Manufactured Home Installation Permit Application

Purpose

All manufactured homes installed in the State of Ohio require the application for a permit and completion of the three required inspections before the home is permitted to be occupied. This is to ensure the home is being installed according to the manufactures specifications or applicable state installation code.

Determining Soil Classification

Methods for determining soil classification:

  • A soil penetrometer can be used to determine the soil classification for the foundation.
  • A soil torque probe can be used to determine the soil classification for anchors
  • If these tools are not available, you may determine your soil classification by comparing the soil to the soil classification chart located in the example guide available from the resources page.

Why state inspections are so important

State inspections are a mandatory part of the installation process. But there's a reason why they're so important. That's because inspections:

  • Reveal issues with the foundation
  • Find problems with electrical systems
  • Show any other difficulties that need to be fixed
