How to Get Started On Today’s Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Building of a new Chillicothe residence will need significant and specific investigation that needs to be finished in the beginning the project strategy. Your dwelling is going to conform to all of the building codes but you’ll still need to arrange for the perimeter line locations, and obtain all local construction permits. Furthermore, you will have to establish soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line to be able to produce the design.

Your planning should incorporate acquiring the property and pinpointing where you should set the structure on the site. As the owner, you also need to create a plan for building of the perimeter foundation wall structure, that has to be correctly square to be able to support the modules upon arrival. One crucial piece of your program is to have a 30-foot diameter space positioned close to the foundation and free from trees and wires that’s completely level in order to place the building crane employed to set modules in position on the foundation.

Planning Your Modular Home

The design of a new modular home will begin with determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the building location. These must be integrated within the design from the outset, and employed in any engineering step of the plan. You will need designs for your attached garage areas, verandas or outside patios since they are not part of the modular home design. It is important that you catalog what you want to design for your residence so it can be established that these will be incorporated into the plan.

There is no limit to the size of of your plan with modular homes; currently we see layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 sq ft constructed in Thirty-two modules, with the typical range between 4 to 6 thousand square feet in ten to twelve components. All of the home designs Express Modular makes available are created this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.

Installation of Your New Modular Construction

When the construction of the sections is finished and they’re transported to your property location we begin the crucial stage of the assembly – the setting of the modules by the installation team using construction crane equipment. Once these are installed, the final step of your installment is the finishing of the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the floor coverings, and the set-up of your equipment. Cleansing top to bottom and testing ensures all things are in good condition and that the remaining home inspections and occupancy permits can be secured. Generally, the external perimeter driveway, patios, paths as well as patio decking are set up to finish the work and the house is set for moving in.
