How long does it take to build a tiny home for the homeless?

Our jig system and assembly line style building process allow us to work on multiple homes at a time in our 15,000 square foot building facility.  To build and assemble four walls and the roof framing takes an inexperienced group a single day.  A team of experience volunteers can frame two homes in a day.  The remaining steps, including insulation, interior wall & ceiling panels, flooring, roofing, interior & exterior trim, and interior & exterior paint, require about two weeks from start to finish.  At a moderate and consistent pace, we finish roughly four homes per week.
