Manufactured Homes: On the Cutting Edge of Design
If you’re a person who likes to keep up with the latest trends in design and technology, it would only make sense that you might want your home to reflect that. After all, if you always like to have the latest electronic gadgets, having an older home might not seem like a good match for your innovative, technology-driven lifestyle. But brand new homes can be very expensive and if you were to have a new home custom built for you, that would be even more expensive and take a long time to build.
The funny thing is that site-built homes aren’t really all that innovative. Sure, design styles change over time, but the process of building a site-built home has more or less stayed the same for centuries. All the building materials are brought to the site of the home and the home is gradually built up over time. If you truly want a home that’s not only full of modern design touches, but is actually built in a highly innovative way, you should look into manufactured homes.
Manufactured homes are built in a way that’s very different from the way site-built homes are constructed. Although manufactured homes and site-built homes are made out of the exact same building materials, manufactured homes are built in factories. The factory building environment means that the people who build manufactured homes are able to use extremely precise tools and the building process can be completed in a matter of weeks, not months. The whole process is so efficient that hardly any building supplies go to waste, making it an environmentally-friendly option.
Manufactured homes are also leading the way in terms of energy efficiency. In fact, the way they’re built helps give them an edge when it comes to making them energy efficient. Since the walls, ceilings, and floors are each able to be built as single units, this creates fewer gaps that could cause drafts. This alone can reduce the amount of air loss in a home by 30% to 50% when compared to site-built homes. You just won’t get that kind of construction in a site-built home! Not only is the building process on your side, HUD codes also require manufactured homes to meet high standards for insulation and energy efficiency. You can take energy efficiency even further by buying an Energy Star certified manufactured home for maximum energy efficiency.
Although manufactured homes are built in factories, don’t think they all come out looking exactly the same! There are tons of different floor plans available for manufactured homes, so you should be able to find many options that suit your style. Manufactured homes also commonly have very modern, stylish, and desirable design features. Love recessed lighting and kitchen islands? You can find them both in manufactured homes. Always dreamed of having a fireplace or walk-in closet? They can both be yours! Since manufactured homes are so much more affordable than other types of homes, you could even have a manufactured home custom built for you so you and get the home of your dreams for an unbeatable price. How’s that for luxury?
For a truly innovative housing option, choose a manufactured home. The homes themselves have many years of innovation behind them and manufacturers never stop looking for ways to keep making them even better. Other housing options just can’t compete!
