Next - A Snap-On Addition?

Made of 5,200 interlocking, friction-fitting plywood components, the 400-square-foot house was assembled mainly with clamps and rubber mallets.

The design process began at the computer, using CAD/CAM software. A precise, 1-to-6 scale model was then laser-cut to test-fit all components.

Once the model assembly checked out, full-size parts were produced on a CNC router, cut from 3/4-inch B/C plywood.

The pieces remained captive in the parent sheet for shipping.

At the build site, assemblers freed them with a hand router and fit them together in numbered sequence.
