Panels are fabricated in our Englewood facility, pre-cut and  laid out on the factory floor. Each piece is ensured to fit, once it  arrives on your job site.

Once the foundation is ready, your kit is delivered to the site,  ready for assembly. Whether the house is built on a concrete slab or on  an NPH Floor System, the walls and roof get stood up in a matter of a  few days.
