A History of Manufactured Homes

Even though manufactured housing is more mainstream than it’s ever been, it actually made its appearance back in 1764 when a panelized frame made its way to Massachusetts from London.  Major production of them in the United States dates back to 1926 in New York. Of course, the first ones didn’t come with plumbing installed, but people of the United States were astonished that they could actually travel and sleep inside a place that reminded them of home. Being able to travel hundreds of miles by car and stay in a house that was manufactured offsite made it much less stressful than sleeping in a tent because of all the equipment you have to remember that comes with putting up a tent.  

Manufactured Homes are Quality Homes

Since 1976, all manufactured homes in the United States have been built to standards set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD. The HUD code sets very high standards for durability, construction, and safety of all manufactured homes so the people who live in them will have a wonderful home for decades to come!
