Trumark Homes is developing two new housing communities in Escondido – Sonora Hills and Amanda Lane – aimed at families who want a traditional single-family home.

“The common aspect of both is they are what we call conventional homes on conventional lots,” said Richard Douglass, president of Trumark Homes, which is based in San Ramon, California.

Trumark Homes is a subsidiary of the Japanese firm, Daiwa Housing Group, that acquired the California company in January 2020.

“When we talk about single-family homes, a lot of times in the modern builder world, they’re basically single-family condos,” Douglass said.

Construction of Sonora Hills is due to start in November and finish in June 2024, followed by construction of Amanda Lane, starting in about a year with completion expected in the spring of 2025.
