What is the difference between modular & manufactured homes?

Modular homes require a building permit and are subject to local zoning and building code standards. Manufactured homes must meet building standards defined by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and are defined as a movable dwelling, 8 feet or more wide and 40 feet or more long, designed to be towed on its own chassis, with transportation gear integral to the unit when it leaves the factory, and without need of a permanent foundation. No building permit is required for a manufactured home.
