Modular homes with truss floors are typically designed to go on a basement or foundation.Mobile Homes are manufactured to Canadian Standards Association Z-240. Standard specs include 2 x 8 floor joists on a steel frame, 2 x 6 exterior walls, 7½' ceilings, and gypsum paneling. Mobile Homes on a steel frame are typically set on concrete blocking piers or sono tubes (cement pylons).All mobile homes can be upgraded to A277 Code.
