Production of modular houses
NorgesHus Modular homes, also known as prefabricated homes, are built in factories and then transported to their final location for assembly. The production process involves several stages:
The first step in producing a NorgesHus modular home is the design process. This can involve selecting a pre-existing design from a catalog or creating a custom design with an architect. The design will include all aspects of the home, including the layout, size, number of rooms, and finishes.
Once the design is finalized, it’s converted into detailed blueprints and plans. These plans include the specifications for each component of the home and are used during the manufacturing process.
The manufacturing process involves building the house in sections, known as modules. Each module is built independently, with its own walls, floors, ceilings, and finishes. The modules are typically constructed on an assembly line, with different teams responsible for different parts of the construction.
The construction of each module begins with the frame. This includes the floor, walls, and ceiling. The frame is typically made from wood, although steel and other materials can also be used.
Installation of Systems:
Once the frame is complete, the various systems of the home are installed. This includes the electrical wiring, plumbing pipes, and HVAC ductwork.
After the systems are installed, the interior of the module is finished. This includes installing insulation and drywall.
The exterior of the module is finished with siding, roofing, and windows. The type of siding and roofing used can vary depending on the design of the home.
Once all the modules are complete, they are transported to the home site. This can be a complex process, as each module can be large and heavy.
At the home site, the modules are assembled on the foundation. This involves lifting each module into place with a crane and then securing them together. The seams between the modules are then sealed and finished to create a seamless appearance.
6. Final Finishing:
After the home is assembled, the final finishing touches are added. This can include installing appliances, painting, landscaping, and any other finishing touches specified in the design.
The production of a modular home can be a complex process, but it offers several advantages over traditional construction methods. These advantages include a faster construction time, less waste, and the ability to work in a controlled environment, which can result in higher quality construction.
