Manufactured Homes

 What are Manufactured Homes?

Manufactured Homes are single- or multi-section residential homes built entirely in a factory controlled environment and then transported to the site and installed. The homes are built in accordance with rigid construction, durability and safety requirements of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (the HUD Code). The HUD Code also sets performance standards for the heating, plumbing, air conditioning, thermal and electrical systems.

How are Manufactured Homes built?

The factory process builds the home from the inside out, which results in ease of installation for interior walls and plumbing and electrical systems. The house and materials on an assembly line travel to the workers, with scaffolds, tools and materials within easy reach. Computer-assisted design (CAD) programs also offer speed and flexibility for manufacturers.

 

Advantages to Factory built homes – Affordability and Quality

  • Factory built houses are on average 10-35% less than a comparable site-built house.
  • All aspects of the construction process are controlled.
  • Weather can not cause delays or damage materials.
  • All technicians, craftsmen and assemblers are on the same team and professionally supervised.
  • Construction materials as well as appliances and interior features are bought in bulk for increased savings.
  • Inventory is protected from theft.
  • All aspects of construction are continually inspected by not one, but several, inspectors.
  • Cost of interim construction financing is significantly reduced or eliminated.
  • The controlled setting in the factory encourages tighter construction, which allows manufactured homes to have 25 percent less air leakage than site-built homes.

 

What Amenities are included in Manufactured Homes?

Today’s manufactured home offers the quality, value and technologically-advanced features that homebuyers desire. Traditional site-built homes have features such as dry wall interiors, textured ceilings, and vinyl siding. Manufactured homes also have these outstanding amenities! Vinyl siding and pitched roofs are readily available.
Homebuyers can also choose from features such as bay windows, sky lights, vaulted ceilings, walk-in closets, fireplaces, state-of-the-art appliances, custom cabinets and spas.

Spacious floor plans, customization packages, and exterior designs compatible with almost any neighborhood are attracting consumers, as well as builder-developers who are using manufactured housing in their subdivisions in increasing numbers.

On-site additions, such as garages, decks and porches, often add to the attractiveness of manufactured homes and must be built to local, state or regional building codes.

Today’s manufactured homes offer quality and value to homebuyers, providing amenities and floor plans to fit any lifestyle and any budget.
