A Customer’s Story
Here’s the first message from Cody:
“Here are some photos of the 20x30 one story we built from your plans. We went with 8' sidewalls and an 10/12 roof pitch on a slab. I think we will do a little loft over the bedroom and bathroom. Up to this point building has been very easy partly because I built the outer walls in my sisters barn and then used a U-haul to take them to the site."
"I built them with 5/8" plywood using 2x6 studs. Each panel was 4x8. I had to build this way because my husband was away in school and I have two girls - one 2 and the other was 2 months at the time, now she is 5 months old. It only took one day to bring the panels in and set them up. Everything was perfectly square and plumb. If I had been a little braver I would have installed the windows and doors beforehand and maybe even put the Tyvek on."
Here’s the second message from Cody:
“My husband is home now and was able to help with everything but the outer walls. He is unable to do a whole lot because he is military and works about 80 hours a week. We did have someone do the slab and the metal roof. We only paid $3,800 for the slab and 40" deep footings so I couldn't pass it up. The metal roof, installed was $1,185 - not much more than shingles."
"I will be happy to explain to anyone how to panelize their house. It is sooooooo simple, especially if you plan the doors and windows to fit inside a 4x8 sheet."
