Schult Manufactured Homes
A manufactured home is built to HUD code and can be ready to move into in as little as three days. All walls are either textured drywall or vinyl-wrapped sheetrock. A manufactured home may be built "basement ready", but normally, it comes ready to be placed on an engineered "floating slab". It is anchored to the cement slab as mandated by the state of Minnesota.
A manufactured home, unless placed on a basement, should be skirted or finished off with cement block beneath the home. Cement products known as "Permablock" & "Stoneskirt" are also available for use on homes that are set on piers rather than on a floating concrete slab. They come in several colors to coordinate with your home's siding.
A manufactured home is generally a bit less expensive than a modular. A "mobile home" is a manufactured home. A "double-wide" is a manufactured home. Schult manufactured homes have high quality vinyl windows. Schult manufactured homes have optional hardwood trim available.
A manufactured home has an insulated floor and is finished off with a "belly" to protect the insulation and plumbing from the elements. The exterior pipes are protected from freezing with heat tape. It comes with a furnace, water heater, range and refrigerator. Other appliances such as dishwasher and microwave are also available as options.
A manufactured home has a steel frame. Schult builds its own frames. The standard roof pitch on a Schult manufactured home is 3/12. A 5/12 roof is also available on a Schult manufactured home.
