Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of a new Grenada home will need significant and thoughtful preparation that must be accomplished at the beginning of process. Your new abode is going to conform to all of the building code requirements but you will still need to plan for the boundary line settings, and have virtually all normal building permits. Furthermore, you need to ascertain soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in an effort to produce the design.

The preparation needs to include acquiring the real estate along with determining where to set your house on the property. As the property owner, you also need to develop a plan for the development of the perimeter foundation wall, which needs to be perfectly square to be able to support the modular home upon arrival. One crucial piece of the plan will be to plan a 30-foot diameter area placed close to the perimeter foundation and devoid of trees and wires that’s perfectly level in order to place the construction crane employed to set in place the actual components in position on the foundation.

Planning Your Modular Home

The design of a new modular home will begin by determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the building location. All of these have to be integrated in the design from the outset, and incorporated into the engineering phase in the plan. When planning a modular home, you will need designs for your attached garages, verandas or outside patios as they’re not a part of the modular home plan. It is essential that you list what you need to plan for your residence so that it can be established that these can be included in your plan.

There is no limit to the size of to the design using modular homes; at present we see variations as large as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . constructed in 32 components, with the common range from 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft within ten to twelve modules. All of the home designs Express Modular provides are built in this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

After the construction of your sections is finished and they’re brought to your property location we start the important phase of the home’s installation – the placing of the modules by the installation team employing construction crane equipment. When these are installed, the last phase of the installation will be the finishing of installing utilities, painting, installation of all the floors, along with the installation of the equipment. Cleaning and testing ensures all aspects are in excellent condition and the last inspections as well as occupancy permits will be completed. Usually, all the outer perimeter driveway, porches, walks and decking are installed to complete the project and the home is ready for occupancy.
