Definitions of Homes
Manufactured Homes: Homes built entirely in the factory under the federal building code, referred to as the HUD Code, administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Manufactured homes may be single-section or multi-section and are transported the site and installed according to the manufacturer’s installation guidelines. The majority of manufactured homes have the wheels and axles removed with the home being permanently sited and a real property deed issued.
Modular Homes: Homes built in a factory as units that meet the state or local building code. In Alabama this is the International Residential Building Code. This is the same building code that most site-built homes must meet in this state.
