Gainesville fl manufactured homes, Gainesville fl manufactured homes, Gainesville fl mobile homes, Gainesville fl factory built homes,
Mobile homes (or manufactured homes) are housing units built in
factories, rather than on site, and then taken to the place where
they will be occupied. They are usually transported by semi-trucks
over public highways. They are less expensive per square foot than
site-built homes, and are often associated with rural areas and
high-density developments, sometimes referred to as trailer parks.
In the UK and USA they are referred to as "mobile home
The term "manufactured home" specifically refers to a home
built entirely in a protected environment under a federal code set
by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Contrary to popular belief, manufactured homes are not mobile homes.
The term "mobile home" describes factory-built homes
produced prior to the 1976 HUD Code enactment.
These houses are usually placed in one location, often a rented lot,
and left there permanently. However, they do retain the ability to
be moved, as this is a requirement in many areas. Behind the
cosmetic work fitted at installation to hide the base, there are
strong trailer frames, axles, wheels and tow-hitches.
Manufactured homes are not large recreational vehicles. The latter
are more properly called travel trailers, motor homes or RVs, and
they are usually parked at facilities called trailer parks, trailer
courts, or RV parks for short terms.
The two major forms of manufactured homes are single-wides and
double-wides. Single-wides are sixteen feet or less in width and can
be towed to their site as a single unit. Double-wides are twenty
feet or more wide and are towed to their site in two separate units,
which are then joined together. Triple-wides and even homes with
four, five, or more units are also manufactured, although not as
In the U.S., manufactured homes are regulated by the United States
Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), via the Federal
National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards Act
of 1974. It is this national regulation that has allowed many
manufacturers to distribute nationwide, since they are immune to the
jurisdiction of local building authorities. By contrast, producers
of modular homes must abide by state and local building codes. There
are, however, windzones adopted by HUD that manufactured home
builders must follow. For example, state-wide, Georgia is at least
windzone 2. South Georgia is windzone 3, the strongest windzone.
After Hurricane Andrew in 1992, new standards were adopted for
manufactured home construction. The codes for building within these
windzones were significantly amended, which has greatly increased
their durability. During the 2004 hurricanes in Georgia, these
standards were put to the test, with great success.
However, older models continue to face the exposed risk to high
winds due to the attachments applied such as carports, porch and
screen room additions. These areas are exposed to "Wind
Capture" which apply extreme force to the underside of the
integrated roof panel systems, ripping the fasteners through the
roof pan causing a series of events which destroys the main roof
system and the home.
