We pioneered the use of Auto-CAD in the Florida manufactured home industry. Auto-CAD is one of the most sophisticated computer-aided design and drafting programs available, ensuring that our manufactured homes are solid from the beginning of the design process. Utilizing Auto-CAD to draft our plans ensures that every individual floor plan will be executed with extreme precision. No other home on the market is “Engineered for People” like a Jacobsen Home.
