I work for one of the manufactured and modular home builder's in the us. Palm Harbor Homes and Discovery Custom Homes. Yes there is lots of problems with zoning for manufactured homes. In Florida today the only way you can purchase Man/Home w/land is have about 20% down with good credit or already own property with equity. We are making a large turn in our business to the Modular frame home. They are built to the state building code the same as any site built home, but because our homes our going to go down the road at 70mph and be picked up with a crane and swung around 50' in the air, they are built stonger. We use 30% more building material than a typical site built. Our homes are Energy Star rated by the EPA and can be built to withstand up to 175mph wind loads as required for the Florida Keys. There have been quit a few articals written in just the past several weeks about our product being used by a developer Brown Stone who is building two communities in Fla. Tampa and Apopka. you can look up the artical at the They are being billed as Huricane Resistant homes. and will sell from $600k-1Mil. Safty isn't just for the rich. Our Modular homes will start from the 120's + property. As a company we have not lost a home in a huricane since 1986, surviving Andrew, Katrina, and Rita to name the big ones. Check us out or contact me at there is a link on the Palm Harbor site for Discovery Custom Homes which is one of our modular companies.
