Skyline Homes Inc.
Manufactured homes are built as either a single section home or a multi-section home, depending on the floor plan. They are constructed and delivered on a permanent chassis, so a permanent foundation is not necessary. Because of their efficient, high-quality construction, these homes provide the best value in home buying. Manufactured homes conform to Housing and Urban Development (HUD) codes. During your search, you'll often find them referred to as ''HUDs.'' Prior to the Federal Manufactured Home Construction Safety Standards, manufactured homes were sometimes called ''mobile homes'' or ''trailer homes.'' The HUD code regulates the design, construction, structural durability, transportability, fire resistance and energy efficiency of a home. It also prescribes performance standards for the mechanical, plumbing and electrical standards.
Modular homes, while built in the factory and transported in sections, are virtually indistinguishable from a site-built home, though they tend to be better constructed, take less time to build and are more energy-efficient. They are placed on a foundation and are subject to the same codes as any other site-built home, including all local, state and regional building regulations.
