Setting Home & Making Weather Tight

setting modular home and making water tight

Understanding the Building Process

Be sure to read the previous page about Excavation and Foundation

Things can roll along very quickly at this point for the modular home delivery, the set and making it weather tight.  Generally with a well coordinated job site, the modular home delivery, the setting of the home and the weatherization of the home is around 80 to 90% complete within just a few days.  Legendary Homes strives to set the home within 2 days of delivery and then making it weather tight the day it is set or the day after set, depending on the size and style of the home.

Site Delivery of Your Modular Home

Typically a modular home will arrive in 2 or more sections.  The modular boxes can be in sections of 14′ to 16′ wide and can come in lengths of up to around 76′ long.  The building site needs to be managed in a way to allow the crane to set near the foundation and to be able to access the modular boxes and assemble them onto the foundation. The home may be “roll set” if the site allows.

In cases where there is limited room on the job site, a staging area may be needed to store the units offsite until the set day.  If this is the case then a toter truck may be required to move the home to the modular home site.  This is a standard process and is common with city and lake lots.

Assembling Your Modular Home on the Foundation

On the day of set the “set crew” will show up and start preparing the home for set.  The crane (if needed) will come at the appropriate time to begin setting the home on the foundation.  It is very important to have the site prepared ahead of time so to not have the crane waiting.  This is important to reducing the overall time for the crane.  The crane will charge from portal to portal, meaning from when they leave their business until the time they get back.  This is why it is so important to be prepared for the day of set.  We also will roll set the home if the site allows.  This can reduce the risk of increased costs.

Todd was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. We had some questions he didn't have answers for, but he quickly researched and gave us an answer the next business day. I especially enjoy how candid he is with the cost of everything, it gives me confidence that he's not trying to minimize the costs or hide charges for later. Once we find our land, I will be coming back to see Todd.

My husband and I are looking to build a new home, and legendary homes was a local business that we decided to check out. Todd has been fantastic and has answered our many many questions. He made us feel much more confident with modular homes, and had a ton of information for us!
