In this second video, Job Captain Tobey Wandzy shows how quickly and efficiently our team was able to assemble a weather tight shell with siding and windows on our first Unity Home from Bensonwood.

In just three days the crew raised the home from foundation to fully enclosed, including a garage.

The mission of Unity Homes is to improve the quality of lives by creating homes that are healthycomfortablesolid, and frugal, as well as beautiful.

We believe these attributes must be in place to achieve a home’s noblest purpose, which is to shelter and enrich your most important assets — your family, your friends, and the precious days of your life.
