Looking at park model homes are a great choice when it comes to buying a home. In fact, park models like this one from Compact Cottage have been around as early as the 1920s. At first, the houses were just trailer coaches for people who wanted a place to sleep at a campsite. Also, they were made to house the factory workers during World War 2 and once the soldiers returned home to America, they would but these prefab homes for their families. Since they didn’t have a ton of money to buy a home, this was an affordable way to provide themselves and their family with some housing until they got back on their feet again. As time went on, the Department of Housing and Urban Development in the US changed the classification of the units that were once known as trailers, like houses. The designs became more stylish and well made, with more accommodations and normal household items, and they were also made larger too.
The styles for park model homes has really changed a lot over the years. These days, we aren’t just seeing them in mobile home parks, or trailer parks. They are starting to be built within neighborhoods with other conventional homes in some cases too. The designs have come a long way, and they look really stylish and modern, like this lovely park model mobile home. It looks just like a regular house with a contemporary design. It includes lots of windows throughout the home which are especially important to add to a smaller home, as they create the illusion of more space, so you don’t feel too closed in. The park models are also quite a bit bigger than tiny houses on wheels which usually has to be only 8.5 feet wide, up to 30 feet long and 13.5 feet tall. The park models don’t have to follow these rules because they will be delivered by a company who will obtain permits to take them on the road. The tiny houses on wheels are highway legal as long as their measurements fit within the highway guidelines.
