A Way to Better Living With Modular Homes
There is no need to worry. By building indoors your custom home will be built to meet your precise requirements, with high quality materials, by experienced craftsmen, and will have a new home warranty. Modular construction permits you to take advantage of custom floor plans, large kitchens and more closet space. When you make up your mind to use modular building for your custom home you get to design your dream home, not fix-up somebody else’s. Modular homes offer design flexibility which permits you to have your home built to the precise standards that only building in a factory can provide. Your home is safeguarded from the weather and then prepped for transport to your home site.
Once your new custom home is placed at your home site, it will be rapidly and skillfully placed and connected to the foundation. When your family’s security is a high priority, the exceptional soundness of modular construction stands out. After Hurricane Andrew struck Florida, FEMA’s Mitigation Assessment Team executed a study of various building types and how well they endured the storm. In their synopsis, the Mitigation Assessment team stated that “overall, relatively minimal structural damage was noted in modular housing developments. The module-to-module combination of the units appears to have provided an inherently rigid system that performed much better than conventional residential framing.” Strong construction and a healthier living environment are coupled with outstanding design and finishes to make modular homes the obvious choice for your new home.
Creating A New Modular Home
Design for a new modular home will begin with establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the construction location. All of these have to be integrated within the layout from the beginning, and incorporated into any engineering step in the plan. You’ll want layouts for your attached garage areas, verandas or outside patios since they are not a part of the modular home plan. It is important for you to catalog what you need to plan for your residence so it can be established that these will be incorporated into the plan.
There are no limits to the square footage to the plan using modular homes; presently there are layouts as large as 1500 to 3000 sq ft constructed in Thirty-two components, with your common range between 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft within ten to twelve components. Each and every floor plan Express Modular offers are built in this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.
Many that are new to construction are becoming knowledgeable about the benefits of using “green” technology when constructing their custom home. Modular homes are a logical choice when “green” features are valued. The National Green Building Standard™ (NGBS) is the only residential green building rating system approved by ANSI as an American National Standard. The NGBS describes practices for the design and construction of all types of green residential buildings, renovations, and land developments. It centers mainly on three areas: lower operating costs, healthy homes, and sustainable lifestyle. Green building brings together a vast array of methods, approaches, and expertise to reduce and eventually end the effects of buildings on the environment and human health. There are more than a hundred Green Building Certification programs. Ultimately, the selection of a certification system for a new home depends upon that exact project; no certification system is a one-size-fits all.
Today’s modular homes take advantage of modern materials that don’t produce the health risks of items used in older homes and some newer site-built homes. These can include: mildew and mold, asbestos, Volatile Organic Compounds(VOCs), lead paint, etc. Environmentally friendly building is an integral part of the modular construction process. Constructing your custom home in a factory means consistent and efficient building processes. Many Green Building Programs literally award extra points for using modular construction because of the superior building process. Express Modular can help you earn your required level of “green”: from basic energy efficiency to net-zero and beyond.
