Manufactured vs Modular
Manufactured Housing Units (MHUs)
A Manufactured Housing Unit (MHU) is defined by HUD as “a structure, transportable in one or more sections which, in the traveling mode, is eight body-feet or more in width or 40 body-feet or more in length, or when erected on site, is 320 square feet, and which is built on a permanent chassis and designed to be used as a dwelling with or without a permanent foundation when connected to the required utilities, and includes the plumbing, heating, air-conditioning, and electrical systems contained therein.”
Because manufactured housing retailers frequently identify all their products as “modular homes” it is important that any home being purchased as an MHU actually complies with HUD’s definition for MHU. Each home type is identified by a distinct factory label which must also confirm compliance with HUD construction standards. Modular homes are subject to treatment as site-built housing and must comply with different construction standards.
