What Can I Customize On My Manufactured Home?

Manufactured and modular homes have made major strides in their field over the past several decades, but especially since the 1960s. 

From exterior elements to interior styles, there’s a level of customization to fit every taste. 


Maybe you’ve always dreamed of having a pantry with a sliding barn door, or integrated appliances, or even exposed interior beams. 


We want to put you in the driver’s seat so that you can bring your Pinterest board home to life.


Below you’ll find just a few examples of how Baird can help you customize your way into your dream home, all while staying within your budget!

Exterior Features 


With advancements in manufactured housing development, the buyer has the option to customize their new house in many areas.


The manufacturers have been working tirelessly to offer something for everyone. With that said, there are even log style homes hitting the market.


You can also explore options of adding sections (also known as ‘additions’) to your home, like additional bedrooms or a garage.


Many new homes offer porches and decks, making it possible to expand your living space from the indoors, out! 


There are so many options available today, many manufactured and modular homes fool people into thinking they’re site built houses.
