Light Gauge Steel Residential Kits

Rethink Residential Wooden Framing

With residential Steel Framing kits, US Frame Factory is providing contractors and home owners an economical alternative to wood framing. With Computer-aided design we manufacture custom easy-to-assemble panelized wall kits for homes, ADUs, Tiny Homes, Studios, and other applications.

Build to last with steel

By replacing traditional wooden frames with steel you are getting a more sturdy, accurate, stable, and long-lasting building. Steel frames are significantly more versatile than typical lumber in terms of size and design. Some advantages include

Save money and time on labor with kits erected in a day.

CAD and machine production to 1/16″ tolerance

Fire, mold and rot resistant

 
 
 

No onsite waste and all factory waste is recycled

Straighter beams that never warp

Engineering to withstand hurricane winds

Manufacturing Process

CAD design files are imported into a automated steel roll former. The roll former shapes and cuts steel coils into the studs and track of your house. Service holes and indentations are punched. Studs slot into place with track to create wall panels and trusses.

What does working with us look like?

We will look at your existing architectural drawings and give you a broad price range. Then for a small fee, we can draft them on AGACAD Revit software. Once a 3D model is made we will give accurate price estimates and draft shop drawings for production. Cost is based on the amount of material/labor and is competitive with traditional construction.

Cost for Steel frame housing

Steel frame housing kits typically are usually $15-$30 per sq ft. For custom kits however there are many variables such as roof style, desired wind-loads, cost of steel at the time, and number of stories. While more costly than wood initially you will make up for it in lower insurance rates and maintenance.

Both these kits are around 30,000 USD or $20 / sq ft and rated for 120 MPH winds.

Wall Panel Shipment

We will stack your panels efficiently up to 15 levels and ship them to your location.

On-site Framing Kit Assembly

Onsite assembly is easy with minimal connections. Larger projects can be erected with just a Telescopic handler. With smaller projects, no heavy machinery is required. Most panels can be carried by two people. Kits can be assembled with simply just a drill and screws.
