Building A Modular Home in Currituck
with Express Modular
With modular construction, your brand-new Currituck home will demand significant and thoughtful preparation that must be accomplished at the beginning of process. Your new home will conform to all of the local building codes but you will still need to prepare for the boundary line settings, and have virtually all usual construction permits. Furthermore, you must identify soil type and conditions, water table and frost line so that you can develop the design.
Your planning should incorporate acquiring the ownership of the site as well as choosing the best place to set your house on the property. As the property owner, you will need to also establish a plan for the construction of a perimeter foundation wall structure, which needs to be perfectly aligned in order to support the modules upon arrival. One critical piece of the plan is to have a 30-foot diameter area located in close proximity to the foundation and free from trees and wires that’s perfectly level to be able to position the construction crane used to set components constantly in place on the foundation.

Designing A New Modular Home
Design for a new modular home will start with ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your building site. All of these must be utilized within the structure from the beginning, and built into the engineering step in the plan. You’ll want layouts for your attached car ports, verandas or outside patios as they are not a part of the modular home design. It is essential that you list what you need to design into the home so it can be established that these can be included in the design.
There are no limits to the square footage to the design using modular homes; presently we see designs as large as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . constructed in Thirty-two components, with your common range between 4 to 6 thousand square feet within 10 to 12 modules. All of the home designs Express Modular provides are designed this way, including our modular log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.
Installation of The New Home
After the assembly of the sections is done and they’re brought to your property location we start the important step of the home’s assembly – the placing of the modules by the assembly team utilizing construction crane gear. Once they’re positioned, the last step of the installation will be the completion of installing utilities, painting, installation of the floors, as well as the set-up of the equipment. Cleansing and testing makes sure all things are in proper working order and that the last home inspections as well as occupancy permits can be completed. Generally, all the external perimeter entrance, porches, walks along with patio decking are set up to finish the project and the house is ready for moving in.
Express Modular residences are designed “greener” and are usually even more energy efficient as compared to conventional homes of the past. About fifty regional or national green home labeling programs all around the U.S. While each program approaches eco-friendly building a little differently, each incorporates important resources for further study.
