CAPE GAZETYE, Friday, April 10 - April 16, 1998 - 61 Manufactured Housing Association holds installation seminar In furthering its education ef- forts, DMHA held free seminars in both Dover and at Angola Beach and Estates earlier this week, on soil testing, footer size and spacing, as well as tie-downs. George Porter of Manufactured Housing Resources of Lewes, who is recognized worldwide for his education and certification programs, covered soil testing, footer size and spacing. He was instrumental in establishing the first school in the country to certi- fy manufactured home installation The Manufactured Housing in- dustry takes an increasingly im- portant role in Delaware's hous- ing market, with about 35 percent of all new single-family housing permits represented by the indus- try. The Delaware Manufactured Housing Association (DMHA) al- so recognizes the importance of proper installation and anchoring of HUD code homes and the need for education of those who per- form this final step in making homes safe and secure for con- sumers. and repair. This school is being built at Somerset Community Col- lege in Kentucky, funded through a $2.4 million Department of La- bor training grant. A field demonstration of actual pull-out tests of anchors that have been installed either properly or improperly, was given by Merrill Sutton, vice president of sales and marketing for Tie Down Engi- neering, Inc. of Atlanta. Tie Down Engineering is the develop- er of Vector Dynamics, which sta- bilizes the home by using physics and redistributing the loads of high winds. Sutton provided classroom analysis of the forces at work when a home is exposed to wind methods of installation with respect to soil classification and the need for stabilization. "Our goal is to educate the in- dustry on what needs to be done to safely secure a home so that it will last 50 or 100 years," said DMHA President Craig Hudson, of Hud- son Homes, which operates Ango- la Beach and Estates. "We want to have installers working accord- ing to scientific and engineering standards." In fact, Hudson noted, they are working to have Sussex County establish uniform standards in manufactured housing installa- tion, "so that we can ensure the job is done right and there is no stigma associated to manufactured housing." They would like to have uniform codes adopted statewide. IIOlmB The demand is high for .fine homes.
