How To Begin Creating Your Own Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, your brand-new Elizabeth City dwelling will demand substantial and specific preparation that needs to be accomplished at the start of the project strategy. Your new abode will conform to all building code requirements but you will still need to arrange for the boundary line locations, and obtain all normal construction permits. In addition, you need to establish soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line so as to create your new design.

The preparation must involve buying the ownership of the site and pinpointing where to set the building on the site. As the owner, you will need to also establish a plan for building of a perimeter foundation wall structure, that needs to be completely square so as to support the modular home upon arrival. One particular critical item of the program will be to plan a thirty-foot diameter space situated near the foundation that is clear of trees and wires which is perfectly level to be able to place the building crane utilized to set the actual modules in position around the footing.
