Creating A New Modular Home

The design of a new modular home will begin by establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your construction site. All of these have to be incorporated during the layout from the beginning, as well as employed in the engineering step in the design. When planning a modular home, you will need layouts for any attached garages, verandas or decks as they are not an element of the modular home design. It is essential for you to catalog what you need to plan into the home so it can be determined that these can be included into your plan.

There are no limits to the square footage to the plan using modular homes; currently we see layouts as large as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in 32 modules, with your common range from four to six thousand sq ft within 10 to 12 modules. Each home design Express Modular sells are designed this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.
