Manufactured and modular homes offer myriad benefits and features that appeal to homebuyers seeking quality living at an affordable price. They can be great options for those looking to experience lakeside living.

Whether it's a spacious deck to enjoy stunning lake views, larger windows to bring in natural light or energy-efficient features that enhance your comfort, our team can tailor your home to meet your specific desires,” said James "Jimmy" Hegeduis, EVP client relations for

“As Cullman's leading retailer, Star Homes takes great pride in helping families find their perfect abode. We understand the importance of choosing a home that fits your lifestyle, and our knowledgeable staff is here to guide you every step of the way,” he said.

Modern manufactured and modular homes take into consideration those who want to live sustainable lifestyles.

“At Star Homes, we believe in sustainable living and are committed to offering energy-efficient homes that not only benefit the environment, but also save you money on utilities in the long run,” said Hegeduis. “Our collection of energy-efficient manufactured and modular homes is designed to provide comfortable living spaces while minimizing your carbon footprint.”

The Alabama Manufactured Housing Association says: “Today’s factory-built homes are the future in home ownership. The manufactured home or modular home built in a factory and installed on land is less expensive than most site-built homes…Construction cost per square foot of a new manufactured home or modular home may range from 10% to 35% less than a comparable site-built home, excluding the cost of land. Features, floor plans, and other details affect the price of homes.

“Today’s manufactured and modular homes come with many features that you find in a site-built home. Several floor plans are available, ranging from basic models to more elaborate designs with living and dining rooms with vaulted ceilings, fully-equipped kitchens, media rooms, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms with garden tubs.”

Star Homes in Cullman is located at 1081 County Road 437.
