Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, a new East Helena residence will demand substantive and thoughtful investigation that should be accomplished early in your project process. Your new abode is going to conform to all of the local building codes but you’ll need to plan for the perimeter line locations, and obtain all usual building permits. Moreover, you need to ascertain soil type and conditions, water table and frost line so as to create the design.

The planning must feature obtaining the property as well as deciding where you should established the house within the site. As the property owner, you will need to also develop a plan for development of the perimeter foundation wall, which must be perfectly square so as to support the modules when installed. One critical item of the plan is to plan a 30-foot diameter area located in close proximity to the foundation that is free from trees and wires that is perfectly level in order to position the construction crane used to set in place the actual components around the footing.
