Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, your brand-new Columbus dwelling will demand substantive and thoughtful investigation that needs to be completed at the start of the project process. Your new residence is going to conform to all of the building code requirements but you will still need to arrange for the perimeter line settings, and obtain all building permits. On top of that, you will need to determine soil type and conditions, water table along with frost line so as to develop your design.

Your preparation should include buying the property or home as well as choosing where to established the house on the property. Being the owner, you also need to establish a plan for building of a perimeter foundation wall structure, which has to be completely aligned to be able to support the modular home upon arrival. One crucial piece of your plan will be to have a thirty-foot diameter space placed in close proximity to the foundation and totally free of trees and wires which is completely level so that you can position the construction crane employed to set all the modules in position on the footing.

Planning A New Modular Home

The design of your new modular home starts by ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your building site. All of these need to be integrated during the design from the outset, and included in any engineering phase in the plan. When planning a modular home, you will need layouts for any attached garages, verandas or outside patios as they’re not a part of the modular home plan. is vital for you to catalog what you need to plan into the home so it can be determined that these will be included into your design.

There are no limits to the square footage of your design using modular homes; at present we see layouts as large as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in 32 modules, with your typical range between 4 to 6 thousand sq ft within ten to twelve components. Each house plan Express Modular offers are created this way, including our modular log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Installation of The New Construction

Once the construction of the modules is finished and they’re brought to your building site we start the crucial phase of the assembly – the setting of the modules by the installation team using construction crane equipment. As soon as they’re installed, the final phase of the set up is the finishing installing utilities, painting, installing all the floor coverings, as well as the set-up of your home appliances. Cleansing top to bottom and testing ensures all aspects are in proper condition and that the remaining inspections as well as occupancy permits can be secured. Commonly, the external perimeter entrance, patios, paths as well as decking are installed to complete the project and then the house is ready for occupancy.
