Have you ever think about what it takes to build a manufactured home? A prefabricated house construction process is based upon industrialized methods which reduce manufacturing time, optimize materials, and ensure better quality control at every stage.
These are the reasons manufactured houses are becoming more popular among real estate agents and builders.
First, remember that prefabricated homes can be made from a variety of materials. The most popular being concrete, steel, aluminum, or PVC.
Finishes and functional pieces can be added to this base structure. They can be made in any material the client desires.
Prefabricated concrete homes are very popular right now. They have excellent durability and can be adapted to any weather. They also have the advantage of being fully equipped and ready to live in most cases.
Design: The first step in Building a Manufactured House
As with a traditional house, manufacturing homes begins at the design board. Every construction company has a variety of designs, from smaller homes to larger modular homes.
For homes that are built to fit the buyer’s needs, the architect will consider the land size, topology, sun exposure, and other factors to ensure it is a perfect match for the environment in which it will be built. The advantage of manufactured homes is that their basic design can easily be modified to meet the buyer’s requirements.
This is especially true for modular homes, which can be expanded and reshaped by adding additional sections. You can also change the arrangement.
It is important to ask about the features and options of a prefabricated home before you start any negotiations.
All of this happens with minimal disruption to the production line. Each module is constructed using the same materials, assembly, and quality control processes that were used to build the main module.
Concrete and molds for Manufactured Homes Construction
Prefabricated modular houses are constructed in modules or sections that can then be brought to the final location to assemble the house.
Each module is made in the factory of the manufacturer from concrete, wood, or metal panels. You can pre-assemble whole modules or a portion of them depending on the size of your house. The modules are then assembled at the job site and put together.
Casting concrete in molds is one the most common methods to build the panels of houses constructed with this material. This involves pouring concrete into molds that have been specifically shaped for each section or wall of the ceiling.
The use of molds allows for faster construction of large numbers of houses that will be identical in size and shape.
The spraying concrete on precast insulating panels is another technique that can be used to assemble houses at the final location. This technique is like the one used for the construction of infrastructure and swimming pools.
Precast plates are often joined using metal profiles that have been embedded into the foundation plates. Prefabricated concrete homes are built in a similar way to a puzzle.
Electrical and Sanitary Part
Ever wonder how the electrical wiring and sockets of a manufactured house are connected? It is very simple. The ducts that will carry the cables into the melds are placed first. Once the concrete has cured, the ducts are integrated into the walls.
The water pipes are the same. These pipes are easily integrated into walls. They can be used to place toilets, sinks, and showers quickly and easily as well as join the different white and grey sewage pipes. It is notable that prefabricated houses already consider the route and location of different pipes for electricity and water.
Roof and Windows Construction in Manufactured Houses
For ceilings, prefabricated concrete houses often use metal or wooden support beams. The Truss, which consists of long beams that run throughout the house and shorter beams that run perpendicular to them, is a very popular method for assembling support for roofs.
It is worth noting that door and window frames can either be made in steel/aluminum or wood depending on the design of your house. Windows and doors can be made from metal, wood, or PVC.
The ceiling can be installed once the beam structure supporting the roof has been completed. You can use drywall, wood, and other materials to do this. The waterproofing layer is then placed onto the roof with the tiles or coating requested by the client in the design. The final stage involves the application of stucco and covering floors with wood or ceramic.
Prefabricated wooden homes
Prefabricated houses are experiencing a revival. This is partly due to the versatility and nobility of this material. It is also a natural and renewable product, which is unlike traditional steel and mineral products. The most significant difference in prefabricated wooden houses is the use of wood as the main component in walls, mezzanines, and ceilings.
It also points out that the predominant vacuum pressing methods of high-strength wood sheets is used to create the panels for the ceilings and walls. This allows prefabricated wooden homes to be constructed with greater mechanical resistance to natural elements, than houses made with glued or nailed wood planks. It was interesting to see how you could build a prefabricated house. We will soon see even more prefabricated homes made with the most advanced materials and techniques. This will drastically reduce construction time.
