Excellent overall buying experience

The relationship you build with your local builder and our combined focus provides a positive buying and building experience because your home is engineered to be efficient, quiet, cost effective and safe all while meeting your design needs

Built in a controlled environment

Your home is framed in a controlled environment, improving the overall quality not only in the execution of labor but also in the usage of materials that are not exposed to inclement weather; your home is weather-tight onsite 2-3 times quicker than stick built structures resulting in a healthier building

We're an innovative industry leader

We have an advanced method of panelization to produce consistently high quality walls, floors, and roof systems, also, we're continuously refining our approach to home building

Lower holding costs

Quicker construction methods means your home is ready to move into sooner and also means lower holding costs during the construction period

Green building practices

Our process will give you peace of mind that your home is built in a environmentally friendly way: all components are pre-engineered and pre-cut using our state-of-the-art equipment, which eliminate field framing mistakes and also, home components are shipped on own trucks to home site

Custom built for you

We offer custom plan modifications to make home plans perfect; there are no design limitations as our processes allow for complete customization for your home plans

Computer engineered

3D modeling of your home in the design phase allow you to “see” your home before it is built, also, all aspects of your home are computer engineered, built with the aid of automated systems and delivered to your site when promised and home package is delivered within four weeks from the day you sign your contracts to build

Fits your budget

We provide quality, low maintenance materials for homebuyers, regardless of their overall budget

Quality products

We test all our products before they're offered ensuring that they harmonize beauty, comfort and practicality

Watch this stick built vs. component built comparison below

Would you ask your mechanic to go to the local auto parts store and buy what he or she needs to build a car? We wouldn’t either. That’s why here at Blenker Building Systems, all our homes are designed and engineered with manufactured components. Manufactured components complete the task of framing in less time, using less material and ultimately, resulting in a more reliable structure. We teamed up with the Structural Building Components Association (SBCA) to showcase how efficient our manufactured components are compared to stick built homes. The proof is in the video below.

What did this study do?

  • The Framing the American Dream study set up a controlled experiment to allow for a comparison
  • Their floor plan was an average 2900 square foot ranch-style house with a walk out basement (they built two identical houses on adjacent lots)
  • One house was built on site using stick framing while the other was built using floor panels, wall panels, and roof trusses manufactured in nearby production facilities
  • Wireless cameras were setup to record video up from both job sites (This approach was taken to allow data collection to be as unobtrusive as possible)

What did they learn from this study?

  • According to this study, they examined two houses, one built with stick framing and the other built with structural building component framing and the results showed “that a crew can frame two and half homes with structural building components in the time it takes to stick-frame one house”
  • According to this study, “The component-framed house required 152.1 man-hours to complete, whereas the stick-framed house required 373.5 hours. It took two and half-times longer to construct the stick-framed version of the floorplan”
  • According to this study, “it takes 75% more lumber wood product to stick frame a structure than to frame it with components” 
  • It also found “that a stick-framed house creates nearly 30 times more jobsite waste than a component-framed house”
