Safe and Healthy Living With Modular Homes
Constructing off-site in a factory environment using modular construction techniques provides many inherent green advantages over historic, site-built construction. It does this by minimizing site disturbance, cutting down vehicle traffic, and reducing the building costs of modular homes. Building indoors means delays due to weather are essentially eliminated. Materials and supplies are ordered, received and safely stored in a dry warehouse so replacement because of weather damage or theft is eliminated. It also means that while your home is being built in the factory, that site development is happening concurrently and significantly reducing the the project timeframe. Modules are carefully sealed at the factory to protect your home while being delivered to your job site.
While construction of your home is happening in the factory, the site preparation is carried out simultaneously. On site building requires the foundation to be completed BEFORE any construction can begin on your new home. Modular homes suffer limited schedule delays due to the elements. Building isn’t interrupted because a lumber yard drops materials arbitrarily around the job site. Your new home is set on your foundation and secured on day one with little to no fear of harm from theft. Your custom home is provided with the finishes you specified at a level of quality that can’t be rivaled with onsite construction. You get to move into your new home more quickly and with confidence in its construction which delivers a healthy living environment.
Designing A New Modular Home
Design for a new modular home will start with determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of the building location. All of these must be incorporated in the design from the start, and built into any engineering step of the plan. You’ll want layouts for your attached garages, verandas or decks as they are not a part of the modular home plan. is significant for you to catalog what you need to plan for your residence so it can be established that these will be incorporated into the plan.
There are no limits to the square footage to the plan using modular homes; currently there are designs as large as 1500 to 3000 square feet constructed in 32 modules, with your common range between 4 to 6 thousand sq ft within ten to twelve modules. All of the home designs Express Modular offers are built in this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Today, modular building means reduced homebuyer headaches. Building indoors in a factory environment means exterior finishes are completed last, not first. This allows us to construct your custom home from the inside out, the opposite of traditional outdoor construction. What this means to you is that the building envelope of your custom home can be fabricated to be super energy efficient. This is a standard feature with modular homes and their building process. Increased insulation, high-tech sealants, and the use of advanced materials are just some of the reasons to decide-on the advantages of modular building for your custom home.
