The build


 Framecad technology will speed up the timeframe of the build and increase the accuracy of the structure to less than a millimeter. Framecad delivers efficient design and faster construction with the complete FRAMECAD system. Achieve accelerated cold-formed steel (CFS) construction delivery with automated engineering and detailing software that integrates with our world-leading factory control software and advanced roll-forming manufacturing equipment.


With the Perfect block system, the walk-out basement stands up against 250mph winds, is engineered for a magnitude 8.0 earthquake, and is fire tested up to 4k Fahrenheit at four hours. This system minimizes virgin foam insulation, reduces concrete where feasible, is engineered to avoid the need for steel, and optimizes materials made of recycled content.

By combining historic cabinet details with today’s latest technology, we are able to build (next Level) cabinets.  In this video, NS Builders showcased their details that taught us how to create next-level cabinet boxes.

Hill Top house = Net-Positive House

The overarching goal is to use building science–based best practices—products, techniques, and assemblies—to construct a high-performance, net-positive house.

Positive Energy Homes are zero energy homes that are so efficient they produce more energy than they consume, leaving you with extra energy to use in other ways such as powering your mobile devices, power tools or even your electric car. There are two pathways to owning a positive energy home.
