Levels of Shell Completion


Concrete Shells are offered at 4 levels of completion

  1. Base Shell: Concrete shell with wood interior
  2. Dry Shell: Base Shell with finished, watertight exterior
  3. Warm Shell: Insulated Dry Shell with heat, lights, and drywall
  4. Finished Shell: Complete turnkey structure ready to be occupied


Once the Base Shell has been cast, the structural requirements for the project have been satisfied. You can choose to take over at any time.


We offer discounts on our Shell products when they are combined with a basement, pool, hardscape, or additional retaining walls. All of our Shells are offered with per square foot pricing so that you can manage you and your client’s budget more accurately. Our Shell projects don’t tend to have any surprise costs that blow up a budget.
