How to Start Today’s Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, your brand-new Orofino dwelling will need sizeable and specific preparation that must be completed at the start of the project process. Your abode is going to comply with all building code requirements but you will still need to arrange for the boundary line locations, and obtain virtually all local construction permits. On top of that, you must find out soil type and conditions, water table and frost line to be able to produce your design.

The preparation must incorporate acquiring the ownership of the site as well as choosing where you can set the structure within the site. Being the property owner, you must also develop a plan for development of the perimeter foundation wall structure, that needs to be properly square to be able to support the modules upon arrival. One particular vital piece of the program is to have a thirty-foot diameter space placed close to the perimeter foundation that is free from trees and wires that’s completely level in order to place the building crane used to set in place all of the modules in position on the footing.

Planning A New Modular Home

Design for a new modular home will begin with ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the building location. All of these must be utilized during the structure from the outset, and employed in the engineering step in the design. When planning a modular home, you will want layouts for any attached garages, porches or outdoor patios as they’re not a part of the modular home design. is vital that you catalog what you need to plan into the home so it can be determined 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 variations as big as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in 32 modules, with your common range between 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft within ten to twelve components. All of the home designs Express Modular offers are created this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.

Installation of The New Modular Structure

When the construction of your sections is finished and they are transported to your home location we begin the important phase of your installation – the placing of your modules by the assembly team employing construction crane gear. Once they’re placed, the last phase of the set up will be the completing the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the flooring, and the installation of the home appliances. Cleaning top to bottom and testing ensures all things are in proper working order and that the final home inspections and occupancy permits can be completed. Typically, the external perimeter drive way, patios, walks along with patio decking are installed to complete the work and then the house is set for moving in.
