Saskatoon's first BONE Structure home under construction
House being assembled on Temperance Street
A new home being built in Saskatoon wasn't constructed using LEGO or Meccano, but the building method was inspired by the children's toys.
The city's first BONE Structure home is being assembled at 612 Temperance Street. The style of home can be built in just days. It uses a lightweight recycled steel frame, and like LEGO, the pieces easily fit together.
The frame can support up to four storeys and lets homeowners configure walls, windows and doors. A unique feature is that the homes have no load-bearing walls or columns.
Mayor Don Atchison and Marc A. Bovet, founder of BONE Structure, will be on site this afternoon.
The home is open to the public over the weekend.
