How high off the ground will my Manufactured Home be placed?
FEMA codes and individual county codes dictate the height of the Manufactured Housing placement. If the home is not being placed in a flood zone, a minimum of 36″ from ground to floor level is used. This is considered a “standard set” for a Manufactured Home in Southwest Florida. In a Flood Zone, the minimum placement is 54″ from ground to floor level. This is considered a “high set,” and is an additional charge. Homes can be set at higher levels, if a customer desires that. Concrete pier structures of 8′ to 10′ are also available, and allow the home to be safe in flood areas, as well as utilizing the area beneath for parking, workshops, or storage. Both county and the Manufactured Housing community regulations would determine whether or not concrete pier structures could be constructed on the home site.
