Although we have employed methods such as concrete block for certain applications, we typically “stick-build” our homes. This means we use conventional framing techniques, while following or exceeding the International Residential Building Codes. We also use solid wood for our materials; we never use finger joint studs. In addition, we check every stick of lumber for mold and structural integrity before it is used in a home. We will not use molded, warped, or utility grade structural lumber in our homes.
To ensure every framing detail follows local and national codes (and they are always changing), we also employ a third party inspector to inspect our framing. Just like every other major phase of construction on our homes, third party inspections are important to our peace of mind, and yours.
