Experience Counts! With decades of experience, we can build to your specifications.
A Manufactured Home is a HUD home of one or more sections design mostly for manufactured communities, but is also permitted to be placed on a foundation outside a manufactured home community on private residential lots.
The biggest advantage is it is the least expensive factory-built product. However, appraising and financing the HCD manufactured on private land can be a challenge and in some cases you may receive a lower value and/or higher interest rate.

Real Property Home Building Checklist
- Site Inspection with Hybrid Homes:
Review site billability, review setbacks, zoning , utilities plan, review preliminary title repost for ownership without restrictions, verify correct owners together with any recorded easements affecting the property.
- Complete a Site Plan:
The site plan should show the lot APN#, the dimensions and total area together with elevations drawn to scale and showing the home located in its proper place. The site plan should also locate any easements, the setbacks, house envelope, the driveway and flatwork, power, septic or sewer on the plan.
- If Septic:
If there is a septic system planned, there will need to be a perc test; these results should be submitted as part of the permitting package.
- City Sewer:
If there is a municipal sewer system, there will be sewer connection fees and installation costs for the line that connects to the home. The cost of the connection will depend on the site conditions and the distance to the connection point. It is likely some of these fees will need to be paid at the time a permit is pulled.
Unless you have a completely flat lot, you will need to submit a drainage plan as part of your package when you apply for a permit. A drainage plan will require a topographical map of your site. The drainage plan will show the new contours of the site after it is graded and how on-site water will be distributed.
- A Boundary Survey:
A recorded boundary survey will be required as part of your permitting package. Later, prior to working on the site, the lot will need to be staked by a survey crew.
- Soil Tests:
A soils test is required in most projects and it is a good idea where there are expansive soils. This will depend on the conditions at your site.
- Will Serve Letter:
A “will serve” comes from the local municipal water company in the area of your lot unless you have your own well. As part of your permit package, you need a “will serve” letter that says the local water company is ready to supply water for your home on the site you have in mind.
You will need a minimum of 5 sets of house plans (and garage if needed) with a wet stamp by a civil engineer. Sets include all house plans, structural calcs, energy Title 24 calcs, and installation manuals for any equipment at the site or home.
- Impact Fees:
You can contact the local county or municipality in your area for information about the fees for processing a permit application and other impact fees. The impact fees are primarily for county services your home will enjoy when it is built. They include:
- Planning and permitting fees
- Building and Safety Fees
- School Fees
- Fire Department Fees
- Street improvement fees
