We are very proud to say that our "Platinum Home" is just beautiful! It has every new home amenity plus the extra construction strength to sustain winds to 150 MPH. We are located in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, where we lost our home to Hurricane Katrina, and strength and structure is a big plus to us!
Once we negotiated with the builder and the "Platinum Homes" representative, our home was factory-built and ready for shipping in 30 days... as we were told. I was able to choose from a large variety of paint colors, flooring, appliances, cabinets, counter tops, tile and even window treatments. I was very surprised and pleased when I saw the finished product. It is truly a dream house that I put together with wonderful guidance.
The plant representative, Larry Wilkinson, made every effort to please us and met all of our needs. He was even present when the home arrived in Mississippi and was being put together with the big crane ... lifted ... and set...onto pilings.
Our building contractor, Ed Whitson, is very experienced and knowledgeable, and he guided us all the way through to the finishing touches. He lined up all the subcontractors for the cement, plumbing, electricity, and lifting of the home. He even acquired all of the state and local permits and surveys, and checked all the codes. He was very professional and left us with no worries.
What a sight it was to see our home lifted 15 plus feet by a crane and set perfectly on top of the pilings, put together and secured in place. The first time we celebrated since the loss of our home!
"Whitson Builders" is a family-owned business, and they treated us like family the entire time. Ed and his son, Brennan, worked together and closely with their crew. They took great pride in ALL the work that was being done. Ed and his wife, Becky, inspected our house before it left the factory and again on delivery. Becky gave us such good advice, and she checked things out that we didn't even think about.
When all was done and our home was complete, Ed and Becky presented us with a beautiful spiral booklet of notes, photographs, surveys, permits, contracts, etc... of every step on how our house was built from beginning to end. We now share this with all our friends and family.
Thank you Larry, "Platinum Homes" & "Whitson Builders" for our dream home, our dream come true. Job well done!

I can highly recommend Ed Whitson Builders. We own a lot on Ft. Morgan that presented many challenges to home construction. Ed worked with us for several years prior to placing the home and has carried through on his promises unwaveringly. We are very happy with our modular home. Ed is friendly, knowledgeable, and unflappable, a nice combination of characteristics in someone you are entrusting with a large investment. I would not hesitate to have Ed place another house for us.
In 2016, my husband and I were looking for a modular home company that had the quality and details we wanted in our new home. Since this would be our second modular we had done, we were very familiar with the process and the construction of these homes. We had met with several companies and was very excited when with met with Ed Whitson of Whitson Builders as his company had the quality and details we were looking for. I am so glad we decided to go with Ed. It was the right decision for us.

Judy and I had a vision of a dream home near the beach with a south facing porch. We gave Eddie Whitson a rough drawing of the dimensions and layout we were looking for and he took it from there. Designers at Platinum Build Homes did the modular design for us and Eddie set up the production and delivery schedule. We are now moving into out new home and couldn't be more pleased.
The quality of the construction is such that the home con withstand 150 MPH hurricane force winds. The home came carpeted, with crown molding window valances and blinds throughout. Just add your own furniture for the final touich. Modular is definitely the way to go - lower price than stick built and superb quality.
When you are ready to build, go modular and select Eddie Whitson as our builder - there is no better choice.

In 2015 we purchased a Whitson Builders Modular home for our lot in Fort Morgan, Alabama. The sole purpose of this purchase was to use it as a Vacation Rental (VRBO - Vacation Rental By Owner). The home was up and ready to go in 2 month's generating a lucrative income. We are currently looking at another property to purchase and will most definitly do another Modular with Ed Whitson.
We are very pleased with the entire project and with Ed Whitson.
