I recently had the opportunity to ask a few questions about the new product line from Jenesys Building Systems. Here's what I learned:
Have you constructed any prefab structures?
Yes. Two. Our first was a small one-off cabin, the precursor to our current line of prefab buildings that we are developing. The second is the prototype of our E Cube line.
Are any models available for sale with timely delivery?
All the models on our website are currently available for sale. Time of delivery depends on the specific options and degree of customization that a customer opts for, but we do have a chain of supply in place and are ready to take orders.
You mention the prototype; do you have any photos, imagery or other documentation of the process/final prototype?
We have some information on this page: http://jenesysbuildings.ca/products-ecube.html
Our prototype E Cube is now at "lock up", structurally complete with doors and windows. [We anticipate] completion of the finishing of the building and landscaping this summer.
Standard features of the E Cube include:
Optional features include:
name: E Cube
