Choosing the Right Floorplan

Buying a manufactured or modular home can be an exciting experience, but there are many factors to consider before making a purchase like … choosing the perfect floorplan! When choosing a floorplan, it’s important to think about several different factors including your family size, lifestyle, and personal preferences.

Determine Your Budget

Before you start looking at floorplans, it’s important to determine your budget. This will help you narrow down your options and also important to factor in the cost of site preparation, installation, and any necessary upgrades.

Determine Your Needs

Make a list of your must-haves and prioritize them. It could be anything from a large island, a pantry, or a gas stove. Use this list as a guide when choosing a floorplan and kitchen design.

Consider the Size and Shape of the Lot

 The size and shape of your lot can impact the choice of your floor plan.

Consider Your Family Size and Lifestyle

The size of your family and your lifestyle should play a big role in choosing the right floorplan. If you have a large family or frequently entertain guests, you may want a spacious open floorplan with plenty of living space. If you work from home, you may want a home office or a designated workspace.

Think About Your Personal Preferences

Your personal preferences should also be taken into account when choosing a floorplan. Do you prefer open concept? Grouped or separated bedroom layout? Do you need extra storage space?


Finally, keep in mind that many manufactured and modular floorplans offer the option to customize to fit your specific needs. If you’re having trouble finding the perfect floorplan, consider working with your builder to make customizations that better align with your lifestyle and preferences.

  • The Back Kitchen – The kitchen is where we entertain so the Back Kitchen is where the counter clutter goes (coffee maker, toaster, blender, etc.) Also cooking prep before and clean up after. Second freezer space for freezer or additional refrigerator since we never have enough storage for beverages.
  • Power Pantry – How we shop today is in bulk. Power Pantry provides bulk storage and can reduce the need for kitchen overheads, allowing the kitchen to be more streamlined and contemporary. 
  • Welcome Home Valet – Entry into your home should be an inviting event. The Welcome Home Valet says – “Welcome home it’s time to kick back and relax”. This area provides a location to store you personal belongings (coat, purse, back-pack, shoes, cell phone, keys, etc). After a stressful day from work or school no one wants to enter past a stack of dirty laundry.
  • Connect Laundry – Let’s put the laundry where it makes the most sense; connected to the master closet and close to secondary bedrooms. Shorten the chores by taking clothes directly from the dryer to the closet or removing the wrinkles from that shirt for an evening event.
  • Pet Palace – A majority of homeowners are also pet owners. The Pet Palace provides a place for bathing your pet at an elevated height. It also serves as the location for storing pet “stuff”, pet bed or crate, pet feeding location or even litter box hide-away.
  • Pocket Office – Busy households need a space everyone can use. Working from home or an area for the kids to do homework; the Pocket Office provides a private area to get away and concentrate on the task at hand or do some gaming without distracting others.
  • Clean – Up Crew – Whether you’re a mechanic, builder, farmer, or hard worker that just needs that place to clean up after a busy day of work. Located directly off the side entry the “Clean-Up Crew” bath provided a private bath to clean-up prior in entering into the common areas.
  • Winter Organizer – Located directly off the Welcome Home Valet the Winter Organizer is a place for all your winter gear. Hunters have a place to store their camo and the kids have a place for snow gear to dry. Shelves for storing boots, scarves, hats & gloves, and a coat rod for coats, snow pants, and overalls. Keep everything in one place!
  • Entertainer For entertaining guests or family convenience the beverage center may serve as a coffee bar, beverage center, or for wine storage. It’s a serve-self area for everyone.
  • Hobbyist All hobbies require space! The Hobbyist offers countertop space for creating, cabinets for storing it all away, and a sink for rinsing molds, brushes, and more.
