Building A Modular Home
with Express Modular
Modular Construction of a new Tahlequah home will require substantial and thoughtful planning that should be carried out at the outset of your project process. Your abode is going to conform to all building code requirements but you’ll still need to arrange for the perimeter line settings, and obtain virtually all usual construction permits. Moreover, you must determine soil type and conditions, water table along with frost line in order to develop the design.
Your planning must include purchasing property along with pinpointing where you should set your house within the site. As the property owner, you will need to also create a plan for the construction of the perimeter foundation wall structure, that must be completely square to be able to support the modules when installed. One particular critical item of the plan would be to plan a 30-foot diameter space placed near the perimeter foundation that is devoid of trees and wires that is completely level so that you can place the building crane used to set the actual components constantly in place on the foundation.

Planning Your Modular Home
The design of a new modular home will begin with ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the construction location. These need to be incorporated in the design from the start, as well as integrated into any engineering step in the design. You’ll need layouts for any attached garage areas, verandas or outside patios as they are not a part of the modular home design. It is important that you catalog what you need to design into the home so it can be established that these can be included into your plan.
There is no limit to the square footage to the design with modular homes; currently there are variations as big as 1500 to 3000 sq ft constructed in Thirty-two components, with the typical range between 4 to 6 thousand square feet in 10 to 12 modules. Each home design Express Modular makes available are created this way, including our modular log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.
Once the assembly of your sections is finished and they’re brought to your building location we start the important step of your installation – the setting of the sections by the assembly team employing construction crane equipment. Once they’re installed, the final step of the installation will be the finishing the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the floor coverings, as well as the create of the home appliances. Cleaning and tests ensures everything is in good working order and the final home inspections and occupancy permits will be completed. Generally, the external perimeter entrance, patios, paths along with patio decking are installed to finish the work and the house is set for moving in.
