Have you always wanted a home, but have held off due to the cost? Many people have the same concerns. Most adults have the goal of owning their own home, but cannot find the time or the money to buy the home that fits their needs. A modular home can be your dream home, without the difficulty of constructing it yourself. A great advantage is that modular homes can be built in far less time than other homes. This article will answer some basic questions about the ever-expanding world of modular homes.

How are they constructed?

Modular homes are factory-made, not constructed on-site. After constructing each section of the home individually, it then receives a comprehensive inspection to make sure that the home is up to building codes. You can be reassured that high quality and durable materials are consistently used. Modular homes are, however, very similar to traditionally constructed homes.

About how much do they cost?

The floor plan you choose will dictate the ultimate cost of your modular home. You can choose a plan that is custom-made to fill your unique desires. Of course, the larger the home, the larger the price tag. In addition to the speed at which modular homes can be built, they are typically less expensive per square foot than homes which are built in the traditional way. A modular home can be constructed in just two months.

Does the cost of the home include the cost of the foundation?

The price of the foundations is not covered by most manufacturers of modular homes. The cost can be included in your loan or it can be paid for from your own funds. In order to reduce upfront costs, the majority of people choose to get financing for the total price. It is important to know all the details of the coverage, including what is and isn’t covered, so make sure you contact the manufacturer.

Can modular homes be built to specification and are they energy efficient?

One wonderful feature of modular homes is that they are all constructed to meet HUD guidelines. Each part of the home is inspected for quality and is required to pass the standards of building specification inspectors. Modular homes are more efficient, in many ways, than are traditional homes.

Wood Framing Utah

Wood Frame Layout For Multi-Wall Polycarbonate: Prepare a drawing of the greenhouse you are planning. Framing of the longer walls of a greenhouse (called sidewalls on freestanding and front walls on attached greenhouses) are typically set with an on-center measurement of 24 1/8″, for intermediate studs and rafters. The first and last framing member measurement should be 23 1/4″ on-center. This will align the outside edges of the first and last sheets with the outside edges of the first and last rafters (See drawings below and details on next few pages). If these measurements are used, framing will easily accommodate standard size polycarbonate sheets, without cutting sheets to width. Always plan for 1/2″-1″ of sheet edge bearing on framing.

The shorter walls of a greenhouse are typically the end walls. Custom cutting is required for roof slope, doors, windows and ventilation equipment. Adhering to frame on center measurements, as described above, may eliminate cutting of sheet width. When laying out end wall framing, try to get the most you can out of a sheet. Cut offs can be used to go over doors or utilized on other projects such as cold frames.

At ends of roof and wall, you may want to double up the framing. This provides extra wall corner strength and double rafters act as top plates for end wall framing. Framing around a door or window can also be double. Follow standard framing techniques for the best results.

Highly recommended: Seal high moisture areas of frame with satin or flat marine grade spar or exterior varnish. Finish protects moisture prone areas (top & bottom plate and where poly carb. in contact with wood). This decreases likelihood of wood rot and eliminates wood discoloration. Expanding & contracting poly carb. moves on surface. After fully dry gently sand surface facing poly carb., decreasing movement noise. Semi & gloss paint are high friction finishes, noise may result. If painting frame use flat paint on surfaces facing polycarbonate. Stains may react with poly carb. If staining frame use spar or exterior varnish is final finish layer. Let dry & gently sand surface facing poly. Visit the Woodworking Plans Website pages for more woodworking articles.
