Jordan,

According to HUD, dry stack CMU is allowed.
Reference: http://www.pathnet.org/sp.asp?id=1003
for the Manufactured Homes Installation Training Manual.

It is a pretty good document representing practices and engineered solutions. HUD sponsored this and participated in the development. The Manufactured Homes Insititute also participated.

Regards,
Harold Sprague

Is anyone out there familiar enough with the PFGMH to know if there are any interpretations or modifications which allow the use of unmortared (dry stacked) CMU piers? Also, is there an interpretation which allows the exterior of the piers to be covered in a cementitious compound in lieu of mortared bed joints?
