Manufactured homes, sometimes referred to as mobile or modular homes, are an economical housing solution that have evolved from trailers and are now longer, heavier and more rigidly constructed. Because they are seldom moved once placed on a property, as much planning should go into the installation of a manufactured home as would be needed for a site built home.
All manufactured homes produced in Canada are required to carry a Canadian Standards Association Certification; either CSA Z240 for manufactured homes, or CSA A277 for modular homes.
Manufactured homes used as residences on all properties within the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George must bear a valid CSA certification decal, to be approved for use as a dwelling unit. The decal is usually found affixed to the cladding just to the left of the main entrance. When making non-structural changes to the exterior of a manufactured home, do not remove or deface the CSA decal. Manufactured Homes must be no older than 10 years to be placed in the Regional District and must meet the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George snow-load. Modular Homes from out of Province are not permitted.
Manufactured homes are required to be set up in a manner that meets or exceeds the BC Building Code, CSA standards and manufacturer’s instructions for site preparations, foundations and anchorage. Application for Manufactured Home.
Samples of manufactured home construction details are available here.
When ready for inspections, consult Inspection Requirements for Manufactured Homes to ensure that all items have been completed.
