How To Begin Creating Your Modular Home

with Express Modular

Modular Building of your own Madison abode requires substantial and specific preparation that must be accomplished early in strategy. Your dwelling will certainly comply with all of the local building codes but you’ll still need to prepare for the boundary line locations, and have all local construction permits. Additionally, you need to identify soil type and conditions, water table as well as frost line in order to create your new design.

The preparation must include acquiring the real estate and identifying the best place to established the house on the site. As the owner, you also need to create a plan for construction of a perimeter foundation wall structure, that has to be properly aligned to be able to support the modular home upon arrival. One crucial item of the plan is to plan a 30-foot diameter area situated close to the foundation and clear of trees and wires that’s completely level to be able to place the construction crane used to set the modules constantly in place around the footing.
