How to Get Started On Today’s Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of a new Florence dwelling will demand sizeable and specific investigation that must be done in the beginning the project strategy. Your new residence is going to comply with all building code requirements but you’ll still need to arrange for the perimeter line locations, and have virtually all usual construction permits. Moreover, you need to ascertain soil type and conditions, water table along with frost line in an effort to develop your new design.

Your planning must involve buying the property or home as well as determining the best place to established your house within the property. Being the property owner, you will need to also create a plan for the construction of a perimeter foundation wall structure, which has to be correctly aligned in order to support the modules upon arrival. One particular vital item of the plan would be to plan a thirty-foot diameter area situated close to the foundation that is devoid of trees and wires that is completely level to be able to position the building crane used to set all of the components constantly in place around the foundation.

Creating Your Modular Home

The design of a new modular home will begin with determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the building site. These need to be integrated during the structure from the outset, and integrated into the engineering step of your plan. You’ll need layouts for any attached garages, verandas or outside patios as they are not part of the modular home plan. is vital for you to list what you need to plan for your residence so it can be established that these will be incorporated into the plan.

There are no limits to the size of to the design using modular homes; at present we see variations as large as 1500 to 3000 square feet built in Thirty-two modules, with the typical range between four to six thousand sq ft in ten to twelve sections. All of the home designs Express Modular provides are created this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

When the assembly of the modules is finished and they are transported to your building site we start the key step of the installation – the placing of the components by the assembly crew using construction crane equipment. As soon as they’re positioned, the final stage of the installation will be the completing the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the floors, and the set-up of the home appliances. Cleaning and testing makes sure everything is in proper condition and the final home inspections and occupancy permits can be secured. Typically, all the outer perimeter driveway, patios, walks and decking are set up to complete the project and then the home is set for occupancy.
