About Modular Home Construction


Designing A New Modular Home


Constructing off-site in a factory environment using modular construction techniques provides many inherent green advantages over historic, site-built construction. It does this by minimizing site disturbance, cutting down vehicle traffic, and reducing the building costs of modular homes. Building indoors means delays due to weather are essentially eliminated. Materials and supplies are ordered, received and safely stored in a dry warehouse so replacement due to weather damage or theft is eliminated. It also means that while your home is being built in the factory, that site development is happening concurrently, significantly reducing the the project timeframe. Modules are carefully sealed at the factory to protect your home while being delivered to your job site.


With factory construction, modular homes are completed to a level of about  75-85%. Once the home is on your property, Express Modular, will erect your home on the prepared foundation. The full process of transport, installation, and finish is strictly carried out. Onsite, the remainder of the finish work is done. The checklist of items includes: connection of utilities, interior and exterior button-up, and the balance of site work which may include porches, driveways, sidewalks, yard, etc. Most homes, once set on your foundation, are completed and ready to move into within about 6 weeks.

Flexible Design

Breaking barriers is what modern modular construction does when it comes to designing your custom home.  Big open spaces, vaulted ceilings, and oversized windows are several of the characteristics routinely found in today’s modular homes. No longer do you have to be tied to the inefficiencies, low quality, and prolonged build times inherent in onsitebuilding. Express Modular leads the pack when it comes converting your custom specifications into modular masterpieces. Whether the home you desire is a ranch, a cape cod, a chalet, a contemporary, a log cabin or something in between, the adaptable structural designs of modular homes can fulfill your requirements.

You can begin with an available home plan or create an entirely custom plan to take advantage of a modular homes design flexibility.  Even though beginning with an existing modular floor plan can be a great way to build your home, designing a custom home from scratch can often make more sense. If you want your home to have a unique shape or design or if you’re building your home to match a specialparcel of property you may be better off not using a standard plan. If you currently have a house plan, we can usually “modularize” the design to take advantage of the efficiencies of modular construction while staying faithful to your design. A good modular floor plan can provide you with the features and style you demand along with the healthy living and quality features you require.
