President of Whole Home Control
Cliff Rosen is the hands on owner-operator of Whole Home Control, a boutique home technology integrator (HTI) formed in 2008 to service the high end residential market of New York City and surrounding areas. Cliff formed Whole Home Control following a 15 year career as an engineer and executive of Internet software companies. His shift from Internet software to home technology reflects his deepest passions: helping to creating extraordinary home environments and working as a trusted tech adviser, collaborator and implementer.

In Cliff’s prior “C” level experience developing Internet software, he managed teams of up to 50 engineers building systems ranging from large scale consumer Web sites to enterprise SaaS products. Bringing this experience to the HTI world affords him the systems architecture and project management expertise demanded by implementation of advanced technologies in high end residential architecture. Cliff has an Economics degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
The Rise of Factory-built Housing: Episode 2
Modular builders have taken the art of prefabrication to an entirely new level, where entire rooms with insulation, plumbing, and electric wiring are made in a factory. These rooms (called “modules”) are transported to a building site and then stacked next to and on top of one another to form a home in days. In the Hamptons, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and other major cities, it’s now possible to build a beautiful modern home modularly for as much as 50% the cost of building with local contractors.
