Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of your new Northport dwelling will require substantial and thoughtful preparation which needs to be carried out at the outset of the project strategy. Your new residence will conform to all of the building code requirements but you’ll still need to arrange for the perimeter line locations, and have virtually all construction permits. Moreover, you must determine soil type and conditions, water table along with frost line to be able to produce the design.

The preparation ought to include obtaining the ownership of the site as well as identifying the best place to established the building on the site. Being the owner, you must also develop a plan for construction of a perimeter foundation wall, which has to be correctly aligned so as to support the modular home upon arrival. One vital piece of the plan is to plan a 30-foot diameter space positioned in close proximity to the foundation and totally free of trees and wires which is completely level so that you can position the construction crane employed to set in place components constantly in place around the foundation.

Creating Your Modular Home

The design of your new modular home will begin with establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your construction location. These need to be incorporated in the structure from the beginning, as well as integrated into the engineering step in the design. You will want designs for any attached garages, porches or outside patios as they’re not an element of the modular home design. It is essential for you to list what you want to plan into the home so that it can be determined that these will be included in your plan.

There are no limits to the square footage of your plan with modular homes; at present we see variations as large as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in 32 components, with the common range from 4 to 6 thousand sq ft within 10 to 12 components. Each house plan Express Modular makes available are constructed this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Installation of Your New Structure

Once the assembly of your sections is complete and they’re brought to your property location we start the important phase of the home’s installation – the setting of the sections by the installation crew using construction crane gear. Once they’re placed, the final stage of your installment will be the finishing of the installation of utilities, painting, installing the floors, along with the installation of your appliances. Cleaning top to bottom and tests makes certain everything is in excellent condition and the last home inspections as well as occupancy permits will be secured. Generally, the outer perimeter entrance, patios, paths and decks are set up to complete the work and the home is set for moving in.
