For a couple days now, we have been talking about the various tradesmen that will be working to complete your new Modular Home. So far, we have mentioned carpenters, plumbers, and electricians. These various trades will all be working at your new home to do the finish work that typically takes a couple weeks and up to a month depending on the size and complexity of your home.
While the plumber is connecting a seemingly crazy set of pipes the Electrician is also connecting a series of wires into a Whole House Electrical System.
There are several basic pieces of information that you will need to know about your new modular home’s electrical system.
Once your new modular home is gently placed on its permanent foundation by the set crew with the help of a heavy hydraulic crane; then the on-site work begins. We have already talked about what the carpenter does so today let’s look and see what the Plumber will be doing; typically, your plumber will have three major tasks:

As our story line continues we move away from the delivery and setting of the modules on their permanent foundation. The next step in the process of completing your modular home is the all in the details.
Today’s photograph shows Pat and Gordon standing in their front door in Lanesboro Massachusetts. (by the way, without the computer’s Spell Check I will never know how to correctly spell Massachusetts) Today’s picture was taken immediately after they house was set on the foundation back in May.
The last step we mentioned in the process of building a modular home is the delivery. You will recall we showed you several trucks and their escort cars that actually deliver the modules to your property from the plant.
At the end of the delivery the trucks will leave and return to the plant for another delivery the next day. Delivering homes is a never-ending process but, we do know that “your new home” is here and is ready to be gently placed on its permanent foundation.
This week we had a nice sized two-story home delivered over in the Adirondacks of New York State and that is where we have been all week. It went this way:
As of yesterday afternoon, the following things have been accomplished:
Yesterday we talked about digging the cellar hole and on those occasions where it is necessary to blast away ledge rock. Today we move on to building a foundation.
