How to Start Your Own Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of your brand-new Plant City home will require considerable and thoughtful investigation that needs to be done at the start of the project process. Your new home will definitely conform to all of the local building code requirements but you will still need to prepare for the boundary line locations, and have virtually all building permits. Additionally, you will need to identify soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line to be able to create your new design.

The preparation ought to incorporate buying the real estate along with identifying where you can set the building on the property. Being the owner, you will need to also develop a plan for the construction of the perimeter foundation wall structure, that needs to be completely aligned to be able to support the modules when installed. One vital piece of the program would be to have a 30-foot diameter area situated close to the foundation that is totally free of trees and wires which is completely level in order to position the construction crane utilized to set the modules in position around the footing.
