Building A Modular Home in Richmond

with Express Modular

With modular construction, a new Richmond residence will need essential and thoughtful investigation which should be accomplished early in the project strategy. Your abode will definitely conform to all building code requirements but you’ll still need to arrange for the border line settings, and obtain virtually all local building permits. Additionally, you will need to determine soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line for you to produce the new design.

Your planning must feature obtaining the ownership of the site along with choosing where you should set the house on the site. Being the owner, you will need to also establish a plan for the development of a perimeter foundation wall, which has to be correctly square to be able to support the modules upon arrival. One essential item of the plan would be to have a thirty-foot diameter area positioned close to the perimeter foundation that is totally free of trees and wires which is perfectly level so that you can position the construction crane employed to set components around the foundation.

Planning Your Modular Home

Design for your new modular home will begin with ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your construction location. All of these need to be utilized within the design from the outset, as well as employed in the engineering step of your design. When planning a modular home, you’ll need designs for any attached car ports, verandas or decks as they’re not a part of the modular home design. It is essential that you list what you want to design into the home so it can be established that these can be included into your plan.

There are no limits to the size of of your plan using modular homes; currently there are variations as large as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . built in 32 components, with your common range from four to six thousand square feet in ten to twelve components. Each home design Express Modular sells are designed in this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Once the construction of your modules is done and they are transported to your home site we begin the crucial step of your home’s assembly – the placing of your sections by the installation team using construction crane gear. As soon as they’re installed, the last phase of the installment will be the completion of installing utilities, painting, installation of the floor coverings, and the set-up of your appliances. Cleaning and tests ensures all aspects are in proper condition and the remaining home inspections and occupancy permits can be secured. Generally, all the outer perimeter driveway, patios, paths and patio decking are set up to finish the project and then the house is set for occupancy.
