The Minka building system is a distinctive approach to home design, fabrication, and assembly that is faster, simpler, and less wasteful than conventional construction methods.
Spanning a distinguished 30-year career as a geriatrician, professor and advocate for elders, Dr. Bill Thomas has had the benefit of tens of thousands of unique perspectives about what people truly want in life as they age. Minka is the physical embodiment of the wishes and desires of their expressed hopes and desires for housing and independence.
The Minka Build Process
Design – Customers start with our carefully laid out floor plans to create an easily-adaptable home that takes full advantage of universally designed components.
Fabrication – Every component of your Minka is crafted with speed and precision by our robotic CNC Minka Printers. Fabrication can happen simultaneous to site preparation, resulting in time and cost savings.
Assembly – The precision-cut components allow for rapid assembly on site. A semi-skilled crew can assemble a Minka in less than three days. The Minka components will arrive flat-packed, offering tremendous cost savings by eliminating wide-load permitting required by most prefabricated homes.
The Minka Investment
We pride our ourselves on our ability to provide a move-in ready home, designed with you. While we provide a range of sizes and configurations, an example Minka, in a “studio” layout with a spacious bathroom and complete kitchen can be delivered to you for approximately $100,000 (excluding final site work & finishing costs, transportation, zoning/planning costs will vary for each individual situation).
Building and creating a Minka is an intensely personal experience. The overall cost will vary based on your needs and budget.
