What’s Needed When Drafting Today’s Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of your new Jupiter dwelling will require substantial and thoughtful planning that must be accomplished at the beginning of strategy. Your home is going to comply with all local building code requirements but you’ll still need to arrange for the border line settings, and obtain all normal construction permits. Furthermore, you will have to identify soil type and conditions, water table and frost line to be able to create the new design.

The planning should feature obtaining the real estate and choosing where you can established your house on the property. As the owner, you must also develop a plan for the construction of the perimeter foundation wall, which must be properly aligned so as to support the modules when installed. One critical piece of the program would be to plan a 30-foot diameter area situated close to the foundation and free from trees and wires which is perfectly level to be able to place the building crane employed to set in place components in position around the footing.

Designing Your Modular Home

Design for your new modular home starts with determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the construction location. All of these have to be integrated during the layout from the outset, as well as built into any engineering step of your design. When planning a modular home, you’ll need layouts for any attached garages, porches or decks since they are not part of the modular home design. It is important that you list what you need to design for your residence so it can be determined that these can be included in your plan.

There is no limit to the square footage of your design using modular homes; at present we see designs as large as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in Thirty-two segments, with your typical range from 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft in ten to twelve components. All of the home designs Express Modular makes available are designed this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.

After the construction of your modules is complete and they’re brought to your property site we start the important stage of your installation – the placing of the modules by the assembly team utilizing construction crane gear. Once these are installed, the final stage of your installment would be the completing installing utilities, painting, installation of the floor coverings, and the create of the equipment. Cleaning top to bottom and testing makes sure everything is in proper condition and that the last inspections and occupancy permits can be secured. Generally, the outer perimeter drive way, porches, paths along with decking are set up to finish the project and then the house is ready for occupancy.


Building Green

Express Modular homes are made “greener” and are more energy efficient than traditional homes of the past. You can find many regional and national green home labeling programs nationwide. While such programs approach green construction a little differently, they all offer relatively good elements.

All the insulation as well as other resources used in production are designed in the your home right from the start. Energy-efficient home appliances are common and, using upgrades,your home can become more eco-friendly. The climate-control manufacturing setting as well as reusable supplies give further opportunities for an environmentally friendly home. Using low-flow fixtures on faucets, shower heads and sinks, your totally green modular home environment is completed.
