Manufactured Home Foundation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
A manufactured home is supported by interior piers on spread footings at
approximate 6'-0" centers.  There are steel tie-downs connected to the
structure's steel frame.  The exterior walls do not have a continuous wall
footing.  Since it is supported by the interior columns and tie-downs, I
thought this could satisfy HUD requirements for a permanent foundation.  Is
my assessment incorrect.
