How To Start Planning Your Own Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Building of your new Mooresville abode requires essential and thoughtful planning that must be done at the start of process. Your abode is going to comply with all building code requirements but you will still need to plan for the boundary line locations, and have virtually all normal building permits. Additionally, you must establish soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line for you to develop the new design.

The planning should incorporate buying the real estate along with deciding where to set your house on the site. As the owner, you must also create a plan for the building of the perimeter foundation wall, which needs to be correctly aligned so as to support the modules when installed. One vital piece of the program will be to have a 30-foot diameter area placed near the perimeter foundation that is clear of trees and wires that’s perfectly level in order to position the building crane employed to set in place the actual modules in position on the footing.

Creating A New Modular Home

Design for a new modular home will start with determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the building location. All of these must be utilized during the structure from the beginning, and incorporated into the engineering phase in the plan. When planning a modular home, you’ll want designs for your attached car ports, porches or outdoor patios as they are included in the modular home plan. It is important for you to list what you want to design for your residence so it can be established that these can be included into the plan.

There is no limit to the size of of your plan with modular homes; presently there are variations as big as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in Thirty-two segments, with your typical range from four to six thousand sq ft in ten to twelve sections. All of the home designs Express Modular makes available are created this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.

Installation of The New Home

After the assembly of the sections is finished and they are delivered to your property location we begin the crucial stage of the home’s installation – the setting of your sections by the installation crew using construction crane gear. When these are installed, the final stage of your installation would be the finishing of the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the floors, and the set-up of the equipment. Cleansing top to bottom and testing ensures everything is in good condition and that the final inspections as well as occupancy permits can be secured. Normally, the external perimeter entrance, porches, walks as well as patio decking are set up to finish the work and the house is set for occupancy.
