Designing A New Modular Home

Design for a new modular home starts by establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your construction site. All of these must be utilized during the design from the beginning, and incorporated into any engineering phase of the design. You will need layouts for any attached garages, porches or decks since they are not an element of the modular home design. It is essential that you list what you want to plan into the home so it can be determined that these will be incorporated into the plan.

There are no limits to the square footage to the plan with modular homes; currently we see designs as big as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . built in 32 modules, with the typical range between 4 to 6 thousand sq ft within ten to twelve modules. All of the home designs Express Modular provides are built in this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.

Installing A Modular Dwelling

After the assembly of the sections is done and they’re delivered to your home site we start the crucial phase of your assembly – the setting of your components by the installation crew employing construction crane equipment. Once they are placed, the last phase of your installment is the completing the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the floor coverings, and the installation of your home appliances.
