What’s Needed When Designing A Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of your brand-new Bismarck residence will need substantial and thoughtful planning that should be carried out at the start of the project process. Your dwelling will certainly conform to all building codes but you will still need to plan for the boundary line settings, and have all building permits. Moreover, you will need to find out soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in an effort to create the new design.

The planning needs to feature obtaining the property or home and deciding where you should set the structure on the site. Being the owner, you will need to also create a plan for development of the perimeter foundation wall, that needs to be completely square in order to support the modules upon arrival. One critical piece of the plan will be to plan a thirty-foot diameter area placed close to the perimeter foundation that is free from trees and wires that’s perfectly level so that you can place the construction crane utilized to set the modules in position on the foundation.

Designing Your Modular Home

Design for your new modular home will start with determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your development site. All of these have to be integrated within the design from the outset, and incorporated into the engineering step of your plan. When planning a modular home, you’ll want designs for your attached garage areas, verandas or outside patios as they’re not part of the modular home design. It is important that you list what you need to plan into the home so that it can be established that these will be incorporated into the plan.

There are no limits to the size of to the design with modular homes; at present we see layouts as large as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in Thirty-two segments, with your typical range from 4 to 6 thousand square feet in ten to twelve components. All of the home designs Express Modular offers are created in this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.

Once the construction of your modules is done and they’re delivered to your building site we start the key stage of the home’s assembly – the setting of your modules by the assembly crew using construction crane equipment. When they’re installed, the last phase of your installation is the completing installing utilities, painting, installation of the flooring, along with the installation of the home appliances. Cleaning top to bottom and testing makes sure all things are in excellent condition and that the final home inspections and occupancy permits will be secured. Normally, the outer perimeter entrance, patios, paths and decking are installed to complete the work and the residence is set for moving in.
