Building a home using traditional methods is, well, like choosing not to recycle. It's wasteful, to be sure. We've all seen the construction sites with their dumpsters overflowing with wasted building materials that never quite make it into building structures. This is because, as careful as they try to be, on-site construction crews are still dealing in less than perfect surroundings.
A state-of-the-art factory setting is where precision is achieved. If you think about it, how would you like your newly-ordered dream car to be built from scratch and painted right in your front driveway, with whatever materials and workers were available within your immediate vicinity.
Of course your sheet metal workers won't have the precision of those high-tech machines you might find in an automobile factory. Inclement weather is definitely bad if you're right in the middle of upholstering your seats.
What about security? "That's the third time my catalytic converter went missing! Now we have to order another one. That will take 3 more weeks!" Who gets to foot the bill for these costly overruns?
Well, it's the same with building your new home. How can a home which is built on-site possibly compare with the same home which is built indoors and to precise factory specifications using state-of-the-art machinery? The answer is that it cannot. Precision means less mistakes, factory-setting means extra materials never go to waste.
