Framing the American Dream

Framing the American Dream, a project sponsored by WTCA, individual component manufacturers, supplier companies, and the Building Systems Council of NAHB, featured two 2,600 square-foot homes built simultaneously. One was built using wood component systems framing (wall panels and roof trusses), and the other fully engineered conventional stick framing.

"The use of roof trusses and wall panels resulted in a 16% savings"


Custom Plans / Drafting Fees

If you didn't find what you were looking for in our pre-engineered plans, California Pre-Cut Homes (CPH) can help you go from dream to completion of your own custom design. We can take your ideas from a sketch that will then be turned into a completed engineered plan. We can help you with designing a new home, secondary home, cabin, addition to your home, detached garage or workshop, pool house, barn, and some multiple dwellings.

We are a drafting company that offers a design service with a structural engineer who will complement our service. Calif. Pre-Cut Homes is not a licensed architect. We do about 10 to 40 drafting jobs a year. The majority of the work produced by Calif. Pre-Cut Homes is custom design floor plans and packages. When we say “custom” we do not mean high-end. We mean custom to the owner’s wants and needs. We will be more than happy to work in developing a truly custom and affordable plan. If you already have a completed set of plans, we would be able to work from those as well.

Building Kits

What's Included In Our Panelized Building Kits

Sierra Home Kits and Pacific Modern Homes, Inc. (PMHI) specializes in the design and manufacturing of panelized wall sections and wood roof trusses; then packaging them with all the materials needed to frame your home, barn or garage. In addition, our building kits include Pre-Engineered Building Plans and the foundation design. When your panelized building kit is delivered to your job site SHK/PMHI provides a Panelized Wall PlanRoof Truss Layout and Computerized Inventory. The Panelized Wall Plan indicates where the pre-framed and number walls section are used in the construction process. To further speed the construction process these wall sections already have factory installed windows and wall sheathing. In some cases the finished siding is installed. The Roof Truss Layout indicates where the lettered trusses are placed during roof construction. The Computerized Inventory itemizes where the remaining material will be used in the construction process.

SHK/PMHI provides two types of packages. One for projects built in the United States, referred to as 'Domestic' Packages. The other for projects built outside of the United States referred to as 'Export' Packages.
