Building A Modular Home
with Express Modular
With modular construction, your new Austin dwelling will need considerable and thoughtful investigation that must be completed at the start of process. Your abode is going to conform to all of the building codes but you will still need to plan for the boundary line settings, and have virtually all building permits. Furthermore, you must identify soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in order to develop the new design.
The preparation must feature buying the ownership of the site as well as identifying where you can set the house within the property. Being the property owner, you will need to also create a plan for the development of the perimeter foundation wall structure, that has to be correctly aligned to be able to support the modules when installed. One critical item of the program will be to plan a 30-foot diameter area situated near the foundation that is free from trees and wires that’s completely level to be able to position the building crane employed to set the components constantly in place around the footing.

Planning Your Modular Home
The design of your new modular home will start by establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your development location. These need to be utilized in the structure from the beginning, as well as incorporated into any engineering phase of the plan. You will want designs for any attached car ports, verandas or decks as they’re not an element of the modular home design. is significant that you list what you need to design into the home so that it can be determined that these will be included in the plan.
There are no limits to the square footage to the design using modular homes; currently we see designs as big as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . built in Thirty-two segments, with your common range between 4,000 to 6,000 sq ft in 10 to 12 modules. Each home design Express Modular sells are built in this way, including our modular log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.
When the construction of your sections is complete and they are brought to your building location we start the key step of your installation – the setting of your components by the installation team employing construction crane gear. When these are installed, the last phase of the installment will be the completing the installation of utilities, painting, installing the floors, and the installation of the equipment.
