One of the greatest things about mobile home living is the unlimited potential that manufactured homes have. You can change and build onto mobile homes just as you would a site built home so the sky is the limit.
These 3 unusual manufactured homes are perfect examples of the unlimited potential of all mobile and manufactured homes.
Legendary Log Home
Many families opt to live in an affordable mobile home on-site while building their dream home. It’s a smart way to DIY a dream home. I don’t know if that happened while they built this epic log cabin but the chances are good.
If you walked around this log home you would never know there was a mobile home involved. It’s a gorgeous log home with 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, and 2 kitchens. Yes, 2 kitchens.
No sign of a manufactured home here.
Or here in this kitchen.
Definitely not here…
Here we go…this is definitely a kitchen in a manufactured home!
Other than the listing saying this home is a “manufactured home” I wouldn’t have known.
I can’t help but wonder if they did this to save money on taxes. If it is “just a manufactured home with an addition” it wouldn’t be taxed as much as a site-built home.
I have so many questions! Like, which way is the manufactured home in this layout? The listing states this home is a mobile/manufactured
The listing states:
Gorgeous cedar home that’s a must see! Located in the heart of the river valley and wine country with views of Mount Magazine. Home has 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms with a 30X30 shop, shop has a bathroom and laundry hookups.. Home features 2 living areas and 2 kitchens. Large master upstairs with a deck to gaze at the mountains. There’s also a second home that could be remodeled.
- Mobile Manufactured
- Lot Size: 15.0 acres
- Built in 2001
I like to think that that the homeowners were living in the single wide while building their dream log home but they liked their manufactured home so much they decided to incorporate it into the home.
You can buy this home in Ozark, Arkansas for $284,284. The listing is on Trulia.com here.
Two Homes in One
Some people can get attached to their manufactured home. So much so, that they can’t stand the thought of it being pulled away after they’ve built their dream home.
It’s not unusual for mobile home owners to place their home over a basement. Adding a basement is a great way to add extra space without having to add a separate addition. However, these homeowners went above and beyond, they added a complete second home to their existing home.
Brick Beauty Has it All
This brick beauty is stunning!
The owner built under and beside their original double wide to create a gorgeous home with a 3 bay garage.
The owner also bricked the entire home to give it a cohesive look.
The garage is just as large as the double wide.
The back porch is awesome!
These 3 unusual manufactured homes prove that you can turn your manufactured home into anything you want.
You can likely pay a much lower tax bill by using a mobile or manufactured home as the foundation of a larger, more luxurious, home since many places refuse to reclassify a mobile home property into real property unless the owner specifically requests it. Taxes on mobile homes are usually always cheaper than real property.
As always, thank you for reading Mobile Home Living!
