What’s Needed When Planning Your Modular Home

Modular Building of your new Lancaster home will require essential and specific preparation that should be finished at the start of the project process. Your home will conform to all building codes but you will still need to arrange for the border line settings, and obtain all building permits. Additionally, you will need to establish soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line to be able to create your design.

Your planning must include acquiring the property along with identifying where to set the building on the property. As the owner, you also need to create a plan for development of the perimeter foundation wall, which has to be perfectly square so as to support the modular home upon arrival. One critical piece of your plan is to have a 30-foot diameter area located near the perimeter foundation and clear of trees and wires that’s perfectly level to be able to place the construction crane utilized to set the actual modules in position on the foundation.

Creating Your Modular Home

The design of your new modular home will begin by establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your construction site. These have to be integrated within the layout from the beginning, as well as integrated into the engineering phase in the design. When planning a modular home, you will need designs for any attached garage areas, porches or outside patios since they are not part 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; presently we see layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in Thirty-two components, with the typical range from 4,000 to 6,000 square feet in 10 to 12 components.

Installation of Your New Modular Structure

When the construction of the modules is complete and they are brought to your property site we start the crucial phase of your installation – the setting of the components by the installation team utilizing construction crane equipment. As soon as they are positioned, the final stage of your set up would be the completion of the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the floors, as well as the installation of the home appliances. Cleaning and testing ensures all things are in excellent working order and that the last inspections and occupancy permits can be secured. Usually, the outer perimeter drive way, porches, walks along with patio decking are installed to complete the project and the house is ready for occupancy.
