Creating Your Modular Home

Design for a new modular home will begin with ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your development site. These need to be incorporated in the design from the beginning, as well as included in any engineering step in the design. You will want layouts for your attached garages, verandas or outside patios as they’re not an element of the modular home design. It is important for you to list what you want to plan into the home so that it can be established that these can be incorporated in your design.

There are no limits to the square footage of your plan using modular homes; presently there are layouts as large as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in 32 components, with the typical range between 4 to 6 thousand square feet within 10 to 12 modules. Each home design Express Modular offers are created in this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.

After the construction of your sections is complete and they are brought to your building site we begin the key stage of the assembly – the setting of the modules by the assembly crew using construction crane gear. Once they’re installed, the final phase of the set up is the finishing installing utilities, painting, installation of all the floors, and the installation of your appliances. Cleansing top to bottom and testing ensures all things are in good working order and that the last home inspections as well as occupancy permits can be secured. Typically, the external perimeter entrance, porches, walks and patio decking are set up to finish the work and then the house is set for occupancy.
