How to Start Your Own Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of your own Bryan home requires essential and specific planning which should be accomplished early in your project process. Your dwelling will comply with all building codes but you’ll need to plan for the border line locations, and obtain virtually all building permits. In addition, you will need to identify soil type and conditions, water table and frost line so as to produce your design.

The preparation should include acquiring the ownership of the site as well as deciding the best place to set your house within the property. Being the property owner, you will need to also create a plan for construction of a perimeter foundation wall, which must be correctly aligned so as to support the modular home upon arrival. One essential piece of the program will be to have a thirty-foot diameter area placed near the perimeter foundation that is free from trees and wires that is perfectly level so that you can place the building crane utilized to set all of the components around the foundation.

Planning Your Modular Home

Design for a new modular home will begin by determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the construction site. All of these must be integrated in the layout from the start, and incorporated into the engineering step in the plan. You will want designs for any attached garages, verandas or outdoor patios as they are not part of the modular home design. is vital for you to catalog what you need to plan into the home so that it can be established that these can be incorporated in the plan.

There is no limit to the size of to the design with modular homes; at present we see designs as large as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in Thirty-two components, with the common range between four to six thousand sq ft in 10 to 12 modules. All of the home designs Express Modular provides are built in this way, including our modular log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Once the assembly of the sections is complete and they’re transported to your property location we start the crucial phase of the assembly – the setting of your sections by the installation team employing construction crane gear. When they are positioned, the final phase of the installment will be the completion of the installation of utilities, painting, installation of the floor coverings, and the create of the home appliances. Cleaning and tests ensures everything is in excellent working order and the remaining inspections and occupancy permits will be secured. Normally, the external perimeter entrance, porches, walks as well as patio decking are set up to finish the work and the home is set for occupancy.
