A Starring Role!

Volstrukt was asked recently to participate in the an episode of the Texas Flip N Move show on DIYNetwork! We provided the quick-up steel frames for their Gary's Girls vs Guys tiny home build challenge. Our frames were up in a day save for some final detail work, and sheathing began the next day on-schedule. We were thrilled to see our steel frames saving the day in the challenge by saving the two teams both time and effort. To view the show, catch it on the DIY channel all this week, or you can watch it for a $3 cable network charge on Youtube here.

Comparing Tiny House Trailers

As steel framing specialist for the tiny house industry, we’ve been uniquely positioned to build on customers' trailers from all across the nation.

Most  Tiny House builders find one trailer manufacturer and stick to them. Others have gone the route of designing their own tiny house trailer and sticking with that. There are also a handful of trailer manufacturers out there who, although they may produce high volumes of trailers, really only experience their own trailers for the industry.
