The homes are made of wood and light gauge steel products to make it durable. They have real kitchens and bathrooms sometimes made of granite and marble to enable people to go on with their lives normally. Being customizable, they can be designed with multiple bedrooms based on occupants’ specification to meet any family size. The steel roof reflects the sun and allows insulation with the R-19 value which is used throughout the home to maintain a conducive environment indoors. The homes are constantly checked during construction and installation to verify their quality and to ensure they meet set standards.

The advantage of the GSH includes; provision of state of the art technology, environmentally friendly and energy-efficient homes at a low cost thus meeting budget plans; use of less outside the workforce, fast construction time and fewer erection days; reduced life costs in that they need lower maintenance and energy costs.
