What Really Makes Our Mobiles Into A Real Home

The New Generation Of Mobile Home Owners Are Playing It Smart With Their Money And Ultra Smart When It Comes To Living In Style

"pete cossie"Note from Pete: Northampton is town where a lot of the major commercial mobile home manufacturers are based. Tingdene and Homeseeker being two of them. The mobile home market on a commercial level is huge.

There are millions and millions of static caravans parked all year round on some of our most loved holiday destinations that become our home from home for two weeks of the year.

And some of us have at some time invested in a permanent holiday home / static mobile home to enjoy as many family weekends and holidays as possible whenever the fancy takes us.

But the commercial mobile homes that are referred to as Park Homes / Mobile Homes or Static Mobile Homes have several real issues that prevent them being ideal as residential mobile homes for permanent living and that is where Contemporary Log Living really began ….

No Plastic Or Tin Walls To Worry About

Most people who live in Park Homes or mobile homes in the UK only spend half the year in them because they are rarely well insulated or energy-efficient enough to be suitable for comfortable year round living.

The Contemporary Log Living residential mobiles have been created for year round living, are extremely well insulated in walls, floors and ceilings and are energy-efficient so you can abandon the thoughts of freezing your way  through the winter or racking up high heating bills when you select a custom-made residential mobile home from our ranges.

We have even introduced SIPS (structurally insulated panels) into the manufacturing process so that you are assured of the highest quality construction materials are used in every “little home” we design and build.

This also means an end to those paper-thin walls you associate with Park Homes and holiday mobile homes too.

Plus all our residential mobile homes are now finished in Western Red Cedar providing you with the beauty of natural wood rather than the traditional rendered or plastic log effect finish associated with mobile homes for parks.

Say Goodbye To Twee UPVC Bay Windows And Hello To Aluminium Bi-Fold Doors

The minute you think of a holiday mobile home you think of twee looking UPVC bay windows. Although the bi-fold doors in the picture above are UPVC, our standard bi-fold doors are aluminium in a choice of colours including the popular dark grey contemporary style.

Bi-fold doors are one of today’s top-selling features for home extensions,opening up a full wall of your home onto a decked area or patio to allow indoor / outdoor living to blend beautifully.

Bi-fold doors are a feature of our contemporary style mobile homes, flexi-room extensions and garden studios and they allow you to add something  really special to your residential mobile home that really does make it feel more of a home.

Your Kitchen Is The Heart Of The Home .. So We Like To Make It Special


If you have looked into the idea of residential mobile homes as a permanent home for living in, perhaps as a young couple, an independent adult who has found themselves back at home living with Mum & Dad, or someone who is looking to downsize without compromise … the whole idea can be won or lost when you see what the kitchen is going to look like.

Holidays may be great in a standard kitchen, because day-to-day cooking is usually replaced by eating out a lot more.

But for people looking for a real “little home” the kitchen and bathrooms really make or break the whole design and that’s another reason we decided to offer kitchens from a local manufacturer that would look good in any home, including a residential mobile home.

Storage is ultra important in a smaller than average sized home, (although most of our residential mobile homes are at least the size of a two bedroom bungalow or bigger) and residential living requires appliances such as a dishwasher, fridge/ freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer on a daily basis.

We will work with you to design a great kitchen in your residential mobile home and provide you with a 3D drawing of your choice before it goes into manufacturing so you know exactly what it will look like in your new mobile home.

All The Elements Of Modern Apartment Living In A Residential Mobile Home

"warwickshire hideaways"

Bathrooms and en-suites are the next must haves for everyone and anything you can do in a home or apartment can be done in a mobile home …. you just have to find the right company to provide you with the choice.

Some Granny Annexe companies are going to “bang out” standard modules at budget prices and if that is what you are looking for then there are a few to choose from.

What we at Contemporary Log Living are doing is crafting unique granny annexes and residential mobile homes that have lots of bespoke and custom aspects to them.

When it comes to choosing your bathroom and en-suite (if you are having one) you will be given a budget to work with for half tiles walls to the bathroom and tiling to the en-suite area which usually has a shower cubicle.

In an ideal residential mobile home you will have both a bath and a shower cubicle, plus you can choose a vanity unit with storage drawers under the unit for practical storage for this all important room.

Hiding The Chassis? And No It Does Not Come On Wheels

"warwickshire hideaways""lodge style homes UK"

Building a mobile home conjures up all sorts of ideas about whether the home is on wheels, or whether the chassis is obvious to passers-by and visitors?

As you can see in the picture of the show lodge at Warwickshire Hideaways you can easily hide any chassis with decking and clever landscaping.

In this economy it seems to makes good financial sense to many people to minimise risk of putting equity from a house sale or savings into an uncertain property ladder in the UK.

That’s why more people than ever before are exploring ways of becoming mortgage free by downsizing to the back garden, adding value to the main house in the process (which in the long run will it make it more desirable and easier to sell) and building residential mobile homes that are every bit as good (if not better) than the standard “new homes” being built-in a field  near you right now!

So if you if want all the left-brain how much does it cost kind of info .. here it is …

Prices start at £65,000* – £85,000* for a high quality two bedroom contemporary residential mobile home like the CLL Contemporary (*depending on the design and specification)
