Instagram post by @cliffmayprefabs Cliff May Prefabs

This is a photo of a sales map of Las Vegas’s “Charleston Heights No. 3,” the second largest collection of Cliff May pre-fabs outside of California. Charleston Heights is a very rare example of a neighborhood where a builder actually built more houses than originally proposed. You can see on the map that there were originally supposed to be 102 units, however, if you visit today, you will find approximately 50 additional Cliff May pre-fabs along Evergreen Avenue on the west side of Upland Boulevard.

To the right of the map is Chris Choate’s lauded “color system,” for which, of course, this photo does no justice. Instead of allowing the buyer to mix and match colors themselves, they were instead given a choice of color groupings, for which all of the the colors in a given grouping were harmoniously matched by Choate. This would have included interior and exterior paint colors, tile flooring, laminate countertops, and for those tracts with metal cabinets, cabinet color, among other color specs that I probably missed.

The Vegas tract was built by Burns Construction of Nevada, a division of Denver’s D. C. Burns Realty & Trust, which built the Denver tract.
