Manufactured homes offer more flexibility not less and lower cost!
To use a popular phrase with a bit of alteration: Today’s manufactured homes are not your grandfather’s mobile homes. What were once referred to as mobile homes built before 1079, the government didn’t have any building regulations for their construction. Today, the standards are high and building of a manufactured home in an enclosed and controlled environment is second to none. Manufactured homes at Summerfields West 55+ in New Jersey actually offers about as many options and customizations as you can imagine. There are countless options available such as the ability to move walls.

So, you may be wondering just how much money can a manufactured home save ? A few years ago, North Carolina A&T University and the U.S. Department of Energy studied the energy efficiency of one type of manufactured home. The university built two houses on the Greensboro campus. Each three-bedroom, three-bath house was 1,528 square feet (142 square meters) [source: U.S. Department of Energy].
Although the homes were unoccupied, researchers rigged up the lights and appliances with timers to simulate normal energy use. One house was a “base” house that acted as a control. The other was an “energy” house, which was built with energy-efficient materials and appliances. Researchers expected the energy house to be 50 percent more energy efficient than the base house. After studying both houses for an entire winter heating season and summer cooling season, researchers found that the energy house actually exceeded expectations with an overall savings of 55 percent. That’s amazing!
