Building A Modular Home

With modular construction, your own Sumter abode requires sizeable and thoughtful planning that needs to be completed early in your project strategy. Your new dwelling will definitely comply with all of the local building code requirements but you’ll need to plan for the boundary line locations, and have virtually all normal construction permits. In addition, you must determine soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in order to develop the new design.

The preparation needs to feature obtaining the ownership of the site and determining the best place to established the house within the site. Being the property owner, you must also develop a plan for the construction of a perimeter foundation wall structure, that must be properly aligned in order to support the modules when installed. One particular vital item of the program will be to plan a thirty-foot diameter space placed close to the foundation that is devoid of trees and wires that is completely level in order to position the building crane used to set in place the components around the footing.

7 Easy Steps to Get Started

Designing A New Modular Home

Design for a new modular home will start with determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the building location. All of these must be incorporated in the design from the start, and incorporated into any engineering step of the plan. You’ll want layouts for your attached garages, verandas or decks as they are included in the modular home plan. It is important for you to catalog 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 square footage to the plan using modular homes; currently there are designs as large as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in 32 modules, with your common range between 4 to 6 thousand sq ft within ten to twelve modules. All of the home designs Express Modular makes available are constructed in this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Once the assembly of your sections is completed and they’re delivered to your home location we begin the key step of the home’s assembly – the placing of your modules by the assembly crew using construction crane gear. Once these are placed, the last phase of the installation will be the finishing installing utilities, painting, installing all the flooring, and the create of your appliances. Cleansing top to bottom and tests makes sure everything is in good condition and the final home inspections as well as occupancy permits will be completed. Typically, all the external perimeter driveway, patios, paths and decking are set up to finish the work and then the home is set for moving in.
