Designing A New Modular Home

The design of your new modular home will start by establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the construction site. All of these need to be integrated within the layout from the start, and integrated into the engineering phase of your plan. You will want layouts for your attached garages, porches or outdoor patios since they are not an element of the modular home plan. is very important for you to list what you want to plan for your residence so that it can be established that these will be included into your plan.

There are no limits to the square footage to the design using modular homes; currently we see layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . constructed in 32 modules, with your common range from 4,000 to 6,000 square feet in ten to twelve modules. Each and every design Express Modular offers are constructed in this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.

Once the construction of the modules is completed and they are delivered to your home site we begin the crucial step of the home’s assembly – the setting of the modules by the assembly crew employing construction crane equipment. As soon as they are positioned, the final stage of your set up will be the completion of the installation of utilities, painting, installing the floors, as well as the installation of the appliances. Cleansing top to bottom and tests makes certain all things are in proper condition and that the remaining inspections and occupancy permits can be secured. Normally, the outer perimeter drive way, porches, paths along with patio decking are set up to finish the work and the residence is set for moving in.
