Design Your Own Custom Mobile Home

Home buyers often overlook the great value offered by a manufactured home that can be customized to fit their lifestyle. Buyers can choose from hundreds of designs, but they can also create their own manufactured home design by customizing any of our floor plans. Our goal is to provide you with a home that will enable you to feel that you have personalized your home rather than buying a stock model that may not provide the comfort and convenience you would like to have. You can also combine your ideas with the existing manufactured home designs.

Design Your Own Manufactured Home

We recognize that our customers have a unique set of requirements for a new home. Our manufactured home designs allow you to incorporate these requirements into the design of the floor plan and the interior decor. Building your own mobile home by your personal touch in designs is just as important as the home itself.

When you start to think about owning a home, it’s natural to start visualizing the features and styles you really want. It feels amazing to be able to fulfill your ideas and build your own manufactured home by your standards.

You can select your favorite features from the models you like. Just search and find one of your beloved mobile home designs and forget about everything else. Build a manufactured home of your dreams with us. 

Homes Direct doesn't believe that any one model can meet all of your needs and wishes. This is why Homes Direct offers many customization options. Our manufacturers are capable of making the home design you want rather than just producing standard models that offer you no options and no opportunity to make the home the one you really want. Our professional designers will help achieve your requirements by working with you to create the floor plan you want.

A custom built manufactured home begins with your ideas about how you want your home to be built. The Homes Direct website has 481 manufactured home models, and you can see the floor plan for each by clicking on the picture of the home. The floor plan page will give you information about the square footage of the home as well as the overall dimensions of the home. Homes Direct also has over 100 models set up on its 12 locations. You can see how these floor plans come together and how you might want to make changes.


The design you select must be reviewed with the local government’s zoning office since there may be criteria applicable to the kind of home design that can be set on the lot you have chosen. 

Even though custom built mobile homes have many advantages they also come with disadvantages. If you want to customize a mobile home be aware of the following.

  • Building a custom mobile home is a little expensive. In fact, they may have a heavy price tag attached to them depending on the features and products chosen.
  • Needs to go through a local government zoning office.
  • Takes more time and sometimes the needed features are hard to find.
  • If you want to put your custom mobile home for sale it can be a bit low in price.

Sometimes customized homes decrease in value quickly, in comparison to traditional homes.

If you plan to set your home in a manufactured home park, then you will need to review your selection with the park management before finalizing the purchase.

There are two design aspects to our homes. One is the exterior design, and the other aspect is the interior design.

The Exterior Designs of Our Homes

Some buyers would like to have a second story, and we can manufacture home with this feature. The mobile home layout can be changed according to your wishes.

Some of our models have a modern, sleek design that incorporates the straight line concept with windows placed to provide plenty of light while enhancing the modern design of the home.

Other models have a more traditional look, and some have front porches with decorative posts. Some of our models have elevated front porches to match the height of the home from the ground.

We have models that are designed to fit the width of the lot. The width of these models ranges up to 70 feet. Other models are designed to be set into the depth of the lot, and they also range up to 70 feet in length.

One prominent characteristic of many of our models is the elevations some of which include more design features to give the homes a prominent style instead of a plain appearance. Or, we have homes without any external appearance enhancements.
