Board means the Housing and Community Development Board. Federal Standards refer to federal regulations for the construction and safety of manufactured homes. Building or accessory structure means any awning, cabin, terrace, ramada, storage closet, garage, windbreak, garage or porch for which the home manufacturer has designed its fastening to be structurally supported by the prefabricated house. Building or accessory structure means any awning, cabin, terrace, ramada, storage closet, garage, windbreak, garage or porch for which the home manufacturer has designed its attachment to be structurally supported by the prefabricated house.
Under the legislation, the fundamental difference between this type of housing and prefabricated houses boils down to whether the manufacturer chooses to exclude its product from the scope of the law. They should not be expected to build homes that also meet the specific requirements of different state and local jurisdictions, confirming that a site-built self-sufficient garage is considered an add-on and clarifying that the add-ons do not affect the ability of a prefabricated house to meet the standards. The commentator stated that HUD should refrain from making any changes that could widen the gap between the code's requirements for manufactured homes and those that apply to homes built with sticks or with engineering building systems. This chapter shall apply to any prefabricated house built on or after July 1, 1986, or built on or after June 15, 1976, and that was previously subject to the Federal Act or the Industrial Building and Mobile Home Unit Safety Act (§ 36-70 et seq.).
Therefore, importers and manufacturers who choose the regulatory route for modular housing may have to resort to state regulations adopted by the IBC or the IRC (considering that some states have fully adopted the IBC and the IRC, and others have adopted them with amendments). This restriction is not found in the International Residential Code (IRC), which only prohibits the passage of a four-inch sphere and would result in a restriction for prefabricated home builders that does not exist for builders of site-built homes. While under DOT rules, the process of transporting a home is considered an operation that takes place in a vehicle back and forth, the DOT also recognizes that these homes require special consideration. I) The prefabricated house must be designed and constructed to withstand all imposed loads, including any loads imposed on the dwelling by the attached accessory building or structure, in accordance with part 3280 of this chapter.
In relation to modular homes, as mentioned in a previous section, there is still no specific building code for modular homes. The HUD seeks to prevent a home from becoming unfulfilled when a building or attached structure is built and added to the housing site. D) Building or accessory structure means any awning, cabin, terrace, ramada, storage closet, garage, windbreak, garage or porch for which the home manufacturer has designed its attachment with the structural support of the prefabricated house on page 2526 printed on page 2526 printed on page 2526.
