Building A Modular Home in Knoxville

with Express Modular

Modular Building of a new Knoxville dwelling will demand significant and thoughtful planning that must be done in the beginning your project strategy. Your new dwelling will definitely conform to all of the building code requirements but you’ll still need to plan for the perimeter line settings, and have all construction permits. Moreover, you must determine soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line to be able to produce your design.

Your preparation must incorporate purchasing property or home and determining where to set the structure on the property. As the owner, you also need to create a plan for construction of a perimeter foundation wall, which must be properly square in order to support the modules when installed. One particular crucial item of the plan will be to plan a 30-foot diameter area situated near the foundation and totally free of trees and wires that is perfectly level in order to place the building crane utilized to set the actual components in position around the foundation.

Designing A New Modular Home

The design of a new modular home starts with determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the development site. These have to be utilized within the design from the outset, as well as employed in the engineering step of the plan. You will want layouts for any attached garage areas, verandas or outdoor patios as they’re not a part of the modular home design. It is important for you to list what you need to design into the home so it can be determined that these will be incorporated in the design.

There are no limits to the square footage of your design with modular homes; currently we see variations as big as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in 32 segments, with your common range between 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft within ten to twelve components. Each and every floor plan Express Modular provides are constructed in this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Once the construction of your sections is completed and they are transported to your property location we begin the key phase of your assembly – the setting of the components by the assembly crew employing construction crane equipment. Once these are installed, the last step of your installation would be the finishing installing utilities, painting, installing the floor coverings, as well as the set-up of the appliances. Cleaning top to bottom and testing makes certain everything is in excellent condition and that the remaining inspections as well as occupancy permits can be secured. Generally, all the external perimeter drive way, porches, walks and decking are set up to complete the project and then the house is ready for occupancy.
