What’s Needed When Creating A Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of your brand-new Hot Springs National Park residence will need substantive and thoughtful preparation which needs to be completed at the start of your project strategy. Your dwelling will certainly comply with all building code requirements but you will still need to plan for the perimeter line locations, and obtain all local construction permits. Additionally, you need to identify soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line in order to create your new design.

Your preparation should include purchasing property and pinpointing where you can set the house on the site. Being the owner, you will need to also establish a plan for the development of a perimeter foundation wall structure, that has to be properly aligned so as to support the modular home when installed. One particular essential piece of the plan would be to have a 30-foot diameter area placed in close proximity to the foundation that is totally free of trees and wires that is perfectly level so that you can place the building crane employed to set in place modules in position on the footing.

Designing Your Modular Home

Design for a new modular home will begin with establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your building site. All of these need to be incorporated during the structure from the start, and employed in any engineering phase in the plan. When planning a modular home, you will need designs for any attached garages, porches or outside patios as they’re not a part of the modular home plan. is very important for you to catalog what you need to plan for your residence so it can be established that these can be incorporated in the plan.

There is no limit to the size of of your plan with modular homes; currently we see variations as large as 1500 to 3000 sq ft constructed in 32 segments, with your common range from four to six thousand sq ft in 10 to 12 sections. Each house plan Express Modular makes available are created this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Beginning Install of A Modular Home Structure

After the construction of the modules is done and they are transported to your property site we begin the key step of your home’s assembly – the placing of your modules by the assembly team employing construction crane equipment. Once these are installed, the final stage of your installation will be the completion of the installation of utilities, painting, installing the floor coverings, as well as the set-up of your equipment. Cleaning and tests ensures all things are in proper condition and that the final inspections as well as occupancy permits can be completed. Generally, the external perimeter entrance, porches, walks along with decking are set up to complete the project and the residence is set for moving in.
