Designing A New Modular Home

Design for your new modular home starts with ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the development location. These have to be incorporated within the structure from the beginning, as well as incorporated into any engineering phase in the design. When planning a modular home, you will need layouts for your attached car ports, verandas or decks since they are included in the modular home plan. is vital for you to list what you want to plan into the home so that it can be determined that these will be incorporated into the plan.

There is no limit to the square footage to the plan using modular homes; presently there are designs as large as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . built in 32 segments, with your common range from four to six thousand square feet within 10 to 12 modules. Each and every home Express Modular sells are designed in this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.

When the construction of your modules is finished and they’re brought to your property site we begin the key stage of the home’s installation – the placing of your sections by the installation crew using construction crane equipment. As soon as they’re placed, the final step of the installation will be the completion of the installation of utilities, painting, installation of all the floors, along with the create of your appliances. Cleaning top to bottom and tests makes certain everything is in proper working order and the remaining home inspections as well as occupancy permits will be completed. Typically, the external perimeter drive way, porches, paths and patio decking are set up to finish the work and then the residence is set for moving in.
