Manufactured houses are built to Housing and Urban Development (HUD) codes. This code entails very minimal standards for materials and structural requirements.
Cardinal Homes are built to comply with local and state building codes...just like site-built homes, only in a more timely manner and quality controlled environment.
Manufactured Houses are often referred to as "Mobile Homes", "Trailers", "Single-Wides" or "Double Wides". They are built on NON-REMOVABLE steel frames.
Cardinal Homes, however, are built on a floor system which is set onto a permanent foundation.
Manufactured Houses must be titled by DMV like an RV. Trailers are considered Personal Property once purchased.
Cardinal Homes do not require a title for ownership and are valued as Real Property like any traditional on-site built home.
