Building A Modular Home in Pittsfield

with Express Modular

Modular Building of your brand-new Pittsfield home requires essential and specific planning that should be completed at the start of the project process. Your new home is going to comply with all local building code requirements but you’ll need to arrange for the border line settings, and obtain all building permits. On top of that, you will have to determine soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line in an effort to produce your design.

The planning ought to involve buying the real estate along with identifying where to established the building within the property. As the owner, you must also create a plan for building of the perimeter foundation wall, that must be completely aligned so as to support the modules when installed. One critical item of the plan is to have a 30-foot diameter space located near the foundation that is totally free of trees and wires that’s perfectly level so that you can position the construction crane used to set all of the modules constantly in place on the foundation.
