Environmental Impact of Manufactured Housing

Did you know that Manufactured Homes adhere to the same state, local, and regional building codes as site-built houses?

We are driven by our mission to establish clean, safe, and engaging communities where people are happy to live and proud to call home. To help achieve this goal, we collaborate with our manufacturers, who employ innovative and sustainable construction methods to build our homes.

Our new homes are fabricated in climate-controlled factories, which offers the advantage of protection from weather elements like rain, snow, and wind, resulting in shorter construction times compared to site-built homes. A “custom home” constructed on-site is typically exposed to the elements for approximately 90 days. Severe weather exposure leads to a near certainty that the home will not receive adequate protection from the elements, likely leading to accelerated deterioration and a shortened lifespan. Moreover, factory-built homes adhere to and often surpass, the same state, local, and regional building codes as site-built homes. They consistently meet or exceed the high standards and regulations established by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Furthermore, factory construction techniques can integrate advancements in energy efficiency and disaster resilience that surpass site-built homes.

During the manufacturing process, most of our new homes undergo almost 20 quality inspections and are engineered to withstand hurricane-force winds and earthquakes for eight hours during the transportation to the site. Additionally, all our manufacturers install Energy Star-certified appliances, which our customers tell us help save on their energy bills.

Our manufactured housing communities help reduce our carbon footprint by eliminating the need for hundreds of trips to the job site, unlike traditional site-built homes that require numerous journeys to transport all the necessary building materials and equipment. Factory-built homes also eliminate unnecessary waste as materials can be easily recycled or reused. Scraps and leftovers from a single site-built construction project generate waste that requires up to six trips of full dumpsters for disposal in the local dump.

Through our commitment to collaboration, innovation, and sustainable practices, we strive to provide our residents with exceptional homes and contribute positively to the environment and communities we serve.
