Manufactured housing is the country’s most affordable home ownership option. For policymakers to prioritize zoning laws that allow more manufactured homes to be built, they needed to experience the quality of modern manufactured homes for themselves.
“They are energy-efficient. They are move-in ready. This may in fact be the future of housing. I’m just blown away. I want one right now,” said Secretary Marcia Fudge of the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development.
