Do you assume that a traditional wood framed house is what’s best for you? Granted, stick built houses with traditional wood framing assembled completely on site are by far the most popular type of homes built in the United States. More than 82% of new homes built in the US are stick built. But there are other types of construction that can result in a quality built home. And some of those alternatives can give you a stronger, more energy efficient house that’s quicker to build than a traditional stick built house.
In this week’s mini lesson, I’ll talk about stick framing, plus go over some the most popular alternatives. They include panelized homes, steel framed houses, modular homes, and concrete houses. I’ll give a brief overview of each type of construction. You’ll probably be surprised by some of the advantages of the alternative building methods.
