Stick Built - Conventional construction

A stick-built home is one constructed entirely or largely on-site; that is, built on the site which it is intended to occupy upon its completion rather than in a factory or similar facility. This term is used to contrast such a dwelling with modular homes that are pre-assembled and transported to the site entirely or mostly complete. In general, homes that are custom designed or built according to stock plans are considered stick-built so long as they are constructed on-site.

Stick built homes are also those homes which are built using a more conventional method of home building rather than a timber framed type. The term stick built may be somewhat of a misnomer, simply because they are not sticks being used but wood planks. The name may lead some to believe the homes are not well constructed or sturdy however this could not be further from the truth. The "sticks" mentioned usually refer specifically to the superstructure of the walls and roof and floor deck.

Most stick built homes have many of the same elements in common. They are usually built with nominal lumber, though it is possible to use metal framing members for the construction.
