How To Make Your Mobile Home Look Exactly Like A Traditional Built Home
A homeowner can own a mobile home which looks exactly like a site-built home- pretty affordable too. In order for a mobile home owner to achieve that, the following tips may be of great help;
Upgrading your home especially if it is a newly constructed mobile home will definitely add value to your property.
Upgrades can be in the form of a higher roof pitch, larger doors and eaves extensions around the home. A higher roof pitch will help snow and rain to slide off easier as well.
Extending the Eaves will help keep water away from the home’s windows and siding.
Installing larger doors internally and externally makes your home look more like a site built home. Common examples are aluminum doors that are 32″ wide and 74″ to 78″ tall.
Installing your mobile home over a basement foundation will make it look like a site built home. There are new techniques which are more affordable for the average buyer. There is definitely going to be an added living space when this is done which is a big plus. There will be certain modifications for the basement area to be accessible; luckily, our technicians can assist in handling that.
A garage can be constructed beside your home, not necessarily attached to the home. Creating an entryway into your home from the garage would definitely create a site-built feel.
