— Do I have to build my home kit on a concrete slab set to grade?

The most economical way for our unique steel home framing to be built is on a concrete foundation poured to grade (concrete on ground). Our 10-phase Assembly Guide illustrates installation of columns and attachment of our steel forming system to accommodate a 4-inch concrete slab, and do it cheaper, easier and faster than any other way.

Having said that, we recognize that some customers are interested in building over a basement, on a considerable slope, or elevated enough for a crawl space beneath. This can often be done with some design adjustments and a supplemental steel package for transitional steel — we do it all the time.

If you are very interested in building one of our steel kits in this way, we recommend ordering our Expanded Planning Package and contacting one of our friendly project coordinators who can help guide you through the process.
