Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, a new Bath abode will demand substantive and specific investigation which needs to be accomplished at the start of process. Your abode is going to comply with all building code requirements but you will need to prepare for the perimeter line settings, and have virtually all normal construction permits. On top of that, you need to find out soil type and conditions, water table and frost line to be able to create the design.

The planning needs to involve acquiring the ownership of the site and determining where you can set the house within the site. As the property owner, you also need to establish a plan for the construction of the perimeter foundation wall, that must be completely square to be able to support the modules upon arrival. One particular crucial piece of your program will be to plan a thirty-foot diameter area located in close proximity to the foundation and clear of trees and wires which is completely level so that you can place the building crane employed to set in place modules in position on the foundation.

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 beginning, as well as integrated into the engineering step of the design. You will want layouts for your attached garages, porches or decks as they are not part of the modular home plan. It is essential for you to list what you need to plan into the home so that it can be determined that these can be included in your plan.

There is no limit to the square footage of your design with modular homes; presently we see layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in Thirty-two components, with the common range from 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft in ten to twelve sections. Each and every design Express Modular sells are built this way, including our modular log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

After the assembly of your modules is finished and they’re delivered to your property location we begin the key stage of the assembly – the setting of your components by the assembly crew employing construction crane equipment. Once they’re placed, the last phase of your set up will be the finishing of the installation of utilities, painting, installation of all the floors, along with the set-up of your appliances. Cleansing and testing makes certain all things are in good condition and that the last inspections as well as occupancy permits will be completed. Usually, the external perimeter driveway, patios, paths along with decking are installed to complete the work and the residence is set for occupancy.
