How to Start Your Own Modular Home
with Express Modular
With modular construction, your brand-new Hammonton home will demand considerable and thoughtful planning that should be done at the start of your project process. Your new dwelling will comply with all local building code requirements but you’ll still need to arrange for the boundary line settings, and have all building permits. In addition, you need to identify soil type and conditions, water table and frost line for you to produce your new design.
The preparation should involve buying the property or home as well as determining where you can established your house on the property. As the property owner, you must also create a plan for the building of a perimeter foundation wall structure, that has to be correctly aligned in order to support the modules upon arrival. One particular crucial item of your plan would be to have a thirty-foot diameter space positioned close to the perimeter foundation that is totally free of trees and wires that is completely level in order to place the building crane employed to set in place the modules in position around the footing.
