JD Metals FastFrame 833 sq ft House

FastFrame and JD Metals tower over the 2024 Kingsport Home Show

On March 8-10, 2024, JD Metals literally towered over the 50th annual Kingsport Home Show with its 2- story FastFrame residential house frame inside the Meadowview Conference Center.  To begin, preparation for the event started on the Tuesday before, when a crew erected the entire house frame in approximately 8 hours.  That’s one of the benefits of pre-assembled, modular construction: it is FAST. 

Residential Framing

The show home featured 2 bedrooms (one on the main level and a loft bedroom/flex space upstairs) and 2 full baths.  The open living/kitchen/dining area’s two-story ceiling height made the most of the floor plan’s compact 833 square feet.  The framing highlighted the straight lines of steel, as well as the ease of running electrical and plumbing through precut utility holes. One of our in-house CAD designers, Angel Hicks, created beautiful renderings of modern interiors to help home show visitors envision what the space could become, right down to the fireplace and artwork. Is 833 square feet not quite big enough for you?  Check out our home plan page for inspiration!

Garages and Buildings

Residential framing is not the only use for steel framing- JD Metals offers turn-key and DIY garage and building options, building to your exact specifications. Our color simulators help you to imagine what your new garage, barn or building will look like, in color!  Home Show visitors were treated to slide shows of various building options, sparking imaginations for new builds.  Thinking about a new building yourself?  Our building page is a great place to start.

Thousands visited Kingsport Home Show, and a great many stopped by our JD Metals and FastFrame booths to chat.  As always, we had a great time meeting the public and showing off all of our product lines.  We can’t wait until next year, but how will we top this year’s build? Stay tuned and see!
