State Review of Modular Home Plans
Your modular home’s blueprints have to be reviewed and approved by your state before the factory can begin building it.
While not being built on-site, modular homes are nonetheless built to the exact same building code, with the only difference being that they are built at a factory in sections. The inspections that take place will happen during each stage of the construction process. These are no different than site-built homes. However, with a modular home, all the inspections for the modular sections themselves happen in the factory.
Power, Water, And Sewer Inspections
Your local building jurisdiction will require a building permit that allows a modular home to be dropped off on-site. This means you will have to go through the same type of inspections that are done for a traditional house. Examples would be the approval for the utility service pole, a temporary service panel, and the hookups to a private water distribution source.
To get modular homes inspected prior to moving in, your foundation will have to pass an inspection while it’s being constructed, just like a site-built home. In rare cases, this involves getting soil engineering tests and submitting them to the building jurisdiction. After work begins the building jurisdiction will inspect the foundation to make sure it is up to code.
Now that your modular home has finally been built and has been moved onto the location, all hookups are completed and inspected. you have to pass a final inspection. This is to ensure your modular home meets codes for egress (exterior steps), smoke detectors, and the like. After all, is said and done you will be issued a certificate of occupancy and you can finally get to enjoy your brand new modular home!
