Amenities

Wall-to-wall carpet, hardwood floors, ENERGY STAR appliances, top-of-the line fixtures, 10-foot ceilings, ceramic tile. You would think your were in Derek Jeter's McMansion in Tampa, Fla. Actually, all the amenities you can find in a site-built home can also be added to manufactured homes. The only difference is that workers install everything in the house before it reaches your property. Some manufactured homes have walk-in closets, jetted tubs and soaker bathtubs, and others come equipped with fireplaces, bay windows and gabled roofs. And it's common for homes to have more than one bathroom outfitted with double sinks and sunken tubs.
