A double wide is the most common type of modular home. They represent a happy medium between value-oriented single section homes and luxury multi-section prefab homes. Modular home builders offer double wide homes in a wide range of sizes — from 900 to over 2,000 square feet. They’re a great place to start for new homebuyers because, in many ways, they offer the best of both worlds. What’s more, double wide homes are moderately sized, making them a great fit for couples or small families, but also very affordable. Double wide homes are also fantastic floor plans to customize. If you don’t need a ton of space, you can use the money you save on upgrades and custom decor options in your new two section home.
