What’s Needed When Drafting Your Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of a new Weedsport dwelling will require substantial and specific investigation which needs to be finished at the outset of strategy. Your residence will conform to all building code requirements but you will need to prepare for the perimeter line locations, and have virtually all local construction permits. Additionally, you will need to identify soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in an effort to create the design.

The planning needs to feature acquiring the real estate as well as pinpointing where you should established the building on the site. As the owner, you also need to establish a plan for the development of the perimeter foundation wall structure, that must be completely aligned so as to support the modules when installed. One essential piece of your plan is to plan a 30-foot diameter space placed in close proximity to the perimeter foundation and clear of trees and wires which is completely level so that you can place the construction crane utilized to set the actual modules around the footing.

Planning 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. All of these must be utilized during the structure from the outset, as well as incorporated into the engineering step of your design. You’ll need designs for any attached car ports, porches or decks since they are included in the modular home design. It is essential for you to list what you need to plan for your residence so it can be established that these can be incorporated in your plan.

There is no limit to the square footage of your plan using modular homes; currently we see variations as large as 1500 to 3000 sq ft constructed in 32 components, with your common range between 4,000 to 6,000 square feet within 10 to 12 modules. Each home design Express Modular provides are created this way, including our modular log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Installing The Prefabricated Home

Once the construction of your modules is complete and they are transported to your building location we begin the important step of your assembly – the setting of the modules by the assembly crew utilizing construction crane equipment. When these are positioned, the final phase of your set up is the completing the installation of utilities, painting, installing all the floor coverings, and the installation of your equipment. Cleansing and testing ensures everything is in good condition and that the remaining home inspections as well as occupancy permits can be secured. Usually, all the external perimeter drive way, patios, walks as well as decking are set up to finish the project and then the residence is ready for occupancy.
