A great start makes for lasting value

“Salt and sugar look the same, but one taste tells you they are very different.” Well, it’s the same with manufactured homes in terms of quality and design: manufactured homes are not by any other name the same in performance and value.

Isn’t it true that those who carry a passion to achieve something that benefits others are truly unique? There are many new technologies that have improved our lives but nothing overshadows the value of a good home that offers custom features, is part of a community and is dedicated to lifestyle quality. The Temple Companies, a family owned and operated company have brought home ownership solutions to the marketplace since 1955.

Every home design begins with fine quality, affordable homes to families of all sizes and ages throughout the country. The Temple Companies owns and manages more than 38 manufactured home communities with over 10,000 home sites nationwide.

A manufactured home is the term that describes any home built to HUD Code standards, adopted by Congress in 1974. Manufactured homes are constructed in a controlled indoor environment and are then placed on the property. By definition, a “Mobile home” was the term used to describe homes built before June 15, 1976 when the HUD code went into effect and after 1953. As home building quality and technology improved, it became necessary to use new terminology to describe the difference between travel trailers and the new permanent, factory-built homes being produced.

The realities of living in tough economies
In addition to higher housing costs, utilities and groceries are increasing at an astounding rate. This isn’t new. In fact the Temples foresaw the difficult times ahead and began creating exciting solutions in manufactured home design to help people enjoy quality of life in a home.
