What’s Needed When Designing Your Own Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of a new Nampa home will require sizeable and thoughtful preparation which should be accomplished at the outset of your project strategy. Your residence will definitely comply with all of the local building code requirements but you’ll need to plan for the border line locations, and obtain all normal construction permits. Moreover, you will need to find out soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line so as to produce the new design.

Your planning needs to involve purchasing property and deciding where to established the building within the property. Being the owner, you also need to establish a plan for the development of the perimeter foundation wall, which has to be perfectly aligned in order to support the modular home upon arrival. One particular crucial item of the plan will be to have a 30-foot diameter space located in close proximity to the foundation and free from trees and wires which is perfectly level to be able to place the construction crane used to set in place the modules around the foundation.

Designing Your Modular Home

Design for a new modular home will begin by establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your development site. All of these must be incorporated in the design from the start, as well as incorporated into the engineering phase in the plan. When planning a modular home, you’ll need designs for your attached garage areas, verandas or outdoor patios since they are not part of the modular home design. is very important that you list what you want to plan for your residence so that it can be established that these will be included into the plan.

There are no limits to the size of of your design using modular homes; currently we see layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 square feet built in Thirty-two components, with your common range from 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft in ten to twelve modules. All of the home designs Express Modular sells are built this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.

After the construction of your modules is finished and they’re transported to your home location we begin the crucial phase of the home’s assembly – the placing of your sections by the installation team employing construction crane gear. As soon as they’re positioned, the last stage of the installment is the finishing of the installation of utilities, painting, installing all the floors, along with the installation of the appliances. Cleaning top to bottom and tests ensures everything is in good condition and that the last home inspections and occupancy permits will be completed. Commonly, the outer perimeter driveway, patios, walks along with decks are set up to complete the project and the home is ready for moving in.
