What’s Needed When Designing Your Own Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, your new Bowling Green dwelling will demand substantial and thoughtful planning which should be carried out in the beginning the project process. Your dwelling will certainly comply with all of the local building codes but you’ll still need to plan for the boundary line settings, and have virtually all construction permits. Furthermore, you will need to determine soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in order to create your design.

The preparation needs to incorporate purchasing property along with deciding where you can established the building on the site. Being the owner, you also need to develop a plan for building of a perimeter foundation wall, which needs to be properly square in order to support the modular home when installed. One critical piece of the program would be to plan a thirty-foot diameter space located close to the perimeter foundation that is free from trees and wires that’s completely level so that you can place the building crane employed to set the modules in position around the foundation.
