Prefabricated building requirements

This chapter of the state building code governs the construction of prefabricated buildings. These are buildings intended for use as one- or two-family dwellings or accessory buildings of closed construction, meaning they are constructed so that concealed parts or processes of manufacture cannot be inspected at the site without disassembly.

This regulation is similar to that in Chapter 1361 but is intended for those small manufacturers, particularly those lumber yards or vocational schools, that construct no more than three buildings for permanent installation in a calendar year. Compliance with the state building code is evidenced by a permanent seal and data plate that gets affixed to each building or building module.

Minnesota's prefabricated building requirements consist of:
