Some states mandate that each mobile home is placed on concrete pad. States like Wisconsin provides alternative to concrete pad, which can be costly. One of the alternatives is called frost protected foundation system.

Frost free foundation system is basically having the right soil type under a mobile home to prevent frost. When water freezes, it expands. Thus when there is frost in the ground, it will expand. This is called frost heaving. As ground expands and contracts as it freezes and thaws, it can move the foundation of a home. This can cause significant damage to a home.
The main reason for having concrete pad under a house is to prevent frost from forming under the house. You can achieve the same by having a right type of soil. Clay and silt holds a lot of water. Sand, on the other hand, doesn’t. Frost free foundation system is basically making sure of the following so that frost doesn’t form under a house.
  • The soil under the house is of right type so that it doesn’t retain water
  • It is shaped so that water drains away from the house
  • Ground water table level is not too close to the house

Different states have different standard and regulation regarding this, so make sure to check with local agencies
