Planning Your Modular Home

Design for a new modular home will begin by determining the Wind Zone, Thermal Zone and Roof Load Zone of your development location. All of these must be incorporated during the structure from the beginning, and included in any engineering phase of the plan. You’ll want designs for any attached car ports, verandas or outside patios since they are not a part of the modular home design. It is important that you list what you need to plan into the home so it can be determined that these can be included in the plan.

There are no limits to the square footage of your plan using modular homes; currently we see designs as big as 1500 to 3000 sq . ft . built in Thirty two segments, with the typical range between four to six thousand square feet within ten to twelve components. All of the home designs Express Modular makes available are built this way, including our modular log homes and our many green home options.

Installation of The New Modular Construction

After the construction of your sections is done and they are delivered to your home location we begin the important step of your home’s installation – the placing of the components by the installation team employing construction crane equipment. As soon as they’re positioned, the final step of your installation would be the completion of the installation of utilities, painting, installation of all the floors, and the set-up of the appliances. Cleaning and testing ensures all aspects are in excellent condition and the final inspections as well as occupancy permits will be secured. Usually, the outer perimeter drive way, porches, paths as well as decking are set up to finish the project and the home is ready for moving in.
