Please contact us for specific materials lists and any other
added assistance we can provide to you in estimating each individual job.
All of our home shell packages also come with a helpful and detailed
Assembly Manual, which guides you through the preparation,
foundation specs and assembly process.
Panelized Home Shells
Natural All-Heart Redwood (framing)
Port Orford White Cedar (siding/sheathing)
By making your new home weather-tight on one clear day,
you minimize or avoid the problems of water (rain), sun,
and weather damage to your beautiful woods.
Besides the fact that our shell walls are pre-panelized,
one big difference that Builders will note is our
Self-supporting Roof System,
no “compression ring” needed,
as there is no outward-bearing force on the walls.
This is accomplished via triple compound angle cuts
in the framing members of the roof panels,
engineered to support one another,
and requiring no additional vertical (stud) support.
All the wall and roof panels are precision-engineered to within 1/32” for quick and efficient assembly on the foundation.
Due to structural factors
and the types of high-quality materials and hardware used,
these buildings are highly
resistant to the forces of Nature… earthquakes, hurricanes,
exposure to elements.
