Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of your new Wichita residence requires substantial and thoughtful planning that must be finished at the beginning of the project strategy. Your dwelling is going to comply with all local building code requirements but you’ll still need to prepare for the boundary line locations, and have all normal building permits. On top of that, you need to find out soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line in order to develop your design.

Your preparation must include obtaining the property or home along with deciding the best place to set the structure within the site. As the property owner, you also need to create a plan for the building of a perimeter foundation wall, which has to be completely square to be able to support the modular home when installed. One particular essential piece of your program is to have a thirty-foot diameter space situated near the foundation and devoid of trees and wires that’s completely level in order to position the construction crane utilized to set the modules constantly in place on the foundation.

Planning A New Modular Home

Design for your new modular home will begin by determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your building location. These must be utilized in the design from the start, and included in the engineering step of the design. You’ll need designs for any attached garage areas, porches or outdoor patios as they are not part of the modular home design. It is essential that you list what you need to plan for your residence so that it can be determined that these will be incorporated in your plan.

There is no limit to the square footage to the design using modular homes; presently there are variations as large as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . built in 32 segments, with the common range from 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft within 10 to 12 sections.

Beginning Install of A New Prefabricated Home Structure

When the construction of your modules is complete and they are brought to your building location we begin the important phase of the installation – the placing of the sections by the assembly team utilizing construction crane equipment. As soon as these are placed, the final phase of the set up is the finishing of the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the floor coverings, along with the set-up of your equipment. Cleansing and tests makes certain everything is in excellent working order and that the last inspections as well as occupancy permits can be completed. Typically, the external perimeter driveway, porches, walks and decks are set up to finish the work and then the home is ready for moving in.
