What’s Needed When Creating A Modular Home

Modular Building of a new Oakwood dwelling will demand significant and specific planning that should be finished at the start of your project process. Your abode is going to conform to all building codes but you will still need to plan for the boundary line settings, and obtain all usual building permits. Additionally, you need to establish soil type and conditions, water table and frost line to be able to develop your design.

Your planning ought to involve purchasing real estate and identifying where you should set your house on the property. As the owner, you must also develop a plan for construction of the perimeter foundation wall, which must be correctly square in order to support the modular home upon arrival. One essential piece of your plan will be to have a 30-foot diameter area positioned close to the perimeter foundation and totally free of trees and wires that is perfectly level in order to place the construction crane used to set the actual modules on the foundation.

7 Easy Steps to Get Started

Designing Your Modular Home

The design of your new modular home will start by determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your building site. These must be incorporated in the design from the start, as well as integrated into the engineering phase of the design. When planning a modular home, you will need designs for any attached garages, porches or decks as they are not an element of the modular home design. It is essential that you list what you want to design into the home so that it can be determined that these can be included in your design.

There is no limit to the size of of your design with modular homes; currently we see designs as big as 1500 to 3000 square feet built in 32 modules, with the typical range from 4 to 6 thousand square feet in 10 to 12 modules. All of the home designs Express Modular sells are created this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.

Once the construction of the modules is done and they are delivered to your home site we start the key step of your installation – the setting of the modules by the installation team using construction crane equipment. Once these are placed, the final phase of your installation will be the finishing of the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the flooring, and the create of the appliances. Cleaning and testing makes sure everything is in good working order and that the final inspections and occupancy permits can be secured. Usually, the outer perimeter driveway, porches, walks and decking are installed to complete the project and the home is ready for occupancy.
