Mobile homes are becoming popular because of their simplicity and minimalist qualities. They provide an affordable housing alternative without losing that all important homey feel. The key is to search for a mobile home park where you could see yourself living for the next 10, 20 or even 30 years.

Doing your research before making a decision is important. If you’re seeking a space where you can enjoy some serenity, then you won’t want to choose a mobile home park where there are loads of families and small children.

You can learn a lot online by referencing great resources, such as the Michael H Scott mobile home park information website, but you’ll also want to physically go and check out the parks if you can, just to see first hand what they’re really like and who lives there.

To help you discover more about mobile homes and mobile home park living, in this post we’ll take a very brief look at how mobile home parks are made, as well as the homes themselves, inside and out.

An Insight Into The Manufacturing of Mobile Homes

The Making of a Mobile Home Park

Before a mobile home park can be made, there obviously needs to be a decent sized block of land on which to situate it. The size will depend on how many mobile home lots are planned, as well as zoning laws in the local area. On average, anywhere from 3 to 5 acres of available land would be needed, along with permits from local and state authorities to build the park.

From that point it’ll be a matter of following a plan and constructing roadways within the park, as well as establishing each individual lot. There needs to be an office and accommodations for the management team to operate out of, as well as facilities for the community to enjoy.

Common in modern mobile home parks are things like:

  • A swimming pool
  • Game’s room
  • Barbecue and outdoor eating area
  • Public toilets and shower block
  • Possibly a small community hall for meetings and such
  • And more...

Establishing gardens and areas of lawn for residents to relax outdoors is also important, as today’s park dwellers expect a pleasant and picturesque mobile home park in which to live.

The mobile homes will be built off site and delivered to the property, where they’ll be established on foundations and have the plumbing and electricity connected up, ready for occupancy. Decking the homes out with furniture is optional, regardless of whether the homes are to be rented or sold. Many people will have their own furniture.

Manufacturing of Mobile Homes

Modern day manufactured homes or mobile homes are of a high standard, with many different plans and layouts to choose from. Some are small while others are very roomy and spacious.

For the most part these homes are built in a factory, with the finished product delivered to the site for final assembly and installation, as mentioned in the section above.

The factories where mobile homes are put together are almost as large as a small town, as they need to be able to accommodate the building of multiple homes at the same time. A team of builders is on hand to handle every stage of the process, which begins with the flooring, after which pre-made walls are attached, followed by the roof.

Everything is done with the aid of machinery and the process is absolute precision. If you can visit a mobile home factory and watch how it’s done, it’s very interesting. It’s amazing how systematic it all is.

Once the basic home has been put together, it’s then finished off with cladding, painting and fittings for kitchens, bathrooms, lights, power outlets and switches.

The idea is to be able to get these homes built quickly and for a budget price, making them a cost effective investment for mobile home park operators.

Once the mobile home park has been established, chances are most of the homes required to fill the park will already be built, or be very close to completion. These days a mobile home park can be started from scratch and decked out with 200 homes in no time at all.

The popularity of mobile homes continues to soar, keeping the demand for more and more parks very high.
