The Distinction Between Manufactured, Mobile, and Multi-Unit

In order to better understand the present day’s manufactured homes it is to differentiate the definitions of manufactured homes, mobile homes, modular homes, and multi-unit manufactured housing.

The terms all refer to a type of home, but each one has its own specific home type. The California Manufactured Housing Institute website, http://cmhi.org/cons05bll.asp, states the differences between each.

Manufactured Home. The manufactured home is constructed to comply with the National Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards, a uniform building standard administered and enforced by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD Code). Over 97 percent of all homes constructed in California factories meet this code.

Factory-Built Homes. Often called “modular” homes, factory-built homes are constructed to comply with the California Administrative Code. About three percent of all factory homes produced in California meet this code.

Mobile Homes. These homes were constructed to comply with standards enforced by the State of California prior to June 15, 1976, when the federal preemptive HUD Code became effective. Mobile homes have not been constructed since this date.

gMulti-unit Manufactured Housing. These homes are built to very specific codes and for use as two-or more dwelling units. Structures can include, duplexes, dormitories, hotels, apartment houses, and other structures that contain two-or more dwelling units. Each have different applicable codes. These homes are utilized by developers for higher density and infill development.
