How to Start A Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of your brand-new Fayetteville dwelling will demand considerable and thoughtful investigation which should be done at the start of process. Your new dwelling will certainly comply with all of the local building codes but you will still need to arrange for the boundary line settings, and have virtually all normal construction permits. In addition, you must find out soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in order to develop your new design.

The planning should involve purchasing real estate as well as pinpointing the best place to set the house on the property. Being the owner, you must also establish a plan for construction of a perimeter foundation wall, that has to be completely square so as to support the modular home upon arrival. One particular essential item of your plan is to have a thirty-foot diameter area situated in close proximity to the perimeter foundation and free from trees and wires that is perfectly level so that you can position the building crane utilized to set in place the actual components constantly in place around the foundation.

Creating A New Modular Home

The design of a new modular home starts with determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your building site. All of these must be integrated within the design from the beginning, and built into any engineering phase in the plan. You will need designs for your attached garage areas, verandas or decks since they are not an element of the modular home design. It is essential for you to catalog what you need to plan into the home so that it can be determined that these will be incorporated in the design.

There are no limits to the square footage of your design with modular homes; at present we see designs as large as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . built in Thirty-two modules, with your typical range between 4 to 6 thousand square feet within ten to twelve modules. Each and every home design Express Modular offers are constructed this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.

Beginning Install of The Prefabricated Home Structure

When the construction of the sections is done and they are brought to your building location we start the key stage of your home’s assembly – the placing of the components by the installation team using construction crane equipment. As soon as they are positioned, the final step of your installment would be the finishing the installation of utilities, painting, installing all the flooring, as well as the set-up of the appliances. Cleaning and tests ensures everything is in good condition and that the remaining inspections as well as occupancy permits can be secured. Normally, all the external perimeter entrance, porches, paths as well as decking are installed to finish the project and then the residence is set for occupancy.
