About our Homes
At Kuncanowet Hills we sell Skyline Homes, which are quality homes built for the northeast. Unlike the original "trailers and trailer parks", where a home would depreciate over time, a Skyline Home investment will grow as time goes by. Our sales records show that these New England built quality homes will appreciate in value with time, accordingly, with the real estate market. With proper maintenance your home will remain like new for your lifetime and beyond. Additional benefits of our homes are the exceptional insulation and energy efficient furnaces, which will provide comfortable and inexpensive heat.
What's the difference between Mobile Home, Manufactured Home, and Modular?
Modular homes are built in sections at a factory, conforming to all state, local or regional building codes at their destinations. Sections are transported to the building site on truck beds, then joined together by local contractors. Local building inspectors check to make sure a modular home's structure meets requirements and that all finish work is done properly. Modular homes have the same longevity as site-built homes, increasing in value over time.
One significant difference in modular construction over site built is the ability to construct the home in a controlled environment. No rain, snow or cold weather, your home never sees the New England weather until it is finished and delivered to your site.
Manufactured homes are what were formerly known as mobile homes or trailers. The new manufactured homes have numerous and innovative construction upgrades that bring them closer in quality to site built homes than ever before. For instance older homes had 2 x 3 exterior walls and now have 2 x 6 exterior walls with insulation in walls and roofs equivalent to or better than site built homes.
They are built in a factory setting and transported to the building site on their own wheels. Manufactured housing is generally less expensive than site built and modular homes.
Building inspectors check the work done locally (electric hook up, etc.) but are not required to approve the structure. Manufactured homes conform to a Federal building code, called the HUD code, rather than to building codes at their destinations.
Manufactured homes are starting to look more like site-built homes every day but without the big price tag associated with site-built homes. Our Skyline Manufactured (mobile) homes offer a wide variety of custom home options with many of the same features typically found in stick-built homes. You can customize your home with practically unlimited amenities, inside and out, including living and dining rooms with vaulted or flat ceilings, skylights, fireplaces, modern large kitchens with pantries and premium appliances. Large bedrooms with walk-in closets, bathrooms with whirlpool tubs, ceramic tile, hardwood floors, and energy efficient windows, allowing sunshine and abundant light. Sheds, garages, decks, patios and attached garages for the outside of your home. Skyline's superior custom homes have made them a leader in the manufactured housing industry since their inception in 1951.
New Hampshire State Law now requires that Manufactured Homes be installed by a licensed contractor, on a concrete slab, something we have already been doing for 25 years.
All our homes can be green certified with the Energy Star Rating.
