One of the distinctions between a modular and manufactured home is the amount of work that has to be done on site, as most industry professionals know. HUD Code homes are built to federal standards, largely administered by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), while modular homes are built to state or local standards which mirror those of conventional housing.
“In the early ’60s, in The Jetsons vision of a smart home, everything about the entire building from walls and windows to floors and technology was reimagined,” says Richard Harper per the Verge, a sociologist and computer scientist who’s done smart home research for Microsoft and Orange. But some 20 years ago, that vision shifted as new technologies emerged.
Says Harper, “The expectation that the walls of the house would be different had been abandoned, and instead houses were seen as husks that are populated with freestanding internet-of-things devices.”
