We're focused on being as easy to integrate as humanly possible. Part of how we do this is by providing our builder and GC customers a turn-key package that includes your entire rough carpentry scope of work. Our expert team will take your existing designs, translate them into a fabrication model that works with our technology, panelize your building components in our factory and assemble them onsite. What we turn over to you is a completely weather-tight structure, ready for your finishes. Navigate through the above graphic to learn more.
Every project starts with a detailed digital fabrication model that drives all aspects of our production process. This phase of the process starts by translating the design model into a 3-D digital twin. We use this model to generate everything from an automated bill of materials, to shop drawings, machine files and digital work instructions.
We model every part and piece of the framing scope of work. Every stud, every piece of hardware, every sheet of OSB is modeled in 3D. This creates a complete virtual representation of the building's structural system.
Our designers work to resolve plan set coordination issues well before framing ever starts on site. We also work with our customers and their trade partners to conduct additional clash detection and coordination as needed to enable a seamless construction process.
Once construction begins on site, you will be working directly with your general contractor for the duration of the construction process. Site work time varies by project but for single family homes, expect 3-6 weeks from breaking ground to frame start.
We spend time upfront with our builder partners to provide an understanding of our unique building system. For our homeowner and developer customers, who do not already have a builder, we work together to recommend the right builder or general contractor for their project.
We will stay in close contact with our builder partners throughout the process. We will provide them with foundation layout plans, coordination of anchor bolts, hold downs, and structural steel.
Your project is transmitted digitally to our factory floor for precise fabrication using our unique panelized building system. Factory assembly time can range from a few hours (for a small cottage or ADU) to a few weeks (for a large multi-family project). Our approach collapses your schedule while maintaining quality-it is simply a better way to frame.
Our CNC-controlled saws receive measurements as an output of our fabrication model. These measurements cut precisely and print assembly instructions directly onto the material.
Our team of highly-skilled carpenters constructs walls panels and floor cassettes guided by shop drawings and information printed directly onto the material. Integral weather-resistive barrier sheathing is applied to all exterior panels before transportation to site. Even windows can be pre-installed in our factory if desired.
After Simple Homes framing installation is complete, your contractor will have a dried-in building shell ready to receive exterior and interior finish work.
Most projects require framing finish or repair after Plumbing, Heating, and Electric contractors have completed their “rough in” work.
The building shell is weather-protected until the contractor is ready to receive exterior furring and finishes.
