Prefab Round Houses from Deltec

From small to big as long as it is round…”The Deltec Circular Home package is a pre-cut, panelized building system. “Panelized construction” involves the prefabrication of a structure in identifiable “panels” that can be easily transported directly to the jobsite and quickly assembled on the foundation.Almost half of the new homes built in the USA are panelized or systems-built.
