Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, your own Galena home will demand essential and specific investigation that should be carried out at the outset of process. Your new home is going to comply with all of the building code requirements but you will need to arrange for the perimeter line settings, and obtain virtually all usual construction permits. On top of that, you need to identify soil type and conditions, water table and frost line so as to create the new design.

The planning needs to incorporate obtaining the property or home as well as deciding where to established the house on the site. Being the owner, you will need to also establish a plan for construction of a perimeter foundation wall structure, which needs to be completely aligned in order to support the modular home when installed. One essential piece of the plan will be to have a 30-foot diameter space situated in close proximity to the foundation and free from trees and wires that is completely level so that you can place the construction crane utilized to set the modules around the footing.

Once they are installed, the last step of your installation will be the finishing of installing utilities, painting, installing the flooring, along with the installation of the home appliances.
