Building a house is no easy task. It's even harder when you have to bring all the materials, tools, and people to your property to do it.

Most builders don't frame homes in 5 days or less, but Wausau Homes can because we are panelized construction experts with professionally trained set crews, subcontractors, and builders who know how to get the job done right. We'll be there every step of the way from framing your home on day one until we hand over your keys at closing so that you can move into your new home faster than anyone else in our industry.

What is panelized construction?

We can build the wall, flooring, and roof trusses in our state-of-the-art facility because of a unique panelized construction process. Using advanced computer technology we are able to take the design blueprints and create a set of panels built to the exact specifications and shipped directly from our facility. Every panel is assembled using equipment that guarantees every piece is perfectly level and fits together.

Our professional team of structural engineers and draftsmen ensures all homes are built with the highest precision, quality, and consistency. Since this is all done in our climate-controlled environment, our craftsmen don’t battle the typical outdoor elements. This ensures a more robust, tighter, higher-quality home with less waste and no cost overruns or time delays.

What about on-site construction? 

Once the local Wausau Homes builder puts in the foundation, the panelized framework is sent to the job site and assembled by a crew and crane in 1-5 days, depending on the home’s size. Each panel is strategically placed in order so that our crane and crew can put together every inch of your new home, piece by piece. Our panels lock into each section of the framework with precision. This means no need to worry about gaps or mismatched walls later down the line.

This process is better than traditional stick-built construction because it eliminates the need to wait for individual materials to be delivered, measuring and cutting everything on-site on uneven surfaces, and leaving materials exposed to the elements over time. All of the materials are delivered right to the job-site without the multiple trips to the local hardware box store. Our team can work more efficiently. The framework is up in days as opposed to months and you can watch everything get completed before the kids even have a chance to get bored.

Materials are up and under the roof faster, virtually eliminating long-term exposure to the elements. Your builder will coordinate local tradesmen to complete the remaining exterior and interior home construction on the job site in as few as 120 days. They are getting you moved into your new home faster. 

So what makes panelized construction better?

Our proven panelized construction process allows us to customize every aspect of your home to your family's lifestyle. Our factory-crafted building process does not limit our designs but only makes your home better. How? Let’s review!

  • Panels can be assembled quickly with minimal human labor required.
  • Panelized construction reduces waste by using precise measurements.
  • The framework is delivered to the site in panels, which speeds up the on-site construction timeline.
  • The panels also offer superior insulation value compared to traditional framing methods.
  • Every panel is precision-crafted and of higher quality, since it’s built indoors on level surfaces.
  • Perfect for our local independent builders who are always looking for new ways to reduce the build timeline without compromising quality!

Essentially, Wausau Homes uses state-of-the-art technology to craft your perfect home.
