Building A Modular Home
with Express Modular
With modular construction, your own Baltimore home will demand essential and specific investigation which needs to be accomplished at the start of your project process. Your residence is going to conform to all of the local building code requirements but you will still need to prepare for the perimeter line locations, and obtain all normal construction permits. In addition, you need to ascertain soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in an effort to produce your new design.
The preparation needs to feature acquiring the property or home and identifying the best place to set your house on the site. As the owner, you also need to develop a plan for the development of the perimeter foundation wall structure, that needs to be properly aligned in order to support the modules upon arrival. One critical item of the program is to plan a thirty-foot diameter space situated close to the foundation that is devoid of trees and wires that’s completely level in order to place the building crane used to set in place all the modules around the footing.

Designing A New Modular Home
Design for a new modular home starts by ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your building location. These have to be utilized during the structure from the start, as well as built into any engineering phase of your plan. You’ll want designs for your attached car ports, porches or outside patios since they are not a part of the modular home plan. is vital for you to catalog what you need to design for your residence so that it can be determined that these can be incorporated in the design.
There are no limits to the square footage of your design using modular homes; currently there are designs as large as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in 32 modules, with the typical range from 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft in ten to twelve components. All of the home designs Express Modular offers are designed in this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.
