What’s Needed When Creating Your Own Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, a new Kings Mountain abode will need substantial and specific preparation that should be completed at the start of process. Your new home will definitely comply with all of the building code requirements but you’ll need to arrange for the border line settings, and obtain all usual construction permits. Additionally, you will need to find out soil type and conditions, water table along with frost line to be able to create the design.

The planning should involve obtaining the ownership of the site and choosing the best place to established the house within the property. Being the owner, you also need to establish a plan for construction of the perimeter foundation wall, that needs to be perfectly square so as to support the modules upon arrival. One particular critical piece of your plan will be to have a 30-foot diameter space located close to the perimeter foundation and free from trees and wires that’s perfectly level in order to position the building crane used to set the components in position around the footing.
