Simple Sustainable Building
At Truss House our vision is ‘restoring truth, hope and home’. Recognizing that in the current economic climate, it is not just a housing crisis we are trying to recover from. Our goal is Simple Sustainable Housing by communities, for communities.
Housing is our primary method to remain connected to our tāngata (people), our whenua (land) and our whānau (families).
Our company is 100% women owned. Our directors are SheEO members, one is an Edmund Hillary Fellow and our team comes with extensive corporate/finance support, extensive technical expertise and community engagement/training expertise.
What is a Truss House™
We recognize that communities are driven to address their own placemaking process. We provide access to a locally constructed, rapidly-build, sustainable high performance building system.
Using a network of NZ based Frame & Truss (F&T) fabricators we are unique housing solution with;

No MVP limitations or scaling up/down costs (build 1, 100, 1000) using the established network of F&T fabricators. (Scaling down can be as risky as scaling up in the current economic climate)
Passive design/Net Zero Ready as standard with low-cost insulation/air tightness options
Ability to adapt existing ‘standard’ designs/floor plans to a frame-based solution or easily create new designs using standard frame profiles
Zero interior load bearing walls for ease of universal design and a co-design process
