Building A Modular Home in Chico

with Express Modular

Modular Building of your new Chico abode will require essential and specific preparation that needs to be finished at the start of strategy. Your residence will conform to all of the local building code requirements but you’ll still need to prepare for the boundary line locations, and obtain all local construction permits. On top of that, you will need to determine soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line so as to develop the new design.

Your planning ought to feature purchasing ownership of the site as well as deciding where to set the building within the site. Being the property owner, you will need to also establish a plan for building of the perimeter foundation wall structure, which has to be perfectly aligned to be able to support the modular home upon arrival. One particular crucial item of the plan will be to plan a 30-foot diameter area located near the perimeter foundation and clear of trees and wires that is completely level so that you can position the construction crane utilized to set in place modules in position around the footing.

Designing Your Modular Home

Design for a new modular home will begin by establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the development location. These must be integrated during the layout from the start, and built into the engineering step in the design. When planning a modular home, you will need designs for your attached garage areas, verandas or outside patios as they’re not a part of the modular home design. It is essential that you list what you want to plan into the home so it can be determined that these will be included in the design.

There is no limit to the size of of your design with modular homes; currently we see variations as big as 1500 to 3000 square feet built in 32 components, with your common range from 4 to 6 thousand square feet in 10 to 12 modules. Each and every home Express Modular provides are created in this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.

Installation of The New Modular Construction

Once the assembly of your modules is done and they’re transported to your building location we begin the important stage of your home’s installation – the setting of your sections by the installation team utilizing construction crane equipment. When they’re installed, the final step of your set up is the finishing installing utilities, painting, installing the floors, along with the set-up of your home appliances. Cleaning and tests makes certain all things are in good condition and the final inspections and occupancy permits will be secured. Normally, the external perimeter driveway, porches, walks as well as patio decking are set up to complete the work and the residence is ready for occupancy.
