These beautiful, modern park models are not like all of the other park model homes on the market. Self Build Timber Frame builds their park models homes with the same materials a regular home would be built, plus they create the same wall thickness and insulation as a regular home too. While doing all of this, they still maintain all of the other aspects that make their homes park models or mobile homes by definition. These are probably some of the best quality park model homes available right now. Because they are built using high-quality materials the buildings can last a lifetime and well over 100 years.
Many park models are made with lower quality materials that will deteriorate faster over time. With the walls in the Self Build Timber Frame homes, the walls are created to be 150mm thick, which is the same is a regular new house. They finish the walls with plaster-board and paint which also gives it more of a regular home feel. The chassis for the home is made out of thick timber beams instead of metal with wheels which gives the home more structural integrity. Plus, it makes them look more like a regular home too.
The company will create all custom home plans for their customers, and then they will deliver the structure and build it on site in two sections. All of the windows, doors and roofing will be installed, as well as the drywall, insulation and internal carpentry. The great thing is, they also do all of the plumbing and electric work too. All of the Kitchen and Bathroom fixtures and fittings are done to the customer’s style as well as the home decor too. The homes end up looking and feeling just like a regular home, except they may be more affordable to build. Prefab or Mobile Homes are any buildings that have been designed and constructed off-site but then are transported and set up on a property.
These homes are able to be taken apart in two divisible sections for road transport. They also have to be smaller than 65 feet by 23 feet. In the UK, these homes can still be referred to as caravans. In North America, there are special places for these types of homes to be built and parked, and rules that prohibit them from being built in certain places. So if you’re ever considering building a park model or mobile home make sure you find out what the rules are in your local area.
Many people build these smaller units as a space to have open for guests, or as a space to rent out on their property to make some extra income. They can also be used as full-time homes in the proper setting or vacation homes for part-time use. These smaller park model homes give people the option to build more affordably and in a shorter time frame meaning you could have your cabin up and ready to be used sooner than building a regular home from the ground up. Usually, the only thing the customer needs to have set up before the building arrives is the foundation and the land prepared for set up. That means if there is no sewage and electric on the property that the landowners need to install these utilities. Also, safe and accessible roads must be created for the company to transport the home to its space. Have a look at this and more of the park model homes offered by Self Build Timber Frame to see what style of home you would like for your own.
