Though currently the darling of residential design & construction media, prefab is much more than a passing fashion. Prefab is here to stay. Doubt it? Just consider today’s door or window products. Only a generation ago these items were hand-built on site.

We even have custom pre-cast foundations delivered to the site (Superior Wall Inc.).
