Retiring within a manufactured home community is an affordable and secure investment. Manufactured homes provide many advantages over mobile retirement homes and other homes known as site-built, stick-built, or brick and mortar.
One of the biggest advantages is that manufactures homes are built in a dry indoor environment, eliminating elements like wind and rain. Indoor manufactured home construction continues no matter what the conditions are outside, which eliminates Mother Nature’s roadblocks, which ultimately impact time of completion.
Manufactured homes are built by an experienced crew of craftsman, technicians and assemblers, who work together, as a team, under professionally supervised and controlled circumstances. Inspectors insure the highest levels of quality by meeting HUD (federal) Code specifications.
Today’s manufactured retirement homes offer the same amenities and features as site-built homes, if not more. Bathrooms can be equipped with recessed bathtubs or comfortable whirlpools. The dining and living room areas may have vaulted ceilings and fireplaces. Kitchens come standard with modern appliances, upgraded wooden cabinets, beautiful stone countertops and more. Bedrooms can even feature huge walk-in closets, recessed lighting, and so on. The options are endless.
Manufactured home architectural design features allow exterior elevations that add distinction and personality. Consider adding bay windows, a gable front, dormers, a pitched roof with shingles, awnings, patio covers, decks, steps, screened lanais/Florida rooms. And don’t forget that carports, over-sized garages and golf cart storage are all available options.
With manufacturers using computer-assisted design planning, you can select your ideal floorplan while trying different combinations of interior and exterior features. The ability to “try before you buy” is one of the many advantages to building a manufactured retirement home that customized to your wants and needs.
