Brian and Bob Schieler speak to OffSiteDirt.com about their big move into 5 story modular construction. After almost 18 years of building single family wood-frame custom and semi-custom modular homes, they have now shifted their focus to large multi-family, apartments, hotels and housing development construction projects and expanded their reach to serve the entire USA.
