Are you considering the purchase of a home? Particularly in view of today’s real estate market, your most affordable option is very likely that of a manufactured home. Today, they are built in an energy efficient manner with sustainable materials and apply standards that are new and improved over those applied decades ago. Manufactured homes are currently a highly desirable option for homebuyers – no matter if they are families, singles, couples, seniors, middle-aged, or young adults.

You might be wondering about manufactured home sizes and what’s available. Though sizes can vary – as well as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms – there are some size standards by which mobile/manufactured homes are built.

Average Size

Again, there are many sizes, bedroom numbers, bathroom numbers, etc. where manufactured homes are considered. But the average is as follows:

  • 18 feet in width
  • 80 feet in length
  • 13.5 feet high

The sections in which a manufactured home is transported often come in under the measurements stated above. They are transported in sections for several reasons.

How Big Do You Need Your Manufactured Home to Be?

The following are sizes of manufactured homes that are currently available, and the living space contained within:

  • Single wide – Here, you will typically find 1 to 2 bathrooms, 1 to 2 bedrooms, and a living space of 500 to 1200 square feet.
  • Double wide – For this size, there are most often 2 bathrooms, 2 to 3 bedrooms, and a living space consisting of 1000 to 2200 square feet.
  • Triple wide – This kind of manufactured home often features 2 or more bathrooms, 3 or more bedrooms, and a living space in excess of 2000 square feet.

As you can see, no matter the size of your household, there is likely a manufactured home perfect for your situation.

Building Manufactured Homes

Today’s manufactured homes are made in a controlled setting and are state-of-the-art. What drives the size of the sections that make up these homes? Safe transport is a major consideration – what can be safely moved regarding length, width, and height.

These homes are installed on-site and are perfect for almost any situation. Consider what you or your family needs when selecting the best one for your purposes. They each have unique living space, costs, designs, and layouts.

You may notice a difference in the ceiling heights if you compare today’s manufactured homes (9 feet) to those built decades ago (7 to 8 feet). Today’s ceilings are higher than previously constructed mobile/manufactured homes, courtesy of HUD regulations.
