Creating Your Modular Home

The design of your new modular home will begin with ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your building site. These have to be utilized within the design from the outset, as well as employed in the engineering phase of your design. When planning a modular home, you’ll want designs for your attached garages, porches or outside patios since they are included in the modular home plan. It is important that you catalog what you want to plan for your residence so that it can be determined that these can be incorporated into your design.

There is no limit to the square footage of your design using modular homes; currently there are variations as large as 1500 to 3000 sq ft constructed in 32 segments, with the typical range from 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft within ten to twelve modules. All of the home designs Express Modular offers are designed this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.

When the assembly of the sections is finished and they are delivered to your building site we start the key step of your home’s installation – the placing of your sections by the installation crew using construction crane equipment. When these are placed, the final step of your installation will be the completion of installing utilities, painting, installing all the floors, and the create of your home appliances. Cleansing top to bottom and testing ensures all things are in proper working order and the remaining inspections as well as occupancy permits will be completed.
