Home Style: Panelized Homes

Why Choose This Option?

Distinctly different from our timber frame home and hybrid timber frame homes, our panelized home is a departure from timber frame methods completely. Our panelized homes instead use high-quality panelized wall systems, completely prefabricated in our facility and installed on site. A great alternative to timber frame or conventional construction, our panelized systems save construction time and on-site waste and are more budget friendly when compared with timber frame.

*Please note, our panelized homes can only be shipped to the following states: NH, VT, ME, MA, CT, NY, NJ, and PA.

AVERAGE COST ($)

Average per square foot costs range from $40 – $60+ per SF, depending on the final design and footprint. Our most budget-friendly option, panelized is a great choice for those looking for a high-quality conventional home that can be built faster.

CONSTRUCTION STYLE

Similar to traditional on-site construction framing, panelized homes use conventional construction methods, but the walls are pre-built in our manufacturing facility, saving time, material waste, and on-site labor costs.

DESIGN FLEXIBILITY (MED)

Due to necessary load bearing walls in a conventional style panelized home, there are more layout limitations when compared to timber frame homes.

What are the Benefits of a Panelized Home?

At Davis Frame, we developed our high-quality and precise systems-built panelized wall system to offer homeowners and builders a high quality and faster way to build a new custom home. It is a great alternative compared to conventional building methods.

PRECISION MANUFACTURING

We design each custom panelized home in our 3D CAD program, allowing us to plan out all aspects of the structure before arriving on site. By using our computerized drafting and manufacturing equipment, we can guarantee quality and accurate assemblies the first time.

FASTER ON-SITE CONSTRUCTION

Our prebuilt panelized wall panels and precut roof will drastically cut down the framing time on site. One of our panelized packages can be assembled in as little as 2 weeks.

MINIMIZED ON-SITE WASTE

With our panelized wall system, there is minimal to no cutting involved, which also cuts down on jobsite waste.

Difference Between Panelized & Conventional Framing

As you research new home construction, you will come across systems-built construction methods as well as conventional on-site framing. Let us explain the difference.

SYSTEMS-BUILT OR “PANELIZED”

  • Factory controlled for optimal quality and precision
  • Straight plumb walls for easier finish work   
  • Accuracy down to 1/16”           
  • Accurate structural package cost   
  • No overages or mis-cuts
  • Reduced waste on-site 
  • Less carpenters needed for installation
  • 2-4 weeks to frame depending on size  
  • Less weather delays due to faster on-site installation  

CONVENTIONAL FRAMING OR “STICK-BUILT”

  • Exposed to weather elements, potentially diminishing quality
  • More prone to weather delays
  • Not always square
  • Hard to achieve 1/16” accuracy
  • Varying costs and potential back charges
  • Overage and mis-cuts
  • Site waste
  • Labor shortages making it a challenge to find builders
  • 2 months to frame depending on size
