What Does Modular Home Addition Process Look Like?

If you have already invested in a modular home or wish to build one soon, it is advisable that you understand the processes involved before you take the plunge. One of the significant benefits of a modular home is that it gives you the flexibility to design the home interiors just as you need. It makes maximum utilisation of the space to provide you with a highly functional and aesthetically pleasing home.

Additionally, modular homes are highly versatile. You can alter the design to suit your needs even after the construction is complete. This means you can add a new room or extend the existing one any time you want in the future with minimal disturbance to the existing structure. This process of addition is called modular home addition. If you are looking to revamp your modular home, you must know how the process works.

But, before we delve into the home addition process, let us look at how modular homes are built.

Unlike the traditional brick and mortar homes built on location from the ground up, the modular homes are built off-site in a factory under a controlled environment. Inside a factory, the different elements or modules of the house are manufactured/constructed simultaneously under strict industrial guidelines. The units are then transported to the actual site, assembled and put together, before the final touches.

While the different units are constructed off-site, the contractors prepare the ground for final installation. And, since each module is constructed and assembled simultaneously, the building process takes much less time than the traditional building method. Also, since most of the construction work is done indoors, factors like weather, unavailability of labour, delay in arrival or shortage of raw material do not affect the project. Thus, the modular house construction technique saves a considerable amount of time and resources.

What is the modular home addition process? How does it work?

The modular addition process is similar to the modular home construction. Whether you want to add a new bedroom, build a new toilet, or extend your kitchen, you must explain your needs to them once you decide what addition you want. And, based on your needs, the contractor will conduct a thorough evaluation of the existing structure and take the necessary measurements.

After the assessment, just like how your home was built off-site, the additional unit will be built in a factory before eventually being fitted into the existing structure after necessary demolition and structural adjustments. Once the addition is put into place, the contractor will do the final touches to give your home a brand-new look.

The exact demolition process and the structural adjustments will depend on the type of addition you want. For example, if you are going to build an additional bathroom, it may not need too much work instead of adding an entire new floor on top of your existing structure.
