ABOUT OUR MODULAR HOME KITS
Imagine saving thousands building your own home with one of our panelized housing kits.
Imagine assembling your new home building kit in about 3 to 4 days.
the novice handyman will be able to build the home
of their dreams with our affordable and easy to
assemble upgraded housing packages. Save thousands
building your own home with one of our panelized
home kits. Our panelized homes are far superior to
any building materials used to build homes today.
They are stronger, easier to build and are more
energy efficient than stick built construction.
Our structural insulated panel kits are superior
to both modular home and manufactured homes. Our kits
can also be finished to look like log homes or
cabins and are much easier to build than log homes
or log cabin kits (See "Models" for more
information). We can also do most commercial
buildings too! Our home kits are strong, simple to
build, energy efficient and top
Our modular homes are manufactured
with Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), a
factory manufactured wall system that replaces
standard stick framing and batt insulation with a
solid one piece wall section composed of two
sheets of oriented strand board (OSB) that has
been adhesively welded to a thick rigid core of
expanded polystyrene foam insulation
Oriented strand board (OSB),
first developed in the 1980’s, is a wood panel
that has been “engineered to perform” for housing
and construction. OSB is not chipboard,
flakeboard, particleboard, or aspenite. It has
been specifically designed to be the most
dependable, versatile, and environmentally
efficient wood panel on the market today. OSB uses
only freshly harvested trees from sustainable fast
growing forests or tree farms. The trees are
processed into precise strands averaging 4 inches
long and 1 inch wide. The strands are oriented
length-wise on the exterior and cross-aligned on
the interior. The alternating layers are then
bonded with resins under high heat and pressure.
The resulting product is very strong and uniform
and shares many of the same properties as plywood.
Because of its great versatility and performance,
we have chosen OSB in all areas of our homes where
strength, stiffness, and durability are
Expanded polystyrene (EPS)
has proven to be the most cost-effective panel
core insulation material available. EPS has the
highest R-value per dollar invested. Its R-value
per inch is much higher than fiberglass or
cellulose insulations. "R" means resistance
to heat flow. The higher the R-value, the greater
the insulating power. EPS is also physically
stable, unlike fiberglass or cellulose, which tend
to settle with time, creating voids and many
thermal breaks. Unlike most insulation products,
the R-value of EPS increases as the temperature
drops. EPS is an inert, organic, recyclable
material. It contains no CFC's, HCFC's, or HFC's,
will not rot, is resistant to mildew, and provides
no food value to animals (including
Our Underwriter's Lab
report shows that our modified (M) Arco EPS
(expanded polystyrene) exhibits a flame spread of
5. The BOCA Code allows 75. EPS exhibited a smoke
developed rating of 55 to 175 the BOCA allows
The EPS foam core provides
shear strength, while the exterior skins of OSB
provide tensile and compressive strength. As
compared to an I-beam, the panel skins are
analogous to the flanges, while the core is its
web. The completed panels offer the utmost in
R-value, fire resistance, and ease of
construction. They are the key structural
component in "one-piece" construction, which is
significantly stronger than similarly configured
Uniformly sound and extra
rigid, OSB roof sheathing handles snow and wind
loads with ease.
OSB Tongue and Groove sub
floor sheeting provides a strong rigid and
impact-resistant platform for underlayment,
carpet, or tiles.
VALUBUILD Panel Homes Corp features structural insulated
panels exclusively in their home kit models.
The advantages of using SIPs are many:
are fewer restrictions to design and more choices
to customize from cabin to castle. Our panels
are also available in 9', 10', & 12' heights,
so we can easily convert your existing plans,
or even convert a custom designed layout to
our superior building system.
Finishes apply easily:
OSB surface provides a sturdy and continuous
nail and screw base to which exterior and interior
finishing materials can easily be attached.
Reduced energy use:
By virtue of its solid walls and monolithic
construction, over 2000 linear feet of cracks
normally found in the walls of the average stick
built, home are eliminated. Heating and air
conditioning costs can be reduced by 40%-60%
over the life of the home.
