Your new dwelling will comply with all of the building codes but you’ll still need to arrange for the perimeter line locations, and obtain all normal building permits. On top of that, you will need to identify soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in order to create the design.

Your preparation needs to involve buying the real estate and pinpointing where you should established your house on the site. Being the owner, you will need to also create a plan for development of a perimeter foundation wall structure, which must be completely aligned in order to support the modules when installed. One critical item of your plan will be to plan a thirty-foot diameter space located near the perimeter foundation that is free from trees and wires that’s perfectly level so that you can position the construction crane utilized to set in place all the components in position around the foundation.
