How to Get Started On Your Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, a new Corpus Christi abode requires substantive and specific preparation that needs to be finished early in your project strategy. Your new residence is going to comply with all of the building code requirements but you’ll still need to arrange for the border line settings, and have virtually all local building permits. Furthermore, you will have to identify soil type and conditions, water table along with frost line for you to produce your new design.

The preparation must involve obtaining the ownership of the site along with deciding where you can set the structure on the site. Being the owner, you will need to also develop a plan for the construction of a perimeter foundation wall, which has to be perfectly square in order to support the modules upon arrival. One essential item of the program is to plan a 30-foot diameter space placed near the foundation that is clear of trees and wires that is completely level in order to position the construction crane used to set modules in position around the footing.

Creating A New Modular Home

Design for your new modular home will start with ascertaining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the construction location. All of these need to be integrated during the structure from the start, and integrated into the engineering phase of the plan. When planning a modular home, you will need layouts for your attached car ports, porches or outdoor patios as they’re included in the modular home design. It is essential for you to catalog what you need to plan into the home so it can be determined that these can be included in your plan.

There is no limit to the size of of your plan with modular homes; at present there are variations as big as 1500 to 3000 sq ft built in Thirty-two modules, with your common range from four to six thousand sq ft within ten to twelve components. All of the home designs Express Modular makes available are built in this way, including our log homes and our many green home options.

Once the assembly of your modules is finished and they’re transported to your home location we start the key stage of your home’s installation – the placing of the modules by the assembly crew utilizing construction crane gear. As soon as they are positioned, the last phase of the set up is the completion of installing utilities, painting, installation of all the floor coverings, as well as the installation of the appliances. Cleansing and tests makes sure all aspects are in proper working order and that the remaining home inspections as well as occupancy permits can be completed. Usually, all the external perimeter entrance, porches, paths as well as patio decking are installed to complete the project and then the home is ready for occupancy.
