Our next manufactured home in our New Mobile Home Design Series is the Sonora II. Like most manufactured home models, this model is only available in a few regions. Regardless, it’s a gorgeous home full of rustic charm that is definitely worth a look.
Unlike some of the more recent new mobile home design models, the Sonora II features a completely open floor plan. The living room, kitchen, dining room and even the family room all flow within one big space. If you are looking for an open floor concept than this is a great design.
We both agree that the kitchen is a bit small but for a small family or couple, it would work fine. We both liked the built-in in the dining room. Great place to display your fine china or keep your serving ware out of the way when you aren’t entertaining.
We have all seen how the rustic farmhouse look is taking over home decor. The master bedroom suite in this new mobile home design is a great example of that. The plank walls in both the bedroom and bath, along with the faux wood tiles in the shower all pull together to create that lovely the rustic charm.
Many of us aren’t fans of the big bathtub but it just doesn’t seem to go away in new mobile home design. I’m not sure having a tub that is only used once or twice a month is the best use of space but if you love baths this would be perfect.
They separated ‘his and her’ sinks with the tub and added plenty of storage space around each area. There is also an interesting vanity area set up beside the shower.
From the images we gathered online, the other bedrooms are pretty basic. There is an option according to the floor plan for a 4th bedroom which would be ideal if you have a bigger family or need an in-home office.
The mudroom (or utility room) is pretty awesome. It is a large space with plenty of storage and a mop sink. There is also a great bench and coat and shoes storage center in the room that is built in.
In our article, 10 Smart Upgrades for your New Manufactured Home, we talk about which upgrades are worth the extra money. Some of our suggestions include better doors, windows, and insulation, and a higher roof pitch. This new mobile home design has those upgrade options, like the wood grain front door and lap siding with vertical board & batten siding that’s available.
We also noticed on the website they were offering a package that included upgraded insulation, windows and a programmable thermostat for the heating and cooling system. Most dealers offer some sort of package like this so be sure to ask for anything – the only thing they can do is say no. You never know they may be able to do until you ask.
As you can see from the floorplan there are also some interior upgrades available, including fireplaces and vaulted ceilings. That’s one of the best things about buying a manufactured home today, the ability to customize the home just like you were building a site built home.
We hope you have been enjoying looking at the new mobile home design series as much as we have! Tell us your thoughts about the Sonora II in the comment section.
