Hello. Let me see if I can assist you. any restrictions imposed would be determined by a homeowner's association (if you have one in your neighborhood) and the city and county ordinances in place for land. Do you have a homeowner's association?

If your land is in unincorporated Sonoma County, the county zoning allows for manufactured homes but you will need to apply for a permit.

Here's more information on the county ordinance/rules:

If you are purchasing a manufactured home in an established mobile home park, you do not need to obtain a permit.

Hope that helps.

Please remember to accept my responses and post a positive rating.
