Building A Modular Home in Gallipolis

with Express Modular

With modular construction, a new Gallipolis residence requires substantial and specific investigation which needs to be accomplished in the beginning your project process. Your abode will comply with all of the local building code requirements but you will still need to plan for the boundary line locations, and have all normal building permits. Additionally, you will have to determine soil type and conditions, water table along with frost line to be able to develop the design.

Your preparation must include purchasing property and deciding where you can set your house on the site. As the owner, you will need to also create a plan for construction of the perimeter foundation wall structure, which needs to be perfectly aligned to be able to support the modular home when installed. One particular vital item of the plan would be to have a thirty-foot diameter area located near the foundation and clear of trees and wires that’s perfectly level so that you can place the construction crane used to set all the modules around the footing.

Designing Your Modular Home

Design for your new modular home starts by ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the development site. All of these need to be incorporated in the layout from the outset, and included in any engineering step of your plan. When planning a modular home, you will want designs for your attached garage areas, porches or decks as they are not a part of the modular home plan. It is important that you list what you want to design for your residence so it can be established that these will be incorporated in your design.
