The PlusVilla Pre-Fab is Fabulous

I have not written about pre-fabricated homes since they are very expensive and really nothing like a true mobile home. Most are hauled in on flat back trucks with no wheels underneath whatsoever.
However, I am certain this is how manufactured housing companies will be designing in the near future. The post I did about Clayton’s I house is proof enough of the designs we can expect. With pre-fab companies closing in on the market and price being their only real issue, the manufacturers are going to have to change their designs just to compete in today’s market.

PlusArchitects PLUSVILLA
Keep Reading, there’s plenty more…..

Since finding the PlusArchitects PlusVilla, I have been thinking of ways I could make my single wide look more like it. By adding a 10 foot addition the entire length of the home and giving the roof a small slant, it would be simple enough, perhaps a bit costly, but very doable. The roof utilizes the living roof concept which appeals to me, albeit the reinforcement to withstand the weight would make it a very expensive endeavor. The long and narrow frame resembles a double wide exactly. The inside has a  look that could easily be mimicked by a simple renovation. Take any double wide and remodel it to look like this and you’re bound to increase the equity and resale price.

The simplicity of the interior is very clean and eye catching, evoking its Scandinavian roots. Like the typical Scandinavian house, this container style home also features impressive use of wood and a balance of white and light. Here’s some more photos to get you inspired:

 

I think this is a wonderfully contemporary home (my favorite style) and a mobile home could very well be remodeled to look like it. You’ve already got the frame, all you have to do is box it in, open the front up with large windows and add a boxed in deck to make the underpinning disappear.

Mobile Home Living tries to bring you inspirations that are relevant to mobile and manufactured homes. I can always use more remodels, renovations and decorating inspirations to share though. If you find any online or are a proud owner yourself and you’d like to share, by all means send the photos through the contact page. A link and a post from a blog that is page ranked 2 and has over (drum roll please) 25,000 page views a month in only its 4th month online could help you, especially if you have a blog! Although I am truly humbled by the success of this blog and I can’t wait to see where it goes, I will always need your help to find sufficient material to post. Please keep me in mind if you happen to stumble upon a blog or some Facebook photos of mobile home material. I always try to get in touch with the owners via email before I post and I always credit the owners several times throughout the posts.

As always, thank you so very much for reading Mobile Home Living. Please like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and share us with your friends and family.

    Hi, I am moving to Vero Beach Florida some time in the future. I am looking for a small mobile home under 800 sq. feet that is contemporary. I like the idea of sliding glass doors so I can have a lot of light and fresh air. Are there any company’s that make sleek contemporary mobile homes? I am so tired of the typical wood paneled interior, dated type of mobile homes. Please let me know for any that are modern looking. Thanks.

      Hi Kathy! You can have any manufactured home you want built to your exact specification so that should get you the exact style you want. I’m a big fan of the contemporary look too and the park model homes are one of my favorites because they have so many windows and an upstairs bedroom! There’s a few beautiful homes here on MMHL that are styled in the more modern decor. Here’s a few:

    I LOVE this blog and think it is amazing. I own a mobile home park and all of the mobile homes in it so sometimes I do some remodeling. This is a very inspirational site and it is very well designed. I'll definitely be a regular:)

    Thank you Kathy! I got some new software called My Memories and it has
    all kinds of cool digi-art to play around with. I made that out of the
    paper. staples and shapes that they have. You can buy different kits
    and I'm hooked for sure!

    I have been sitting on these photos for a while, uncertain if it was
    really related to mobile homes but I couldn't help but notice the
    similarities and the fact that I couldn't stop daydreaming about
    making my house look like that. If only money grew on trees..been
    watching the news and hope your staying safe and warm where you are
    and don't have to worry about the flooding..thanks again!

    Like your new blog heading….I bet you created it…the artist and graphic designer that you are!!

    Sleek and warm modern is beautiful…the wood and how it's placed makes the place. Makes one want to be there.

    Thanks again for a great uplifting blog.
