Pacific Ready Cut Homes - in Tulsa?

Friday night, I was “driving” the streets of Tulsa (via Google Maps), looking for kit homes when I happened upon a familiar-looking house from Pacific Ready Cut Homes.

“What in the world?” I thought to myself.

I pulled out some old books and sure enough, my suspicions were right. I’d found a kit home from Pacific Ready Cut Homes in Tulsa!

Pacific Ready Cut Homes was based in Los Angeles, and is best described as a regional kit home company, and yet, they’re really the largest “regional” company that we know about. They sold about 40,000 kit homes, and the great majority landed in and around the West Coast. The company’s literature boasted that they’d sold their kits throughout the country, but despite some serious hunting, I’ve never seen them on the East Coast - that I know of.

However Tulsa is not exactly the East Coast!

Rachel Shoemaker (the Kit Home person of Tulsa) went out and got some great photographs of this purported kit home.

Is it a Pacific Ready Cut Home? Sure looks like it to me.

Wouldnt it be interesting to find that Tulsa had an entire tract of Pacific Homes? We can only hope!
