OHANA KITS are built on a proven modular platform and are framed in steel. Other than the kitchen cabinets, OHANA KITS use very little wood. Both as a company and as individuals we are concerned about sustainable building practices. Though steel is energy consumptive, is also strong and durable, lasting a lifetime or longer. Given Hawaii’s variety of climates and issues with mold, mildew, termites, high winds and the propensity for wood rot, we designed our homes specifically to withstand Hawaii’s many environmental challenges for decades to come.
Given Hawaii’s isolated location, we decided that materials and construction that stand the test of time and not end up in our limited landfill space would help meet one of the challenges of Island living: waste managment. Our steel frames and attachment points are highly rust resistant; any surface rust can easily be sanded and re-painted and so that it does not effect the integrity of the structure (unless it is left unaddressed for many years). Although we offer a variety of roofing materials and options, a metal standing seam roof comes standard with every model. We stand behind its performance.
