Kingston Lumber Panels

BCMC Build 2015: Side by Side Time Lapse

This time-lapse video provides a side-by-side comparison of two identical homes being framed. The only difference between them is the house on the left was stick-framed on site, while the house on the right was framed using floor trusses, wall panels and roof trusses. The video provides clear proof that structural components are the better way to frame.

Kingston Lumber Supply Panelized Wall System Testimonials:

“Central Highlands, Inc. is a small to medium real estate development and residential construction company that completes an average of 50 homes per year in Western Washington. In our most recent development, the 128 house plat of Summerset totaling 128 homes, we used Kingston Lumber wall panels exclusively. The principal reasons why we at Central Highlands choose Kingston Lumber wall panels are efficiency, quality control, and cost savings.

“Efficiency- Having the walls prefabricated reduces framing duration by an average of two days per floor. In today’s hot real estate and construction markets, we’ve found it tremendously beneficial to deliver homes more quickly and demand less of the framing contractor’s time.

“Quality Control- Working with panel designer Ian MacPherson, we have been able to fine tune months in advance of delivery a multitude of plans to the finest detail including but not limited to rough opening sizes, grab bar backing, cabinet backing, and advanced framing details. Upon framing up a new plan, Ian typically makes a site visit to document and implement any further changes needed. In our experience, site quality control inspections of Kingston lumber packages following Ian’s visit are not necessary.

“Cost Savings- While Kingston Lumber’s prefabricated have a higher initial cost than loose lumber packages, we typically are able to achieve an offsetting savings in the form of a cheaper bid from the framer and reduced supervision.”

“We have used the wall panel system from Kingston Lumber on a number of projects over the last few years. We have found the process to be very timely. Their staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. The submittal package is very thorough and complete. This allows for a detailed review, ensuring a problem free panel package. The system has proven more cost effective than traditional framing methods and it allows the walls to be tilted into place very quickly, saving time and keeping the material dry. This is very important in the Pacific Northwest.”

“I highly recommend to any homeowner/builder or professional contractor striving for excellence in the construction of their residential project to use Kingston Lumber’s panelized wall system. As a professional builder of thirty years, I have seen many changes in this industry. It has continually become harder and more complicated to meet the demands in residential construction such as engineering, resource efficiency, experienced labor, and project continuity. The wall panelization system if used competently will satisfy these demands and give you a product of much higher quality and value. What used to take us two months now only takes two weeks. We have no missed use or loss of materials. It all starts with good planning and from my experience, Kingston Lumber has the ability to provide a panelized wall system with confidence and seamless service. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.”
