Panelized Homes & Panelized Home Kits
Customizable Panelized Home Kits from Logangate
A Post & Beam Hybrid
Our modern panelized home kits combine the beauty of post & beam with the efficiency of panelized construction. Providing materials in a “ready to install” state is a growing trend in the building materials supply industry. Panelizing, componentizing, and prefabrication can be applied to almost every project.
What are Panelized Home Kits?
Panelized home kits are a process that we use to create the home. Put simply, it means that we build your home panel by panel in our controlled factory setting. This allows for the highest quality panelized construction and therefore a precision fit on the job site. Our prefabricated panelized home kit typically designs our walls to break in 4’ increments. The reason we do this is that when the two walls come together the 2x on each wall forms a 4x which becomes our modified post. That is the post and bearing point for the Douglas fir rafter. Panelized house kits allow us to pre-build smaller walls in our factory which enable us to load them in a truck to be delivered anywhere. Overall, this means that your home will be built faster and with more precision than traditional stick-built homes.
Douglas Fir rafters are pre-cut, sanded, & numbered and are a part of our panelized cabin kits. Because everything is pre-cut there is virtually no waste or mistakes on the job site.
Our panelized homes include a panelized roof system. On top of the Douglas Fir Tongue and Groove, we provide a precut insulated roof panel. We utilized EPS or Neopor foam with OSB on one side. The roof panels are attached to the T&G with 10” roof panel screws. When the roof system is installed, it is pre-insulated and at a finish level. The final step is to choose your stain color; some new homeowners even opt for a simple clear coat to allow the natural wood to stand out. Once the stain is chosen, you’re finished! This also adds to the time and expense factor, saving you more costs in the end. Roofing material, an underlayment with shingle or metal, is not provided as part of the Timber Home Package.
Saves Time, Saves Money
Your new home’s panels can be engineered and fabricated in our manufacturing plant in just a few days before being shipped to your home site. Once at the home site, the shell of a panelized home can be erected and made weather-tight in a matter of days. Delays due to weather, material delivery, and subcontractor schedules — often unavoidable in stick-built construction — are much less a problem with panelized home construction. These potentially costly hold-ups are reduced or outright eliminated.
The panelized building is an inherently green way to build and is recognized in several green building certifications, including the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard. Factory assembly means reduced construction material waste, less job site disturbance, and easier cleanup. The precision construction of panelized homes makes them known for increased energy efficiency and lower heating and cooling costs. And since most panelized homes are weather-tight in a matter of days, your new home is kept safer and dryer, reducing the probability of warping, mold, mildew, and squeaking that adverse weather may cause in traditionally built homes.
