What is the difference between mobile homes (or trailer) and mini homes?

Single-Section Manufactured Homes (Mini Homes) are residential homes built to Canadian Standards Association A-277 (Canadian National Building Code). Standard specs include engineered roof trusses, 2 x 10 floor joists, 2 x 6 exterior walls, 2 x 4 interior walls, 8′ ceilings and primed and painted drywall. Modular homes with truss floors are typically designed to go on a basement or foundation.
Mobile Homes are manufactured to Canadian Standards Association Z-240. Standard specs include 2 x 8 floor joists on a steel frame, 2 x 4 or 2 x 6 exterior walls, 7½’ ceilings, and gypsum paneling. Older generation Mobile Homes were built on a steel frame were typically set on concrete blocking piers or sono tubes (cement pylons).


Please be advised that our office is open by appointment only. We are trying whenever possible to maintain social distancing to keep our staff and clients safe. We have tight areas in our office and want to avoid client overlap. During Covid, we discovered that we are able to share information about our homes with clients from the comfort and safety of their own home, using video meetings, virtual tours, and digital signing.  At this time, you will also notice we have no model homes on the lot to view in person, however, we do have virtual tours of all of our homes that can be found online on our YouTube channel or our FaceBook page. For more information about our homes, or to book your private in-person appointment, please call ahead prior to visiting our office, at (902) 835-8388 or send an email to .
We thank you in advance for your understanding & look forward to speaking with you.
