The Up Home Design
Contemporary Up Home Design
Founded in 2016, Up Homes, Co. has innovated a new building system that provides full customization of each home, while using sustainable materials, smart home technology, and the most efficient building processes.
Our founders bring a history of design excellence and home building. Libby, our CEO, represents a four generation tradition of homebuilding in the Hudson Valley, a tradition that began with her great grandfather building stone houses nearly a century ago. Blake, our Design Director, has an exceptional understanding of space and how to maximize it within constraints. This ability developed from completing over 200 successful projects from his 20+ years as a practicing architect.
We believe a home is the most personal product you will buy in your lifetime, so it should be designed just right to fit you and your lifestyle. Up Homes combines the best of manufactured and modular homes to give you the greatest flexibility in how you site and finance yours.
New homes in the US are addressing both high and low ends, leaving a missing middle housing crisis. The emerging generation of home buyers are seeking something unique, sustainable, technology-rich and low maintenance. Up Homes is the answer.
Up Homes are beautiful, sustainable and custom. The right home for you.

When we began almost a decade ago, we quickly became overwhelmed by the process of building a traditional home for our weekend property. It would be risky, expensive, and likely drawn out. Then, we met Blake and Libby on-site and in minutes we used their modules to design the perfect home for us, and the lay of the land.

I love the light coming into the house and being able to see the outdoors through the floor-to-ceiling windows! Up Homes offers me the physically easier and environmentally responsible lifestyle I have been seeking in my retirement.

With Up Homes we can afford a home that meets our design and environmental criteria. My wife and I are ready to move out of the city shortly after our first child is born. Our Up Home will allow us to move from renters to owners, while offering flexibility to expand as our family grows.
