Factory Built

Having your home built in a factory environment has so many benefits. In a controlled environment, the craftsmen building your home are able to use dry materials (like kiln dried lumber) that are never stored in the elements picking up moisture that can lead to shrinkage and mould and complete the build on budget and on time without any delays.

The home goes through many different building stations as it progresses through the factory. Each station has a team of workers and a supervisor that are experts in their building area. The in-plant quality control meets and exceeds the most up to date building codes. Products are installed according to the manufacture's instructions; no short cuts are ever taken. This is why the manufacturers offer such great warranties on our homes.


As the home moves from one station to the next, the home's build instructions are sent along with it. This ensures that the supervisors of each station know what the custom elements of the design are and build the pieces according to those instructions.

Our homes are built by seasoned experts and are done right the first time. They are built from the inside out which is the opposite of a stick framed home. This process allows for the workers to assure everything is sealed correctly before the insulation is installed. The result allows for a tighter building envelop.
