How to Plan Your Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of your brand-new Carolina Beach home requires substantial and specific planning which needs to be accomplished at the start of the project process. Your new abode is going to conform to all local building codes but you’ll need to arrange for the boundary line locations, and have virtually all usual construction permits. In addition, you need to ascertain soil type and conditions, water table and frost line to be able to create the new design.

Your preparation should include buying the ownership of the site along with identifying where you can established your house on the site. Being the property owner, you will need to also create a plan for the construction of a perimeter foundation wall structure, that has to be perfectly square so as to support the modular home when installed. One particular crucial piece of the plan will be to plan a 30-foot diameter space located close to the foundation that is clear of trees and wires that is completely level to be able to position the construction crane employed to set all of the components on the foundation.

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 location. These have to be integrated within the design from the beginning, as well as incorporated into any engineering phase of your design. You’ll need designs for your attached car ports, porches or decks as they are not a part of the modular home plan. It is important that you catalog what you need to design for your residence so it can be established that these can be incorporated into the plan.

There is no limit to the square footage of your plan with modular homes; at present there are layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 sq ft constructed in Thirty-two components, with your common range between 4,000 to 6,000 square feet within ten to twelve components. Each and every floor plan Express Modular offers are designed in this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.

After the assembly of the modules is done and they’re delivered to your home site we begin the important stage of your home’s installation – the placing of your components by the assembly crew utilizing construction crane equipment. As soon as they are placed, the final stage of your set up is the finishing of the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the floor coverings, as well as the create of the home appliances. Cleaning top to bottom and tests makes certain all aspects are in excellent condition and the final home inspections as well as occupancy permits will be completed. Generally, the outer perimeter entrance, porches, walks as well as decking are set up to finish the project and the residence is set for occupancy.
