Building A Modular Home in Oakhurst

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of your brand-new Oakhurst dwelling will need substantive and thoughtful investigation that must be completed at the beginning of the project strategy. Your new dwelling will definitely comply with all building code requirements but you will need to plan for the border line locations, and obtain virtually all normal building permits. Furthermore, you will have to determine soil type and conditions, water table and frost line to be able to develop the new design.

Your preparation needs to incorporate purchasing ownership of the site and identifying where you should set your house on the site. As the owner, you also need to create a plan for the development of a perimeter foundation wall structure, which must be perfectly aligned so as to support the modular home when installed. One particular crucial item of the plan will be to plan a 30-foot diameter space located in close proximity to the perimeter foundation and clear of trees and wires which is completely level in order to place the construction crane utilized to set all the modules constantly in place on the footing.

When they’re placed, the last phase of your installment is the finishing the installation of utilities, painting, installation of all the floor coverings, as well as the installation of your appliances. Cleaning top to bottom and testing makes sure all aspects are in excellent working order and the final home inspections and occupancy permits will be completed.
