Designing A New Modular Home

The design of your new modular home starts with establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your construction site. These have to be utilized within the structure from the outset, as well as integrated into the engineering phase of the plan. You’ll need designs for any attached car ports, verandas or decks as they’re not part of the modular home plan. It is essential for you to list what you need to plan into the home so that it can be established that these can be included into your design.

There are no limits to the size of to the design with modular homes; at present there are variations as big as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . constructed in Thirty two components, with your common range between four to six thousand square feet in 10 to 12 modules. 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 assembly of your modules is complete and they are brought to your building site we begin the key phase of the home’s installation – the placing of the modules by the assembly crew using construction crane gear. When they are placed, the final step of your installation will be the finishing installing utilities, painting, installing the floor coverings, and the installation of the equipment. Cleansing top to bottom and testing ensures everything is in proper condition and that the remaining inspections as well as occupancy permits will be completed. Generally, all the external perimeter driveway, porches, walks and patio decking are installed to complete the work and then the house is ready for occupancy.
