3 Mobile Homes For Under £85,000

Continuing Our Popular Mini Series Of Feature Articles This Week With 3 Mobile Homes Under £85,000

"pete cossie"Note from Pete:Sometimes the idea of a self-build log home or a SIPS Panel Home may just be a little out of reach when it comes to either obtaining planning permission or by the time you price up the cost of land, foundations and building your home you may stretch your budget a little too far.

The perfect solution may well be a mobile home! Now before you think “there is no way I’d live a mobile home” I want to stress that apart from being built on a chassis (and no it does not have to have wheels, it can be sited on a concrete slab foundation just as you would a house, you would not know you were in a mobile home when you see all the “mod-cons” and design touches that come as standard with a modern mobile home.

I was speaking to someone at the NEC National Home and Renovation Show the other week and they were telling me that even Grand Designs Kevin Mc Cloud fell foul of the local planners who insisted he build a mobile home on his land not a “permanent building” so he dug a hole … built a chassis and then built his home on the chassis!

I haven’t checked that story out for myself yet but for 3 perfectly good reasons to think about mobile homes in a whole new way here are current top 3 …

Feature Article: 3 Mobile Homes For Under £85,000

Introducing The New & Exclusive CLL Contemporary Residential Mobile Home

"CLL Contemporary" "CLL Contemporary Mobile Home"

Based on the stunning SIPS Panel Home (pictured above) we are proud to introduce the New CLL Contemporary cedar clad mobile home built on a chassis to comply with The Mobile Home Act.

Completely re-designed for residential use to include a utility room and bi-fold doors this stunning new mobile home was launched at the National Home Building & Renovation Show in March 2013.

Perfect for:


Below is an idea for a two bedroom CLL Contemporary floor plan …

"CLL Contemporary"



Custom Built Using The Contemporary Log Living Insulated Panel System In Telford, Shropshire

You will usually find that your Local Planning Authority is always looking for something that is architecturally different, well designed and built to last (these are not built like log cabins or summer houses).

All our CLL Contemporary Log Living mobile homes have probably the highest levels of insulation available in a mobile homes and we include all of the following as standard:-

  • Choice of kitchen units and appliances*high quality mid-range kitchen (choose from ultra contemporary or traditional)
  • High quality bathroom suite plus en-suite to the master bedroom
  • Plumbing & Standard Electrics included
  • Electric heating system
  • Aluminium bi-fiold doors and double glazed windows
  • Cedar cladding and timber chassis
  • All are custom-built with you in mind

There is a trend at the moment in the Guest House / Bed and Breakfast industry for contemporary accommodation and whenever there is luxury involved people are willing to pay that little bit extra.

The downlighters over the decking is a very popular feature and when everything is custom-built you can add all sorts of extra gadgets and gizmos if you wish. *obviously these will be extra costs involved but it costs nothing to ask!

Adding lots of light to the main living areas, it really is the perfect guest accommodation / holiday home / granny annexe .. all completely delivered in a matter of weeks from the time you order.

With wider doorways and the open plan layout these contemporary layouts make for a very wheelchair-friendly environment too.

The best results are always produced when we work in partnership with you, especially when it comes to obtaining Planning Permission if that is required.

The Ever Popular Olympia *A Favourite Model For Granny Annexes

Introducing Our Most Affordable Luxury Mobile Home Ever ~ The Olympia

This luxury mobile home had many young couples almost in tears over the course of the show as they discovered the perfect solution to being able to afford their own home!

I am sure everyone has an opinion on the economy and the housing crisis in this country but when you meet as many young couples as we do at the shows and exhibitions it really does “bring it home” to you just how BIG the problem of AFFORDABLE housing actually is.

Having bought our first house 30 years ago at a £16,995 price tag (with average earnings for a couple back in the day of £25,000 for the year) it doesn’t take a crystal ball and a calculator to figure out that something went wrong with the cost of UK homes in the last 12 years or so.

It seems totally ridiculous that a couple today are being asked to put down a deposit of £20,000 to £30,000 on a home priced at £180,000 especially when their wages are only slightly more than ours were 30 years ago.

This is one of the reasons of course The Housing ministers and Kevin Mc Cloud of Grand Designs have been looking closely at the self build home options working so successfully in Germany and the Netherlands and throughout Europe.

So let’s take a closer look at our own solution to an affordable luxury mobile home solution that we know young couples and families will love.

Plus The Olympia Luxury Mobile Home Boasts A Utility Room Too!

  • The Olympia Luxury Mobile Home comes with a 10 Year Structural Warranty
  • It Also Carries The BS3620 Kite Mark (without this a mobile home is classed as not worthy of living in)
  • The Cost *can be fully equipped and furnished as you see in the photos above* is around £ 75,000
  • Plus siting and delivery costs

If you are looking for a smart way to ride out the economic storms brewing at the moment and do not feel that putting all your money into property right now would be give you a good investment luxury mobile home living offers a perfect solution that will ultimately retain its value and provide you with the opportunity to sell it on when it has served it’s purpose if necessary.

The Frequently Requested Budget Priced One-Bedroom Annexe

One of the most frequently asked questions is about the “smallest” mobile home / annexe we do so we thought we would share one ofCLL Contemporary one-bedroom floor plans to give you an idea of what £ 60,000 – £70,000 will buy you (installed and delivered of course).

Sometimes the size of the plot (or available budget) will determine what you can and cannot do when it comes to thinking about living in a mobile home.

With so many people these days finding themselves coming off the property ladder due to one of life’s little hurdles coming their way and unable to get back on the housing ladder on a single salary … the thought of living back in “your room” at home is usually completely unappealing.

However as a young couple, a single person or a couple looking to downsize to a small plot, the one-bedroom annexe holds masses of appeal, especially in the CLL Contemporary style, design and floor plan.

You can easily achieve a stylish home to live in for as long as you want or need, for around £60,000 to £70,000 complete *depending on the style and choice of finishes and of course the foundations which are always subject to a full site survey.

There is a lot of hard work, preparation and tradesmen involved in the process of manufacturing and installing these type of mobile homes but with a quick build time of usually less than 8 weeks from start to finish *if planning is NOT required or already obtained.

Mobile home living is slowly changing the way in which people think about “how they are living” as more and more people face up to the reality that the ever-increasing cost of living plus the stagnant housing market make us think smarter about where to put our money in this economy.
