Modular & Factory Built Housing
Factory Built Housing is a general term in the Louisville Metro Land Development Code (LDC) that includes both modular and manufactured homes. Both types are generally constructed in an off-site facility and then transported to a final location for installation. Modular homes must be built to the same state and local building codes as site-built homes, while manufactured homes are built to a code established by HUD (U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development).
On December 21, 2023, the Louisville Metro Planning Commission approved a Resolution requesting that staff review the standards for Factory Built Housing in the Land Development Code and develop recommendations to modernize and reduce regulatory barriers to the construction of Factory Built Housing, specifically modular housing. Read the full Planning Commission Resolution below.
