About Us


Firm History
In 1969 Don Westphal established a small land planning and landscape architecture firm out of his Rochester, Michigan home. Working alone, Don wanted to provide a level of service rarely seen in the manufactured housing industry. It is an idea that is successful today.


From these modest beginnings the firm has grown to become one of the nation’s foremost authorities on manufactured home community design.  Don regularly travels North America to present and lecture in front of leading developers, manufacturers, and designers. He has also had several publications published by the Manufactured Housing Institute that are considered essential reading for new and experienced developers alike.

While the firm has become a leader in manufactured housing, it has simultaneously expanded its services.  More than just manufactured housing, Donald C. Westphal Associates provides everything from single family subdivision design, RV resort design, to community imaging. Even high-end recreation facilities, commercial developments, and resorts have become a forte of the firm. With a wealth of experience, our team of professionals regularly provides expert consulting and design services that meet our client's needs.

A Note From Don:
"It's amazing how time flies when you're having fun! For nearly 50 years, we have had the privilege of participating in the planning of several hundred thousand homesites, RV campsites and many other development projects across this beautiful country. To be honest, I don't know what life would be like if we did not have an exciting and challenging project on the next day's agenda. We cherish our role in changing the face of the earth for the better, one parcel at a time and are proud to have created so many environmentally sensitive site plans and attractive images. We look forward to the future and our next challenging design with the same enthusiasm and excitement we felt in the early stages of our career and would be honored to bring that excitement and commitment to your next project."
