    diversification and a commit-ment to serve our clients.One example was our lowprofile 45 foot diameter domewhich we call the Pioneer, a1847 square-foot quality builthome. It can be contractorbuilt in two to three months foan affordable price. We alsodeveloped a zoned floor planstyle that created more rightangle framing. Kitchens andbaths were planned for thesame areas of the home,using standard cabinets.We use hollow-core or 2 x 6common plumbing walls, thatlowered plumbing and elec-trical costs and providedsound insulation between thesleeping and more activeareas of the home.
