Planning Your Modular Home

Design for a new modular home will begin by determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the construction location. All of these must be utilized within the design from the outset, and incorporated into any engineering step of your design. You will want layouts for your attached garage areas, verandas or outdoor patios since they are not part of the modular home plan. It is essential that you catalog what you need to plan into the home so that it can be determined that these will be included in your design.

There are no limits to the square footage to the design using modular homes; at present there are designs as large as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in Thirty two modules, with your common range between 4 to 6 thousand sq ft in 10 to 12 components. All of the home designs Express Modular offers are built in this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.

Once the construction of the modules is completed and they are transported to your home site we start the important stage of the assembly – the setting of the modules by the assembly team using construction crane gear. When they’re placed, the final phase of your installment will be the finishing the installation of utilities, painting, installation of all the floors, and the create of the home appliances. Cleansing and tests makes sure all aspects are in excellent working order and the remaining inspections and occupancy permits will be completed. Normally, all the outer perimeter drive way, patios, paths along with patio decking are set up to finish the work and the house is ready for occupancy.
