Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, your own Easley residence requires considerable and thoughtful investigation that must be finished at the outset of strategy. Your new residence will definitely comply with all local building code requirements but you will still need to prepare for the boundary line settings, and obtain virtually all usual construction permits. On top of that, you must establish soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line in an effort to produce the design.

The planning should involve purchasing real estate along with pinpointing where you can set your house on the site. As the property owner, you must also create a plan for the development of a perimeter foundation wall structure, which must be properly aligned to be able to support the modules upon arrival. One essential piece of the program will be to plan a thirty-foot diameter space positioned near the perimeter foundation and clear of trees and wires that is perfectly level to be able to place the building crane used to set in place the actual modules on the footing.

Creating A New Modular Home

The design of a new modular home will begin by determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the building site. These need to be integrated during the design from the start, as well as built into the engineering step of your plan. When planning a modular home, you will want designs for your attached garages, porches or outside patios as they’re included in the modular home design. is significant that you list what you need to plan into the home so that it can be determined that these can be included in your plan.

There are no limits to the square footage to the design with modular homes; currently there are layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in 32 components, with the common range from 4 to 6 thousand sq ft within 10 to 12 components. All of the home designs Express Modular offers are designed in this way, including our modular log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

When the assembly of your modules is complete and they’re delivered to your home site we begin the important stage of your home’s assembly – the setting of your modules by the installation crew utilizing construction crane gear. When they’re positioned, the last phase of the set up would be the completing installing utilities, painting, installation of the floor coverings, as well as the set-up of your home appliances.
