By shipping our houses as kits we utilize the benefits of online purchasing power and fulfillment while avoiding the challenges of offsite construction. You can assemble the home yourself...or hire a contractor. No home building experience is needed. Either way, we reduce labor costs due to a combination of carefully selected building materials combined with the precision of the lightweight steel framing system. We supply engineered, factory assembled wall and roof panels that are easy to erect so you can a have a habitable home in weeks, not months. Every step of the project that you can manage or build yourself reduces the cost of construction. Our curated master materials list ensures there is minimal uncertainty throughout the construction process.
Our CAD-designed, machine-manufactured steel frames provide a better return on your framing investment. Unlike on-site house framing, we put 80% of your framing investment in the quality of materials rather than the labor costs needed with timber or manual stick framing.
I have really been pleased that I switched to metal framing versus wood. There are a lot of benefits, the biggest one being weight on a tiny house. It was good to work with Marc and Jayson, using the engineer on finalizing structure. Especially, since I had designed something that they hadn't attempted yet. Everyone who has seen my framing is amazed and many people are thinking of switching to metal framing from wood. I have nothing but great things to say about Volstrukt!
I ended up traveling to Austin TX and meeting the Volstrukt team to work with them on my design. Marc McQuain and Jayson Laipenieks were really welcoming and thorough when describing the process of manufacturing steel framing. They were passionate about their product, and spent extensive time with me finalizing my design. Marc and Jayson feel connected to the tiny house movement and want to offer framing with structural integrity. These two are terrific and offer a product that's truly changing the tiny house movement for the better!
