Manufactured homes, unlike site-built homes, are regulated by the US government under the HUD code. This means design, construction, durability, strength, fire resistance, energy efficiency, and more are all regulated by the U.S. government. The manufactured home is the only form of housing routinely inspected for building code compliance before the homeowner moves in. Plus, the building process is designed to be efficient! Instead of subjecting top quality materials and equipment to the elements, manufactured homes are built in factories, saving time and money. The factory-built process also allows craftsmen to build walls and floors on fixtures to ensure that each home comes together perfectly.
