Designing Your Modular Home

The design of a new modular home starts with ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your building site. These need to be utilized in the design from the beginning, as well as incorporated into the engineering phase of the plan. You will want layouts for any attached garages, verandas or outdoor patios as they are not part of the modular home plan.
