Manufactured homes, commonly known as mobile homes are prefabricated houses. These units are constructed at an assembly plant and then transported to residence location for setup. For legal purposes, these units must be transportable to maintain a "manufactured home" status. Manufacturers of this type housing have created a vast array of floor plans, options and designs to appeal to a wide variety of home buyers.
Once seen as basic housing, designed for low-income and retirement families, manufactured homes are now built to appeal to virtually everyone. Many of today's models are quite upscale in appearance, and offer floor plans that include spacious rooms, upscale amenities and stylish decor.
