Framing the American Dream

Framing the American Dream, a project sponsored by WTCA, individual component manufacturers, supplier companies, and the Building Systems Council of NAHB, featured two 2,600 square-foot homes built simultaneously. One was built using wood component systems framing (wall panels and roof trusses), and the other fully engineered conventional stick framing.

"The use of roof trusses and wall panels resulted in a 16% savings"
