Join the Home Sweet Mobile Homes MovementNews / Consumer
Mobile homes aren’t what they once were. New mobile homes are built to the highest level of standards: the Federal Mobile Home Construction and Safety Standards. Manufacturers of factory direct mobile homes now offer a wider variety of styles than traditional builders, allowing buyers to truly get their dream home. The only constant in the mobile home manufacturing industry is affordability. Mobile homes continue to cost tens of thousands less than a tract home or custom-build. All of these factors combine in what is being called the Home Sweet Mobile Homes Movement. Take a look at two styles from TheMobileHomeStore.com to see if you might want to join:
The Montano – At 1,760 square feet with vaulted ceilings throughout and four bedrooms, these new mobile homes provide more than enough space for a family. Designer touches include textured walls painted in Swiss Coffee, brushed-chrome doorknobs and designer valances on all windows. Carpet (18 oz.) and linoleum run throughout.
The roomy kitchen of these factory direct mobile homes is perfect for the home chef. It has GE appliances and a lighted hood range, plus factory-built cabinets with center shelves and hidden hinges. High-pressure laminate countertops and a 9-inch acrylic sink complete the room. Classic SmartPanel siding covers the exterior of the mobile homes, as does two-color paint.
The Alpine – On the smaller side, these new mobile homes come in at 941 square feet and take their inspiration from the traditional log cabin. A composition shingle roof, stone chimney and covered front porch create the cabin feel, and two bedrooms provide ample space for a couple or small family.
Inside these mobile homes, walls are textured and feature baseboard molding. Designer drapes, mini-blinds and carpet – available in several designer colors – are standard throughout the home. In the kitchen, homebuyers also can choose from several designer colors for their countertops. Appliances are full-size GE, and ribbed-panel hardwood covers the cabinets. Bathrooms in these factory direct mobile homes also go above and beyond, with elongated, water-saver toilets and tile trim around the tubs and countertops.
To see these new mobile homes and others, visit TheMobileHomeStore.com. Homebuyers also can visit one of the manufacturer’s retail centers. The centers offer daily factory tours, allowing homebuyers to see the building process up close and learn more about the standards that regulate the design, construction, strength, durability, fire resistance and energy efficiency of all homes from TheMobileHomeStore.com. After the tour, homebuyers can visit the model village and see the many styles of factory direct mobile homes and hear about all available upgrades.
