Building A Modular Home

with Express Modular

With modular construction, a new Pineville abode requires significant and specific preparation that needs to be accomplished early in the project process. Your abode will certainly comply with all local building codes but you will still need to arrange for the perimeter line locations, and obtain virtually all construction permits. Additionally, you will have to establish soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line in order to develop the new design.

Your planning should feature obtaining the property as well as choosing where you can established the house within the site. Being the property owner, you must also create a plan for the building of the perimeter foundation wall structure, that must be completely square to be able to support the modular home when installed. One particular critical piece of your plan will be to plan a thirty-foot diameter area positioned near the foundation that is free from trees and wires that is completely level in order to place the building crane employed to set in place the actual components in position on the foundation.

Creating Your Modular Home

Design for your new modular home will start with establishing the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your development site. These have to be incorporated during the structure from the beginning, as well as employed in the engineering phase in the design. When planning a modular home, you’ll want designs for your attached garage areas, verandas or outside patios as they’re not a part of the modular home plan. is vital for you to list what you want to design into the home so that it can be determined that these will be included in the design.

There is no limit to the square footage to the plan with modular homes; currently we see layouts as big as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . constructed in 32 modules, with your common range between 4,000 to 6,000 square feet in 10 to 12 sections. Each house plan Express Modular sells are designed in this way, including our log homes and our many enviro-friendly home options.

Once the construction of your modules is finished and they are delivered to your building location we begin the important step of the home’s installation – the placing of your sections by the assembly team utilizing construction crane equipment. Once they are placed, the last step of the installation would be the finishing of installing utilities, painting, installing all the floor coverings, along with the installation of the equipment. Cleansing top to bottom and tests ensures all aspects are in good working order and the remaining home inspections as well as occupancy permits will be secured. Typically, the external perimeter entrance, patios, paths as well as patio decking are installed to finish the project and the house is set for moving in.
