Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, a new Harrison home requires significant and thoughtful preparation that should be carried out at the start of process. Your home is going to comply with all building codes but you’ll need to prepare for the perimeter line locations, and obtain virtually all normal construction permits. Additionally, you need to determine soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line to enable you to produce the new design.

The preparation must include obtaining the property and pinpointing where you should set the building within the property. Being the owner, you also need to establish a plan for the building of a perimeter foundation wall structure, that needs to be properly aligned to be able to support the modular home when installed. One particular vital piece of your program will be to have a 30-foot diameter space situated close to the foundation that is devoid of trees and wires which is completely level in order to position the building crane utilized to set all of the modules constantly in place on the foundation.

Designing A New Modular Home

Design for a new modular home will begin by determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the development site. All of these need to be incorporated during the design from the beginning, as well as built into the engineering phase of the design. When planning a modular home, you’ll want layouts for your attached car ports, porches or outdoor patios since they are not an element of the modular home plan. It is important for you to list what you want to plan into the home so that it can be established that these can be included in your design.

There is no limit to the square footage to the plan with modular homes; presently we see layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . built in Thirty two segments, with the typical range between 4,000 to 6,000 square feet within ten to twelve components. All of the home designs Express Modular sells are constructed this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Installing The Prefabricated Home

Once the assembly of your modules is complete and they’re brought to your building site we start the crucial stage of your home’s assembly – the setting of the sections by the assembly crew utilizing construction crane equipment. When they’re positioned, the last step of your installment is the finishing the installation of utilities, painting, installing all the floors, as well as the set-up of the appliances. Cleaning and testing makes sure all things are in proper working order and the last home inspections and occupancy permits can be secured. Typically, the outer perimeter entrance, patios, walks and patio decking are installed to complete the project and the residence is ready for moving in.
