Solutions

Working as a construction manager our founder realized how time consuming it is to understand the blueprints, then measure and cut lumber for the final assembly. The preparation phase is inefficient and tedious. Moreover, in order to minimize mistakes, it’s necessary to double check everything, making this process even slower. This leads to stress and up to $20k wasted per house. When they do make mistakes they lose even more money and time.

We have specialized in one simple product, pre-­framed walls. They are pre­cut & pre­nailed studs with collapsible spacers fastened on the wood, using a fully automated machine. They are not prefab walls or a new construction method. Pre­framing simply speeds up the traditional on­site process. It will enable a big leap forward in efficiency and precision, allowing walls to be raised up to 10x faster, but several times less expensive than any existing prefab method.
