How To Start Creating Your Own Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, your new Pueblo dwelling will require significant and thoughtful planning that must be completed at the outset of strategy. Your new dwelling will certainly comply with all building codes but you’ll need to prepare for the border line locations, and have virtually all local building permits. On top of that, you will have to establish soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in an effort to produce your new design.

Your planning must feature acquiring the property or home and choosing where you should established the building on the property. Being the owner, you also need to create a plan for the building of a perimeter foundation wall, that has to be completely aligned to be able to support the modules upon arrival. One particular essential item of the plan would be to have a 30-foot diameter space located close to the perimeter foundation and totally free of trees and wires that’s perfectly level in order to place the building crane employed to set in place the components in position on the foundation.

Planning A New Modular Home

The design of your new modular home starts with ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the development location. All of these have to be integrated in the structure from the beginning, as well as included in any engineering step in the design. You’ll need designs for any attached car ports, verandas or decks since they are not an element of the modular home plan. is significant that you list what you need to plan for your residence so it can be established that these will be incorporated in your plan.

There is no limit to the square footage to the design with modular homes; presently we see designs as big as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in 32 components, with your typical range between 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft in 10 to 12 components. All of the home designs Express Modular provides are built in this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

When the assembly of the modules is completed and they’re delivered to your home location we begin the important step of the home’s assembly – the placing of the modules by the installation team using construction crane gear. Once these are installed, the last step of the installation will be the completion of the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the flooring, as well as the installation of the home appliances. Cleansing top to bottom and testing makes sure all aspects are in good working order and that the final home inspections and occupancy permits can be secured. Typically, the external perimeter driveway, porches, walks and patio decking are installed to complete the project and the house is set for occupancy.
