Manufactured Homes — A Wheelchair Friendly Option!
Finding an affordable home can be tough for anybody, but if you need to use a wheelchair, finding the right home can be even more complicated. Not only do you have to find a home you can afford, you need to find a home that either already accommodates your wheelchair or can be adapted to suit your needs. A manufactured home could be exactly what you need!
Manufactured housing can be very easily adapted to suit your needs, which makes it ideal for people who use wheelchairs. When you decide to order a brand new manufactured home from the factory, you’ll have plenty of chances to customize your home. Whether it’s something purely cosmetic like the color of your home’s exterior siding or something major like your home’s floor plan, you’ll have plenty of chances to make your home your own. Most companies who produce manufactured homes can build a home for you that can fit your needs by adding things like wider doorways, accessible bathrooms, and assistance rails. You can also choose a home with an open floor plan so you’ll have lots of room to get around. This way, your home will be all ready for you when you move in and you won’t have to worry about trying to retrofit a home to accommodate your wheelchair like you’d have to do if you bought an existing site-built home.
Another big advantage of manufactured homes is that most of them are only one story. The manufactured homes in HomeFirst™ communities are up to 2,300 square feet in size, so even with one story, you’ll still have plenty of room to work with and you won’t have to worry about stairs.
Adding decks and porches are a very popular way for people to customize their manufactured homes. There are lots of very nice styles of decks and porches that use ramps instead of stairs so you’ll have no problem getting in or out of your home as you need to. Plus, you’ll have a lovely place to sit outside and chat with your neighbors on a nice, warm day!
