Since 2002, DeTray’s Custom Housing in Puyallup has been owned and operated by Dana and Diane DeTray. We reached two big mile-stones this year; first, the year 2022 marks the 60th Anniversary since the DeTray family began in the manufactured home business and second, we are celebrating the 20th Anniversary since the torch to the family business was passed to us, the second generation. The DeTray family business was originally started in 1962 by Paul DeTray and his wife, Phyllis and was passed on to us, the next generation, over 20 years ago.
In January of 2012, Paul DeTray was named to the Olympia Master Builders Hall of Fame in recognition of 50 years of outstanding contributions to the housing industry. He and his wife Phyllis (founders of DeTray’s), started developing parks in 1956 and selling mobile homes in 1962. Their accomplishments are plenty; they’ve built DeTray’s Mobile Park and Colonial Estates in Olympia, Skyline Estates in Pullman, and Viking Estates in Puyallup. They’ve also built Colonial Inn, a retirement home next to Colonial Estates which provides apartments for seniors 62 and over. In more recent years, they have introduced Lakeview Meadows, a 55+ development in Lacey, WA.
At DeTray’s Custom Housing, our mission is to offer affordable quality homes, including custom features at the highest value with minimum stress and maximum satisfaction that meet the individual needs of each customer. We know that when it comes to purchasing a home that one size does not fit all. Custom homes are our specialty. We are highly rated for service through our third-party partners and the Better Business Bureau. Our builders conduct Customer Satisfaction Surveys, and we consistently grade the “Best in Class” category for Customer Satisfaction. We thrive on word of mouth advertising and we thank our customers for their referrals. It is a pay for performance philosophy that we have enjoyed for six decades. Please let our family experience help your family, it is what you deserve. Exceptional value, quality and service.
