Mobile or manufactured houses are built in a factory. They conform to a Federal building code, called the HUD code, rather than to building codes at their destinations. They typically have a steel frame that acts as the trailer to deliver the home to the site.
Modular homes are built in sections at a factory. Modular homes are built to conform to all state, local or regional building codes at their destinations.
Sections are transported to the building site on truck beds, then joined together by local contractors. Local building inspectors check to make sure a modular home's structure meets requirements and that all finish work is done properly.
Thanks for the question.
