Modern manufactured homes are extremely different than the mobile homes built prior to 1976. Manufactured homes are built in three standard sizes—single wide, double wide and triple wide. They are built entirely inside home building facilities that are climate controlled to avoid weather delays and almost always have countless customizable options such as types of flooring, cabinetry, and exterior finish, just to name a few. Each home is internally inspected multiple times throughout various phases of construction to confirm proper construction and quality.
If the home is placed on blocks or metal piers, skirting can be added to make the home more visually appealing. Manufactured homes can also be placed on a permanent foundation or on a base — just like a site built home. Manufactured homes can be relocated, however, with the help of a contractor that specializes in manufactured home set up and delivery.
