Bison Modular Homes Releases Steel Homes Product Line
Beausejour, MB - Bison Modular Homes is offering seven new modular homes consisting of self-framing, structural insulated steel panels. The seven new home layouts range from 13'-18' wide, 1-4 bedrooms, and single family homes to triplex models.
"Today is an important day for our company," said Bison Modular Homes president Tyler Prevost. "Launching these steel homes is the next big step in solving the ongoing housing crises across Canada, which is why we've already begun constructing these units."
Along with the seven steel homes, Bison Modular Homes will continue to offer four different container home options too. This offers communities flexibility in both product type and size, all while Bison Modular Homes' prefabrication remains the same. The only structural difference is the absence of a shipping container, which is substituted for the insulated steel panels.
"This decision makes the most sense at this time,' said Prevost. "We were monitoring the increasing lumber and material prices, and then decided to pursue a steel modular product. We have several Manitoba First Nations on board with these new modular home designs."
Norway House Cree Nation, the company's original partner, is the first community on board. Six of the 28 Bison Modular Homes in Norway House, Manitoba are getting constructed using steel panels. As with the container home line, the steel homes can be connected and built on-site. One of the homes headed to Norway House is a one-bedroom duplex, another a four-bedroom home.
Drywall and other interior finishings can be attached directly to the steel panel face. Upon completion each home still has a custom interior finish along with exceptional air tightness and thermal properties. Both metal and spray foam insulation also make these units rot proof, mould proof, and rodent proof.
