Impressive Interior Photos of Park Model Cabins, Wow!
When thinking of different types of homes to live in, park model cabins may be of interest. In this time salaries and wages seem to be stagnant while home prices and the cost of living soars. With no end in sight to economic fluctuations, people are seeking alternative options for housing. It wasnít too long ago that the average middle or upper-middle-class person could afford a second home to use as a vacation home or a cabin. As time has gone on, this is becoming less likely which is why options like park model cabins and RVs have become such a great option for a cabin at the lake or a second home. These prefab units create an option for people who want to have a second home at the lake to use in the summer, or even for people who want to use one as a permanent residence. There are many benefits to owning a park model and the first great thing about them is their affordability. A modular park home can cost as little as $20,000 at their starting price. So for the price of a newer car, you could own your own a home. There are park models that are built on wheels that make them easy to move around as needed. So if a person wants to spend the summers in the north and winters in the south with all of the comforts of home, they can do so.
Park model homes also give the owner plenty of space and all of the comforts of home in a compact size, so itís great for people who are first-time home-owners or people who want to downsize, and of course, those who want a second home. Usually, park models will be around 400 square feet in size, and the floor plans include a living room, kitchen, bathroom and at least one bedroom. More space can be added onto the homes, and some of them include loft areas, decks and storage spaces. When the unit is parked, you can build a deck and also use the space under the deck as extra storage for tools and outdoor gear. Some park home owners also build sun rooms onto their home, or a screened in porch to keep out the bugs in the summer time.
People who are purchasing a pre-existing park home thatís already in a community will find that purchasing their park model will be easier than buying a regular home. They wonít have to pay property taxes since itís a land lease situation. Also, for most park home communities, itís very easy to sell your park model when it comes time, plus, you will gain the appreciation value the longer you live in it. Park model homes are also built very well and have to pass different tests to prove their ability to stand up to harsh weather and storms, so you donít have to worry about them being less capable of withstanding the elements. Plus, they are also built light enough that they can be moved onto another property if need be. Many people who live in park models love the sense of community that comes with living in a park model area. There are some great communities in the United States and Canada that provide a nice living situation for people, some of the communities are age-restricted in certain areas, though. If you don't need all of the space that a traditional home offers, then perhaps a park model home could be for you.
