LEISURE HOMES CORPORATION
Leisure Homes Inc. has over forty years of practical experience and real insight in bringing complex planning, affordable housing, finance, and market development projects to completion.
Our vision allows us to find solutions to every planning and development challenge from public and private financing for affordable and mixed-income housing to innovative implementation strategies for redevelopment and revitalization of our projects.
The majority of our projects were financed through a combination of public and private sources, including USDA Rural Development, the Arkansas Development Finance Authority, conventional bank financing, and equity raised in the capital markets through the sale or syndication of low-income tax credits.
T & E CONTRACTORS, INC.
Construction of the projects is through T & E Contractors, Inc. which was formed in 1992 and is owned by Thomas E. Embach. The company has constructed or rehabilitated over 70 multi-family projects in Arkansas. These projects have been constructed under the guidelines of various agencies including USDA Rural Development, ADFA HOME program, and/or conventional bank loans. T & E contractors employ rough carpenters, trim carpenters, plumbers, HVAC technicians, and heavy equipment operators.
