Most manufactured homes are a single story, but did you know that several companies also make two story manufactured homes? At the MHVillager we think the world of the manufactured home companies that are out there building better and better homes. Not only do they make traditional single story mobile homes, but many have all kinds of new and interesting options including those two story manufactured homes or modular homes.
The factory-built two story homes come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The most common are modular homes. In this case, the components of the home are built in a factory and then assembled on site. However, there also are a whole variety of smaller “tiny” homes and park models that aren’t strictly two story, but have upstairs sleeping lofts and/or balconies. Let’s take a look at some of these fun two story options. And, as always, if you want to learn more or see more photos, click the manufacturers’ name in the links. The link will take you straight to their website where you can get more information on two story homes and the other products they offer.
Two Story Modular Homes
Let’s start with some traditional two story modular homes. If you own your own land, these might be for you.
This is the Fitzgerald by Champion Homes. We’ve featured a number of Champion homes on the MHVillager blog because they offer a wide variety of floorplans for modular and manufactured homes. Included in this are several two story modular homes. The Fitzgerald has four bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms and comes in at 2,520 square feet. You can check out the floorplan of the home on their website: www.championhomes.com.
Here’s another two story modular home by Champion, The Bristow. This one is a little smaller than the Fitzgerald, with three bedrooms and2 1/2 baths. It is 1,920 square feet.
We’re loving those gorgeous porch columns and the attached garage! This is really a lovely home.
Champion Homes aren’t the only manufactured home company that also makes two story modular homes. Palm Harbor has some as well. Take a look at the Greenbrier I by Palm Harbor:
The Greenbrier I is available only in Delaware, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia and Georgia. It is not available in Florida. And it has three bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and comes in at 1,978 square feet. Just look at that wraparound porch!
One more modular two story home, before we move on… Here is the Arlington by Fairmont Homes.
The Arlington is a little smaller than our previous homes. It has two bedrooms and two baths. And it is a total of 1,227 square feet. Like the other two story homes we are highlighting, check out the manufacturer’s website for more details, floorplan options, and to see if it is available in your area. Here is a link to the Arlington on Fairmont’s website.
Tiny Homes and Park Models with Second Story Lofts
Speaking of going a little smaller, let’s take a look at the new line of park model RVs and other small homes that are hitting the market. Again, these are homes made by traditional factory-built housing companies, so they know how to build a great home at a great price. If you are curious about what makes a park model versus a tiny home, we just published a very popular article on that on the blog: The Difference between a Tiny House and a Park Model.
So, let’s take a look at these gorgeous little homes from Cavco. I have to tell you though, the manufacturer for these is in Arizona, so they aren’t available up here in the northern climates yet. Still, they have a great look and are something to look forward to!
More information, and more photos of the other two story homes they offer, can be found on the Cavco website.
Athens Park Model RVs are also built in California, Arizona, Florida, Texas, and Nebraska. You can head over to the Athens website to see more photos and what is available in your area.
Not A Two Story Manufactured Home, But Still Cool
Alright, I admit, it’s not a two story home, but I had to include this one, if only because it shows the huge variety of manufactured home options out there. The outdoor space is amazing, and as you can see here, and from our lead photo for this blog. Click the link to check out more about the Riviera from Palm Harbor:
The Riviera is designed for coastal living. The 360-degree views is that of a second story home, right? Of course the home doesn’t have to be on pilings, but being that it is offered in Florida and other coastal locales, it’s a great option. You can see more photos of this home on the Palm Harbor website.
And just for fun – there is this great lakeside home! Okay, it’s the home has only one story, but the porch has two stories!
This home is by Homes of Merit. They offer homes through retailers and communities throughout Florida, and parts of Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, and Louisiana. Cute, isn’t? Can’t you just see sitting on that rooftop porch enjoying the view?
