable quality and lifespan to site-built housing. Being built in a controlled, factory environment means assembly line efficiencies and no weather delays, and results in production cost savings that are passed to the homebuyer. Federal construction regulations mandating minimum construction and safety standards for these homes have been in place and overseen by the U.S. Department of HUD since 1976.

Manufactured Housing is Home to a Significant Number of Americans

More than 17.5 million Americans live in manufactured homes, which make up over 6 percent of the nation’s total housing stock. (2017 American Community Survey).

Manufactured Housing is Energy Efficient

Today’s manufactured homes are safe and energy efficient. A new manufactured home can be quickly installed and customized with numerous features. For millions of homebuyers, a manufactured home is the smart choice: an affordable investment with the potential to appreciate.

Manufactured Housing is a Stable Housing Option

The median manufactured homeowner household spends only 16% of their income on housing, and less than 25% of manufactured homeowner households are cost-burdened, compared to over 27% of all US homeowners and almost 50% of all renters (2017 American Community Survey).

Manufactured Housing is Found Across the United States

Manufactured homes can be found in urban, suburban and rural areas throughout the country. According to the 2017 American Housing Survey, manufactured housing makes up about 3 percent of all housing in urban areas and 15 percent in rural areas. Over half of all manufactured housing is in rural areas.

Manufactured Housing is Affordable 

In the US, 49% of manufactured housing is affordable for households at or below 50% of the area median, compared to just 26% of all housing (2017 American Community Survey).
