Modern Manufactured Homes: What is All the Buzz About?

Manufactured homes in Florida have gained a lot of attention recently both in the design world and perhaps on your “dream home” Pinterest board. Why? Manufactured homes have gained attention because of the 3P’s: Plans, Prices, and Product.
Modern manufactured homes in Florida are extremely different than the mobile homes built in the 60’s and early 70’s however, often manufactured homes are still referred to in the three standard sizes they are built in. Single wide, double wide and triple wide may sound like mobile home terms but that changed in 1976 with standards set by the National Mobile Home Construction and Safety Act, known as ‘the HUD Code.” The intent of the implemented ‘HUD Code’ was to improve the quality, durability and other requirements and it is the only federally-regulated national building code.  
Manufactured Homes Floor Plans
Today’s manufactured homes in Florida and their floor plans are vastly different than what was created in the 60’s. Built entirely inside home manufacturing facilities, climate controlled conditions mitigate weather delays that often come with building directly on a lot of land. With many customizable options from flooring to cabinetry and finish, it is easy to make this your modern dream home.
Modern manufactured floor plans provide a wide variety of layouts and configurations to fit every need and lifestyle. With so many floor plans to choose from, it is easy to see where one may get lost in the fun of your floor plan search.
Pro Tip: Start with a few floor plans and after picking a favorite, identify similar manufactured home floor plans. Finalize your decision by narrowing those similar floor plans to your “can’t live without” decision!
Manufactured Home Prices
Manufactured homes in Florida provide an affordable option for your first home, vacation home or retirement lifestyle that you desire. So how much does a manufactured home cost?
