When it comes to making or buying a modular home, there are quite a few tips in designing your modular home that you need to be aware of. First of all, if you are not sure what modular homes are, they are basically an offshoot of the semi-folding, bifold doors used in conventional construction. Now instead of having two doors to open up to and from, you have one door to do it. This is what sets these homes apart from traditional construction because they are usually a lot cheaper than other types of construction.
One of the tips in designing your modular home is to make sure that the floor joists that you use have plenty of bracing. Bracing actually provides for stronger support for your floor joists. If they are not properly braced then they can easily bow and weaken the structure of your modular home, causing it to become structurally unsound. As such, bracing should be a very important part of your design. In addition to that, it will also help keep water out of your home by preventing the floor from becoming soaked.
