Systems Building Research Alliance (SBRA) developed
a Model Manufacturer's Installation Manual (Manual) for HUD-code
homes. The Manual is a template that any manufacturer can take and
modify to fit their design and construction practices. In developing
the Manual, SBRA worked closely with a group of manufacturers, installers
and other industry experts.
The Manual provides a consistent format, making it easier for installers
to use multiple manuals, and it provides a consistent base for installer
training. It is available electronically to permit individual manufactures
to tailor the installation instructions to their own designs and
The Manual is available free of charge to any manufacturer of HUD-code
homes. Customization support services are available for a fee by
contacting SBRA (see below).
Some state and local programs that provide incentives for Energy
Star construction may have additional construction and/or procedural
requirements that exceed this national program.
To use the Manual, manufacturers must complete and submit the Model
Manufacturer's Installation Manual Acceptance and Registration Form.
After this form is received, SBRA will issue a permission letter
and instructions to download the editable version of the Manual,
AutoCAD drawings and Model Manufacturer's Installation Manual User's
