Building A Modular Home
with Express Modular
Modular Construction of your own Farmington home will demand substantial and thoughtful planning which needs to be accomplished at the outset of the project process. Your new home will certainly conform to all local building code requirements but you will need to prepare for the boundary line locations, and have all local construction permits. In addition, you need to ascertain soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in an effort to create your new design.
The preparation ought to incorporate buying the real estate along with determining the best place to set your house on the site. As the property owner, you will need to also develop a plan for building of the perimeter foundation wall structure, which has to be properly square to be able to support the modular home when installed. One particular essential piece of your plan will be to plan a thirty-foot diameter area situated near the foundation that is totally free of trees and wires which is completely level so that you can position the construction crane used to set in place all the components around the foundation.

Planning Your Modular Home
The design of a new modular home will begin with ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the development location. These need to be integrated during the layout from the beginning, as well as incorporated into any engineering step in the design. You will need layouts for your attached garages, verandas or outdoor patios since they are not part of the modular home design. It is important that you list what you want to plan into the home so it can be determined that these can be included into your plan.
There is no limit to the size of to the plan with modular homes; at present we see layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in Thirty-two modules, with your common range from four to six thousand sq ft within ten to twelve modules. Each and every floor plan Express Modular makes available are designed in this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.
Installing The Prefabricated Dwelling
After the assembly of the modules is complete and they are delivered to your building location we begin the important phase of your home’s assembly – the placing of your components by the assembly crew using construction crane gear. Once these are installed, the last phase of the installment is the completion of installing utilities, painting, installation of the floors, as well as the installation of your home appliances. Cleansing and testing makes sure all things are in good condition and the final home inspections and occupancy permits will be completed. Commonly, all the outer perimeter drive way, porches, walks as well as decking are set up to complete the project and then the residence is ready for moving in.
