Looking at working with Wausau Homes. Sounds like they provide a business system for general contractors, but the work is completed by local subs. Been around for a long time, anyone have experience with this business? framing or building?
I talked to them once, they do require a significant investment in showroom and the like. It is a decent system and they have had success with it for many years. It just did not fit my business model.
For us doing custom homes and some in the higher end, adding their system did not make sense as it would take away from our other business. operating under a different name in our smaller market would not be feasible since it is fairly small and everyone would know they were basically the same company.
That said, Systems built homes I believe are the way of the future. due to labor shortages in our industry and costs, systems such as theirs will continue to grow.
