3 Licensing General supervision – installer does not need to be on the job site Homeowner is exempt from licensing but if other people are hired they would then need a license (no way around the law)

4 Application $100 license fee plus one time $10 application fee for 4 year license Take 12 hour qualifying class

5 Renewal Renewal requires 12 hours of continuing education over the 4 year period Also must not have been found responsible for breaking the rule or defrauding a customer

6 Wisconsin Installation Standard
Act 45 authorized adoption of standards Manufactured Housing Code Council - recommended rule adopted draft federal rule Council is attached to the Dept of Safety & Professional Services Published in Administrative Register

7 SPS 321.40 – Homes built prior to April 1
Formerly Comm 27.18 Now a part of the UDC Applies to homes built before April 1, 2007

8 SPS 321.40 - Homes built prior to April 1
Ground sets permitted – no frost protection No footing on unprepared fill. All organic matter must be removed. Soil bearing test using pocket penetrometer Grade site to drain water away for minimum of 5 ft from home A footing for every pier, nominal 16” by 16” Consult the manufacturer, engineer or architect if soil is less than 2000 psi

9 SPS Footings one 4 by 16 by 16 solid blocks or two 4 by 8 by 16 solid blocks. 16 by 16 ABS pad rated at not less than 6000 lbs 18 inch diameter hole bored below the frost line or to unfractured bedrock and filled with poured concrete Other materials or systems approved by Department of Safety & Professional Service



12 SPS 321.40 Piers - Homes built prior to April 1
Concrete blocks, manufactured steel stands or manufactured concrete stands Single stack piers limited to 36 inches Single stack piers loads limited to 8,000 lbs 36 to 80 inch piers – double blocked (layered in opposing layers) 80 inch or more – double blocked laid in concrete mortar, cores filled with mortar and ½ inch steel reinforcing rod

13 SPS 321.40 Concrete Blocks 2 core design, construction grade 8x8x16
Cores placed with cores open vertically Block nearest main frame shall be perpendicular to the linear direction of frame No block may contact the frame

14 SPS 321.40 – Pier Spacing No more than 7 feet on center
No more than 3 feet from exterior side of each end wall Can be varied to follow manufacturer tables Piers under clear-span openings of 4 feet or more in mating walls Piers must be plumb and centered under point of support

18 Federal Installation Standard
Applies to homes built on or after April 1 Modified by Department of Department of Safety & Professional Service

19 The Standards 3280 – HUD Construction Standards for the home
3285 – HUD Model Installation Standards The following must be AT LEAST AS STRINGENT as the federal model State Standards Manufacturer Manuals

20 Understanding Part 3285 Code is available from the front page of the Alliance website It includes “wisconsin-isms”

21 Application These standards apply to HUD Code manufactured Homes not modulars.

22 Major Differences Must be a frost protected foundation system
Monolithic Slab (not runners) Cylindrical Concrete Footings bored to 48" Min. Depth Insulated foundation system Drainage 10 away verses 5 feet No Ground Sets! All of home must be no less than 12” above grade

23 Major Differences Concrete blocks must meet ASTM C90
Piers may be 10 ft apart verses 7 ft Double blocking required above 36” and all corner blocks Piers no more than 2 ft from ends verses 3 ft from ends More specifics on permitted woods

24 “Wisconsin-isms” Entire state is 48” frost depth
Anchors to be driven to full depth but need not be more than 30” Fire separation must also conform to SPS 326

25 Things to Watch! Permits required Inspections required Setbacks
Fire protection Steps & decks Enforcement may not be uniform for awhile but that doesn’t mean it’s not coming

26 AC Inspections Alternative Construction (AC) Inspections WILL NOT be part of Department of Safety & Professional Service’s UDC Inspector Program! ( a "HUDism" per Leroy Stublaski) Remember to reserve "separate" inspection fees for HUD Homes requiring AC inspection(s). Contact "Home Manufacturer" for approved inspector contacts.
