Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Construction of your brand-new Culpeper home will require sizeable and specific preparation that should be carried out early in your project strategy. Your dwelling will definitely comply with all of the building code requirements but you’ll need to plan for the boundary line settings, and obtain virtually all construction permits. On top of that, you will have to determine soil type and conditions, water table and frost line in an effort to produce the new design.

The preparation must include obtaining the ownership of the site and determining where you should set the house on the site. As the owner, you also need to develop a plan for building of a perimeter foundation wall, which must be properly aligned to be able to support the modules when installed. One crucial piece of your plan is to have a thirty-foot diameter space positioned close to the perimeter foundation and devoid of trees and wires that is completely level so that you can place the construction crane used to set in place modules in position on the foundation.
