What’s Needed When Planning Your Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, your new Saint Louis dwelling will need substantial and thoughtful preparation that must be completed at the beginning of your project process. Your new home will conform to all of the local building codes but you’ll need to arrange for the perimeter line locations, and obtain all local building permits. Moreover, you must ascertain soil type and conditions, water table along with frost line in order to create your design.

The planning should involve buying the property or home as well as determining where you can set the structure on the property. As the property owner, you will need to also develop a plan for building of the perimeter foundation wall structure, that must be perfectly square in order to support the modular home when installed. One particular essential piece of your plan will be to have a 30-foot diameter area positioned in close proximity to the foundation and totally free of trees and wires that is perfectly level so that you can place the construction crane employed to set the actual components around the footing.

Creating A New 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 site. These need to be integrated within the layout from the outset, and integrated into the engineering phase of the plan. When planning a modular home, you’ll want layouts for your attached garages, porches or decks since they are not part of the modular home plan. It is important that you list what you want to design into the home so that it can be established that these can be included into the design.

There are no limits to the square footage of your design using modular homes; presently we see layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 square feet built in 32 components, with your typical range between 4 to 6 thousand sq ft in ten to twelve components. Each and every home Express Modular provides are built this way, including our modular log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

After the construction of the modules is done and they’re brought to your property location we start the important phase of your assembly – the setting of your sections by the installation team using construction crane gear. As soon as these are installed, the last step of your installation is the completion of the installation of utilities, painting, installing the floor coverings, and the installation of the equipment. Cleansing and testing makes sure all aspects are in good working order and the remaining home inspections as well as occupancy permits can be completed. Commonly, the outer perimeter entrance, patios, walks along with decks are set up to complete the project and then the home is ready for moving in.
