Although Adventure Homes has been in the manufactured homes industry for one decade, its superb craftsmanship has impressed countless clients. At Baird Homes, our partnership with them has provided helpful insights into what exactly makes their products outstanding.
What Makes Adventure Homes Exceptional?
Adventure Homes is an award-winning manufacturer of both modular and manufactured homes. Although they’re both built-in controlled environments, there are slight differences between the two. Modular homes are built to state regulation, and when placed on a permanent foundation, fixed to the property it stands on.
Manufactured homes are built in the factory and built to federal regulation. When placing a manufactured home on site, the home is spotted on the carrier frame and a cosmetic block wall or skirting is placed around single and double section manufactured homes.
- Financing Options
Just as with site-built houses, you can purchase Adventure Homes’ modular and manufactured homes through various financing options.
Financing is easier if you’re a landowner since you have a tangible form of collateral. Other than traditional mortgages, you can access federal-insured loans like VA, USDA, and FHA.
If you don’t own the land, then the best option is chattel or home-only financing. Most lenders ask for a down payment, among other conditions, before advancing loans. A home-only loan also limits the kind of home improvements you can make around your manufactured or modular home.
- Land and Foundation
Baird Homes will guide you on the site preparation process that ensures your modular or manufactured house from Adventure Homes is installed professionally.
For manufactured housing, site access and availability will need to be evaluated. Since they’re delivered whole, we must ensure there are no obstacles along the route to the installation site. Other land and foundation preparation that can be done at extra costs:
- Drilling wells if needed.
- Installing septic systems.
- Building a basement for your modular home.
- Clearing foliage and grading the site for drainage purposes.
- Design and Floor Plans
Due to high-quality designs, most people can’t tell the difference between manufactured homes and their stick-built counterparts. Adventure Homes’ adherence to the highest industry standards has been recognized by their clients, peers, and industry regulators.
This has seen them win the Manufacturer of the Year Award for four consecutive years since 2016. Their designs also give you a lot of flexibility in regards to floor plans. Floor plans with a variety of bathrooms, bedrooms, and sizes you want. Optional floor plan features include fireplaces, stainless appliances, tile showers, and more.
- Maintenance and Inspection
Other than the HUD building code, Adventure Homes conforms with all relevant state and federal guidelines. You’ll need permits and inspections for every step of your home acquisition. This begins with presenting your home and site’s blueprints for evaluation and approval.
Other types include factory, power, sewer, water, and installation inspections. Some jurisdictions also require you to perform a soil engineering test before grading approval. This makes it easier to sell your house if you need to, or apply for future loans. Permits, inspections, and permissions are a necessity in each process.
Regular maintenance ensures the durability of your investment. Essential maintenance tips include knowing the exact size of your house and making sure it’s always level.
Other maintenance tips are:
- Repairing holes in your home’s skirting.
- Fixing damage around furnaces or water heaters.
- Regular plumbing inspection and repair to avoid water damage.
