When you think of a residential park or mobile home community, bland, boxy double-wides might come to mind. However, West Coast Homes has created a park model pre-fab that’s anything but bland in design. Keeping with the traditional footprint of a mobile home (long and rectangular), their park model offers a cottage feel with the option to add a loft and deck turning a mobile home into a cozy cabin.
Residential Park Model
The four models they currently offer are similar in layout with one bedroom and one bath but are priced as slightly different levels starting at $125,000 for the base model San Juan. All start at 400 sq. feet in size with the option to add a 250 sq. foot loft or a roof-top deck. The loft can even be turned into another bedroom or two.
If you don’t have the land or don’t want to live in a residential park, West Coast Homes is building these cottages at Lake Whatcom outside of Bellingham, Washington. They’re advertising these as vacation homes, but could be a great place to retire at a fairly affordable price (starting at $330,000).
Or, find your own plot of land for these adorable cottages.
If you’re looking for something a bit larger, West Coast Homes is also a distributor of Lindal Cedar Homes which are quite stunning. They offer an A-frame model (or Prow), Craftsman, modern and traditional.
Have you thought about building a vacation home? What about retiring in something smaller?
