Building A Modular Home in Oxford

with Express Modular

With modular construction, a new Oxford home requires significant and specific planning which should be completed at the outset of the project process. Your dwelling will certainly conform to all building codes but you will still need to plan for the boundary line locations, and obtain virtually all usual construction permits. Additionally, you will have to establish soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in an effort to develop your new design.

The preparation should incorporate acquiring the property or home along with identifying the best place to established the house within the property. As the owner, you will need to also develop a plan for the development of a perimeter foundation wall structure, that needs to be perfectly square in order to support the modular home when installed. One essential piece of the plan will be to plan a 30-foot diameter space located in close proximity to the perimeter foundation and free from trees and wires that is perfectly level to be able to place the construction crane used to set in place the actual components on the foundation.

Creating Your Modular Home

The design of a new modular home starts by establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the building location. All of these need to be incorporated within the structure from the start, and integrated into any engineering step of your plan. When planning a modular home, you’ll need designs for any attached garages, verandas or outdoor patios as they are not an element of the modular home plan. It is essential for you to list what you want to plan into the home so it can be established that these will be included into your design.

There is no limit to the size of to the plan using modular homes; at present we see designs as large as 1500 to 3000 square feet built in 32 components, with your common range between 4,000 to 6,000 square feet within ten to twelve components. All of the home designs Express Modular offers are constructed in this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.

After the assembly of your sections is done and they’re brought to your home site we start the key step of your home’s installation – the placing of your sections by the assembly crew employing construction crane gear. Once they’re placed, the final stage of your set up will be the finishing the installation of utilities, painting, installation of all the flooring, and the create of the home appliances. Cleaning and testing makes certain everything is in proper condition and the last inspections and occupancy permits can be completed. Typically, all the outer perimeter drive way, patios, walks along with decking are set up to finish the work and the residence is set for moving in.
