Optional enhancements for your mobile home
Once you have purchased your new mobile home you should consider the benefits of our range of home improvements. Enhance the look of your home, add extra living space or create secure outdoor storage space. We have listed some ideas below – if you would like more information about any of these or any other options please contact us on 0800 644 4546
Decking & Terraces
One of the main advantages of owning a home in the sun is the opportunity for outside living – adding a decking area will provide an extra living and dining area where you can relax and enjoy the benefits of living abroad.
Adding a beautiful new decking will not only enhance the look of your home – it will give you the opportunity to make the best of your outside space. Decking provides the perfect home for outside dining furniture, sunbeds, hammocks and even a Jacuzzi! Decking is available in various materials and can either be tailor made or off the shelf, whether you want a quarter, half or the full length of your home.
We can offer you a solution to fit all budgets, a standard decking with mobile home skirting would start at approximately £3,000.
Skirting and Additional Terrace Features
The addition of skirting around your mobile home not only camouflages the foundation and pipework, it acts as a deterrent for any unwanted vermin that may cause damage, helps to insulate beneath your home, prevents any build-up of windblown debris and gives your home a finished look.
Skirting is usually manufactured in vinyl or wood. There are also options to have gates fitted, different styles of steps with handrails and wheelchair access ramps.
An Air Conditioning unit can have two functions – heating and cooling – with an auto changeover switch on most new units, you can set the temperature and the unit will cool or heat as required automatically.
Modern units not only reduce humidity but recirculate the air through filters to trap dust and pollen to benefit people suffering from allergies and respiratory problems. An air conditioning should be installed by a registered engineer and will cost approximately 995€.
A car port is a cost-effective way to ensure your vehicle has a permanent undercover base – helping to protect your car against any weather damage such as hail, wind, rain and paint fading from the sun’s UV rays.
A car port is quick and easy to erect as it consists of supports and a flat roof with two to four open sides and provides not only a sheltered parking area for a car, boat or motor bike, extra undercover storage space for BBQs and big garden furniture – but also provides an extra shaded area for entertaining and relaxing.
Garden Storage Boxes
Garden storage boxes provide the perfect storage solution for bikes, lawn mowers, garden tools, BBQs and garden furniture. The boxes have the advantages of being weatherproof, durable, don’t fade and are very low maintenance (just a quick wash over).
Many boxes open from both the top and the front, come with a heavy duty floor panel, built in support for shelving and a padlock hasp for extra security.
Most of our parks allow mobile home owners to have a garden shed on their plot – whether the type of shed permitted is constructed from wood or metal will depend on the park and local authority regulations.
A shed on your plot will give you a large lockable storage area for bikes, sports equipment and gardening tools and most of our park owners can arrange for a shed base and shed to be erected for you – the size and construction of which will comply with the park licence.
Matching wooden planters can be added to your patio or terrace for you to grow your favourite outdoor plants.
