Building A Modular Home in Indianapolis

with Express Modular

With modular construction, your new Indianapolis residence will need considerable and specific planning that needs to be carried out at the outset of the project process. Your new dwelling will definitely comply with all of the building codes but you’ll need to prepare for the perimeter line settings, and obtain virtually all construction permits. In addition, you must ascertain soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in an effort to create your new design.

The planning should involve acquiring the property or home along with choosing where to established the structure on the site. As the owner, you will need to also create a plan for building of a perimeter foundation wall structure, that needs to be perfectly square in order to support the modular home when installed. One crucial item of the program would be to plan a 30-foot diameter space positioned close to the foundation that is free from trees and wires that is perfectly level so that you can position the construction crane utilized to set modules in position around the foundation.

Planning Your Modular Home

The design of your new modular home will start by determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your development site. These have to be incorporated in the structure from the start, as well as incorporated into any engineering phase in the design. You’ll want designs for your attached car ports, porches or decks as they’re not an element of the modular home design. It is essential for you to catalog what you need to plan for your residence so it can be determined that these will be incorporated in the plan.

There is no limit to the square footage of your design using modular homes; at present we see variations as big as 1500 to 3000 sq ft constructed in Thirty-two modules, with your typical range between 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft within 10 to 12 sections. Each house plan Express Modular makes available are created in this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.

Installation of The New Modular Home

After the assembly of your sections is complete and they’re delivered to your building site we start the important phase of the installation – the placing of your modules by the assembly crew employing construction crane gear. When they are installed, the last stage of your installment would be the finishing of the installation of utilities, painting, installing all the floors, and the create of your appliances. Cleansing top to bottom and tests makes sure everything is in good working order and the final inspections and occupancy permits can be secured. Usually, the outer perimeter driveway, patios, walks and decking are installed to finish the work and the house is ready for moving in.
