Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Building of your new Naples dwelling will require significant and specific planning that needs to be done early in the project strategy. Your home is going to comply with all of the local building codes but you’ll still need to arrange for the boundary line settings, and have all building permits. Additionally, you must determine soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line in order to produce your design.

Your preparation needs to include obtaining the real estate and identifying where you can established your house on the property. Being the owner, you also need to create a plan for the building of the perimeter foundation wall structure, that has to be correctly aligned to be able to support the modular home upon arrival. One particular critical piece of the plan is to plan a thirty-foot diameter area situated near the foundation and free from trees and wires which is perfectly level in order to position the construction crane used to set components constantly in place around the footing.

Planning A New Modular Home

Design for your new modular home starts by ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the development location. All of these need to be integrated in the layout from the start, as well as included in any engineering step of your design. When planning a modular home, you’ll want designs for any attached car ports, porches or outside patios as they are not a part of the modular home design. It is important that you catalog what you want to plan into the home so that it can be established that these will be incorporated into the design.

There are no limits to the size of of your plan using modular homes; presently we see variations as large as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in 32 modules, with your typical range between 4 to 6 thousand square feet in 10 to 12 components. Each and every floor plan Express Modular sells are constructed in this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.

Installation of The New Modular Structure

Once the assembly of the modules is completed and they are delivered to your property site we start the key stage of the assembly – the placing of the modules by the installation crew utilizing construction crane gear. When they are positioned, the last phase of your installment would be the completion of the installation of utilities, painting, installing the floor coverings, along with the set-up of the home appliances. Cleansing and testing ensures everything is in good condition and that the last inspections as well as occupancy permits will be completed. Usually, the external perimeter drive way, patios, paths as well as patio decking are installed to complete the work and then the house is set for occupancy.
