How to Plan Today’s Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, your brand-new Southern Md Facility home will need essential and specific preparation that needs to be finished at the outset of the project process. Your new dwelling will comply with all building codes but you’ll need to plan for the perimeter line locations, and have virtually all building permits. Furthermore, you will need to find out soil type and conditions, water table along with frost line in an effort to create the new design.

The preparation needs to include obtaining the ownership of the site and determining the best place to established the house on the site. As the property owner, you will need to also create a plan for development of the perimeter foundation wall, that must be properly square in order to support the modular home when installed. One essential item of the program will be to plan a 30-foot diameter space placed close to the perimeter foundation and devoid of trees and wires that is completely level to be able to place the construction crane utilized to set all the modules in position around the footing.
