Manufactured Homes (HUD Code)
What is a manufactured home?
Manufactured homes are factory-built homes engineered and constructed in accordance with the federal building code administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The HUD code was established in 1976. Prior to that time, manufactured homes were referred to as mobile homes. Manufactured homes may be single- or multi-section and are available in various sizes and floor plan configurations.

Your home will be delivered and set on your site when weather and ground conditions permit.. While the factory is building your home, Champion Home Center will be working with you to obtain the necessary building permits, preparing your lot for building, installing the foundation, if selected, and planning for utility hookups and other necessary site work. Local building officials will inspect the project on site at various stages.
