Moreover, you need to identify soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line in order to create the new design.

Your preparation should incorporate purchasing ownership of the site as well as determining where to established the building within the property. Being the property owner, you also need to develop a plan for building of the perimeter foundation wall structure, that needs to be properly aligned so as to support the modular home when installed.

Creating Your Modular Home

Design for your new modular home starts by determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your construction location. These have to be utilized within the layout from the start, as well as employed in the engineering phase of the design. When planning a modular home, you will need layouts for any attached garages, verandas or outside patios since they are not a part of the modular home plan. is significant that you catalog what you need to plan for your residence so that it can be determined that these can be incorporated into your design.

There is no limit to the square footage to the design using modular homes; at present we see variations as large as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in Thirty two modules, with your typical range from 4 to 6 thousand sq ft within 10 to 12 sections.

When they are installed, the final phase of your set up will be the finishing installing utilities, painting, installation of the floor coverings, and the set-up of the appliances.

Typically, the outer perimeter driveway, porches, walks along with patio decking are installed to complete the project and then the house is ready for occupancy.
