Progress is a strange bird. They can send a
man to the moon, build computers that think on their own,
and design cars that can almost do the thinking for you.
But when it comes to building a house you are utilizing the
same construction methods your great-great-grandfathers used
more than a hundred years ago.
Welcome to the 21st century.
There is a new concept in home construction on the horizon
ready to make its presence known in Georgia. It's called a "systems-built" home and this home constuction technique could
blaze a trail into the new millennium and radically alter
the way traditional homes are built.
"These are not manufactured homes," said Grant Smereczynsky,
developer of Building Systems Network . "These are what you
call "systems-built homes. They are 'stick-built' homes just
like you would normally find in any new-home community in
the area, except construction takes place in a climate-controlled
Building Systems Network has been developing quality-built
and affordable homes since 1998 ans set their first systems-built
home in Hall County this week.
Regardless whether you're talking about factory-built, panelized
or modular homes, in-plant construction quality is invariably
superior to what can be done on a job site. Parts cut with
a hand saw or a hand-held power circular saw at a job site
that cannot possibly be as precise as those cut with a $10,000
radial saw or a $100,000 component cutter in a factory.
So, what is a systems-built home?
Simply put, a building system is a highly engineered method
of producing building or building components in an efficient
and cost effect manner. The use of building systems is common
in many different types of residential and commercial construction.
Systems built housing is a fast-growing modern form of construction
gaining a growing recognition of its increased efficiencyand
ability to apply modern technology to the needs of the market
Smereczynsky believes that once people see the product actually
set on the foundation, they will understand why modular homes
are superior to today's site-built home.
Systems built and site-built homes are constructed to the
same building code required to your state, county and specific
locality and therefore are not restricted by building or zoning
regulations. A quality control process provides 100% assurance
that your home has been inspected at the plant during each
phase of construction. Evidence of this inspection is normally
shown by the application of a State or inspection agency label
Today's systems built homes encompasses the entire spectrum
of the housing market from the affordable single-family and
multifamily housing to high end luxury homes (several systems
built builders produce several models that sell for over half
Building Systems Network is based out of Cumming, GA and is
a member of the National Association of Home Builders.
