When you are looking to purchase a new home, you want it to be high quality, durable, and be functional for you and your family. Palm Harbor Homes aims to destroy manufactured home clichés and show that they can be just as spacious and luxurious as a typical brick and mortar property.

Misconception #1: Lack of Space

Generally, people tend to think of manufactured homes as cramped, small, and one-dimensional. However, Palm Harbor homes are nothing like the competition. Many of the spacious floor plans Palm Harbor has to choose from that can exceed 3000 sq ft. Many of these floor plans boast large open spaces and high vaulted ceilings to create an impressive feel that breaks all existing stereotypes of manufactured homes.
