Manufactured housing [commonly known as mobile homes in the United States] is a type of prefabricated housing that is largely assembled in factories and then transported to sites of use. The definition of the term in the United States is regulated by federal law [Code of Federal Regulations, 24 CFR 3280]:

"Manufactured homes are built as dwelling units of at least 320 square feet in size with a permanent chassis to assure the initial and continued transportability of the home." The requirement to have a wheeled chassis permanently attached differentiates "manufactured housing" from other types of prefabricated homes, such as modular homes.



Modular buildings and modular homes are sectional prefabricated buildings or houses that consist of multiple modules or sections which are manufactured in a remote facility and then delivered to their intended site of use. The modules are assembled into a single residential building using either a crane or trucks.

Modular buildings are considerably different from mobile homes. Off-frame modular dwellings differ from mobile homes largely in their absence of axles or a frame, meaning that they are typically transported to their site by means of flat-bed trucks; however, some modular dwellings are built on a steel frame [on-frame module] that can be used for transportation to the site. Many modular homes have multiple levels. Homes are often set in place using a crane.




Modular buildings have a variety of uses. They may be used for long-term, temporary or permanent facilities, such as construction camps, schools and classrooms, civilian and military housing, and industrial facilities. Modular buildings are used in remote and rural areas where conventional construction may not be reasonable or possible, for example, the Halley VI accommodation pods used for a BAS Antarctic expedition.

Other uses have included churches, health care facilities, sales and retail offices, fast food restaurants and cruise ship construction.

Buying a new manufactured home is both a smart and wise investment. You have assurances of quality from the federal government under the U.S. Housing and Urban Development construction standards program [implemented in 1976 to regulate the factory construction of every manufactured home built in America]. This code assures the home buyer that a home constructed in California, or anywhere in the country, is covered by this strict code that supersedes all state and local regulations.

This code covers design and construction regulations such as strength, durability, fire resistance and energy efficiency, plus heating, plumbing, air conditioning and electrical systems.

Factory construction creates better value for the home buyer. The key to building high-quality homes is having a well trained, stable work force in a factory setting. There are no independent, uncontrolled, expensive subcontractors. As new methods and technologies improve how the homes are built, worker training can be accomplished easily within the worker groups on the factory floor.

Workers use sophisticated cutting and fastening machinery to ensure accurate, strong assembly. Large items such as roofing structures and walls can be pre-assembled, then placed accurately in position with overhead cranes. In-house shops pre-build kitchen and bathroom cabinets that are done on time and fit right on the first try.

A comprehensive quality inspection process guarantees that value is into every home at each step.

Bringing all the advantages of factory construction together makes it easier to maintain higher and more consistent quality in the building of manufactured homes and at a much lower cost than be done with site-built homes.

The manufactured home begins on a computer, using the latest software technology, assuring that the construction plan is designed and features and elements are perfect in every detail. Factories are able to buy materials in much larger quantities than site-builders, thus providing an enormous savings. In the climate controlled environment of the factory, builders are able to produce anywhere from 30 to 40 manufactured homes in a single week. Without weather delays the factory establishes a steady flow of efficiency that enables work to progress from start to finish uninterrupted. This translates to quality in the final product.

Materials are exactly the same as site-builders use. Same national brands, same dimensional lumber. If fact, you'll find that most building innovations were first used in a manufactured home factory. The major factory assembly line approach cuts construction costs by 20% on each unit. HUD standards of heating and cooling are quite rigid, and mean that each unit will be properly insulated, no matter in what climate zone that home may be placed. The walls are moved around by automated cranes, and as the wall is properly placed, the ceiling is also attached, providing for an air tight fit.

Because every movement in the factory is orchestrated for a specific reason, the efficiency level is extremely high. Because of these efficiencies, manufactured housing costs about one half what the conventional site-built home cost with same square footage and amenities. From the floor plan, to completion, including all integrated parts, such as wiring, insulation, to the exterior siding, are done in a matter of days in a carefully controlled work process.

Many standards applied to manufactured housing builders are unheard of in site-built construction. Quality is equal to, or greater than, some commercial buildings. Teams of quality control personnel are in constant contact with the construction process to insure that the job is done right the first time. In quality, energy efficiency, and value, manufactured homes are the new era of single family housing.

The California Manufactured Housing Institute [CMHI] is a non-profit trade and professional association whose member companies build, sell and finance manufactured housing and develop manufactured housing communities and developments.

The Institute was founded to advance the availability and ownership of quality, high value homes, marketed by licensed retailers, by promoting the purchase of manufactured housing and the development of desirable sites and communities in California. The Institute's public, government and consumer relations programs are directed toward these goals.


Many types of structures are built in the factory and designed for long-term residential use.

In the case of manufactured and modular homes, units are built in a factory, transported to the site and installed. 

In panelized and pre-cut homes, essentially flat subassemblies (factory-built panels or factory-cut building materials) are transported to the site and assembled. The different types of factory-built housing can be summarized as follows:


These are homes built entirely in the factory under a federal building code administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). 

The Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards [commonly known as the HUD Code] went into effect June 15, 1976. 

Manufactured homes may be single- or multi-section and are transported to the site and installed. 

The federal standards regulate manufactured housing design and construction, strength and durability, transportability, fire resistance, energy efficiency and quality. 

The HUD Code also sets performance standards for the heating, plumbing, air conditioning, thermal and electrical systems. It is the only federally-regulated national building code. 

On-site additions, such as garages, decks and porches, often add to the attractiveness of manufactured homes and must be built to local, state or regional building codes.


These factory-built homes are built to the state, local or regional code where the home will be located. Modules are transported to the site and installed.


These are factory-built homes in which panels - a whole wall with windows, doors, wiring and outside siding - are transported to the site and assembled. The homes must meet state or local building codes where they are sited.



This is the name for factory-built housing in which building materials are factory-cut to design specifications, transported to the site and assembled. Pre-cut homes include kit, log and dome homes. These homes must meet local, state or regional building codes.


This is the term used for factory-built homes produced prior to June 15, 1976, when the HUD Code went into effect. By 1970, these homes were built to voluntary industry standards that were eventually enforced by 45 of the 48 contiguous states.

According to manufacturers, modular homes are generally designed to be initially stronger than traditional homes by, for example, replacing nails with screws and adding glue to joints. This is supposed to help the modules maintain their structural integrity as they are transported on trucks to the construction site.

Despite manufacturer claims that the modular home is initially built to be stronger than a traditional home, it is difficult to predict the final building strength since it needs to endure transportation stresses that traditional homes never experience.

When FEMA studied the destruction wrought by Hurricane Andrew in Dade County Florida, they concluded that modular and masonry homes fared best compared to other construction.

Typically, a modular home contains about ten [10] to twenty [20] percent more lumber compared to traditional stick-built homes. This is because modules need to be transported to the job site and the additional lumber helps keep them stable.



Typically, modular dwellings are built to local, state or council code: dwellings built in a given manufacturing facility will have differing construction standards depending on the final destination of the modules. Steel and/or wood framing are common options for building a modular home. Modular home designs can be customized for local zoning codes. For example, homes built for final assembly in a hurricane-prone area may include additional bracing to meet local building codes.

Some US courts have ruled that zoning restrictions applicable to mobile homes do not apply to modular homes since modular homes are often assembled with a permanent foundation. Additionally, in the US, valuation differences between modular homes and site-built homes are often negligible in real estate appraisal practice; thus, modular homes can in some market areas [depending on local appraisal practices per Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice] be evaluated the same way as traditionally built dwellings of similar quality.

In Australia manufactured home parks are governed by additional legislation that does not apply to permanent modular homes. Possible developments in equivalence between modular and site-built housing types for the purposes of real estate appraisals, financing and zoning may increase the sales of modular homes over time.

Environmental Planning concerns itself with the decision making processes where they are required for managing relationships that exist within and between natural systems and human systems. Environmental Planning endeavours to manage these processes in an effective, orderly, transparent and equitable manner for the benefit of all constituents within such systems for the present and for the future. Present day Environmental Planning Practices are the result of continuous refinement and expansion of the scope of such decision making processes.

Some of the main elements of present day environmental planning are:

Social & Economic Development / Urban Development & Redevelopment / Regional Development / Natural Resource Management & Integrated Land Use / Infrastructure and Intermodal Interconnectivity Systems / Governance Framework

The environmental planning assessments encompass areas such as land use, socioeconomics, transportation, economic and housing characteristics, air quality and air pollution, noise pollution, the wetlands, habitat of the endangered species, flood zones susceptibility, coastal zones erosion, and visual studies among others, and is referred to as an Integrated Environmental Planning Assessment [IEPA].

In the United States, for any project, environmental planners deal with a full range of environmental regulations from federal to state and city levels, administered federally by the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA].

A rigorous environmental process has to be undertaken to examine the impacts and possible mitigation of any construction project. Depending on the scale and impact of the project, an extensive environmental review is known as an Environmental Impact Statement [EIS], and the less extensive version is Environmental Assessment [EA]. Procedures follow guidelines from National Environmental Policy Act [NEPA], State Environmental Quality Review Act [SEQRA] and/or City Environmental Quality Review [CEQR], and other related federal or state agencies published regulations.

The Association of Environmental Professionals (AEP) is a non-profit organization of interdisciplinary professionals including environmental science, resource management, environmental planning and other professions contributing to this field. AEP is the first organization of its kind in the USA, and its influence and model have spawned numerous other regional organizations throughout the United States. Its mission is to improve the technical skills of members, and the organization is dedicated to "the enhancement, maintenance and protection of the natural and human environment". From inception in the mid 1970s the organization has been closely linked with the maintenance of the California Environmental Quality Act [CEQA], due to California being one of the first states to adopt a comprehensive legal framework to govern the environmental review of public policy and project review.
