One of the most outstanding features of our building system is the savings in labor time and costs in the building process.

One-day Shell Assembly also offers a significant contribution to the finished look and quality of your home:

By making your natural wood home weather-tight on one clear day, you minimize or avoid the problems of water (rain) and weather damage (sun-bleaching) to your beautiful woods, which is a normal result when stick-framing a home on site.

The Efficient Shell Assembly process allows you to apply your Roofing Underlayment on the same day you put up your wall and open-beam ceiling roof panels....   

 

So this protects your home's quality of furniture-grade craftsmanship -- for your long-term living enjoyment. 

Your new Multi-Facetted Hawaii home is one of lasting beauty and workmanship.

Prefab Modular Panels, Quick One-Day Assembly of Cedar Home Shells - Hawaii

and slide them up into place!

Rest the ends of each one

on a temporary support stud,

just a tad higher in the center

than they will end up. 

 

When they are all in place, 

you will back the supports out gradually,

and the roof panels come together

at specially pre-engineered angles,

very strong to support one another,

designed like a self-supporting arch.

Step 4.  Almost done ...    

As the afternoon is continuing,

apply your roofing underlayment.

As the afternoon comes to its end,

you can go home and rest easy

for the rest of your project. 

 

Your new Hale is weather tight!
