We offer a range of house styles, but one of the most consistently popular is our manufactured houses. Manufactured homes, also sometimes referred to as mobile homes, have a great deal of assumptions surrounding them, and in this article, we’ll provide an introduction to the topic based on factual information.

Manufactured Houses 101

The biggest difference between manufactured houses and traditional ones lies in the way that they are constructed. Instead of being built on site, manufactured homes are assembled in factories according to strict federal construction and safety standards. Instead of a foundation, these homes have a permanent chassis, or base frame with wheels. Once the home and chassis are complete, the whole thing is professionally transported to the final site and installed there. During final installation, the wheels and axles are removed, and the structure is anchored into place, with some manufactured homes even being installed on permanent or semipermanent foundations.

Manufactured houses are a great option for anyone who is looking to downsize, or who wants a cozier space. They are also a more economical option, requiring less energy to run and less upkeep to maintain. In addition, their construction methods are typically more environmentally friendly than those of traditional homes, using less energy and materials.
