A home that is stick-built is constructed on the actual building site, piece by piece. Typically exterior walls are 2x6 framing while interior walls are constructed of 2x4's. Wall sheating is typically placed on the exterior of the studs to give it strength and rigidity. Manufactured and modular homes are not classified as stick-built because they are made mostly in the factory and then transported to the site. A custom home may be stick-built, provided that they are constructed on the land where they will remain. This is also known as site built construction. This type of construction is very typical for a custom home, however there are many combination of systems which may be used with the stick built system including a trussed roof.
