Manufactured Homes
Johnston City, IL

Manufactured homes are built to the HUD Code and keep steel beams under the home. A HUD Code home has a standard 3/12 pitch roof but can be made with 5/12 or even 7/12 roofs which can also be purchased with ½’’ drywall. The HUD Code is the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards for all states. A State Code Mod, which is typically a state specific building code, normally have standard ½’’ drywalls and, in most cases, have a standard 5/12 pitch roof.

Modular Homes
Marion, IL

A State Code Modular Home is built to the State Building Code, which is normally a version of the International Residential Code. This code covers both State Code Modular Homes as well as site built homes. Most State Code Modular homes are built with 2×6 sidewalls as opposed to site built which are have 2×4 sidewalls. Also, State Code Modular Homes usually have more insulation. State Code Modular homes are transported on a carrier and steel beams are removed before the home is set on the foundation. Mods are supported on a foundation perimeter wall just like site built homes.
