Description:

BACKGROUND

1. Description of the Prior Art

Current methods used to construct buildings, notably commercial buildings but, not limited to, is to construct a wall or roof by installing the outer planer surface of a suitable material that will support and protect the interior of the building, it's occupants, and the property contained within, onto a multitude of vertical columns spaced evenly, creating a substantially rectangular, three dimensional shape. A subsequent interior layer of insulating material may then be applied to the interior of the building adjacent to the exterior planer surface facilitating a thermal and sound barrier. Alternately, the walls or roof sections may be pre-fabricated in substantially rectangular sections and then installed onto the building frame work effectively enclosing the interior of the building as noted in Lanahan Aug. 31, 1999 U.S. Pat. No. # 5,943,775. Lanahan's design requires an elaborate pre-process that would impede the manufacture to only the most basic sizes and shapes, thus raising the manufacturing costs to an unacceptable level. Lanahan Jan. 2, 2001, which is a re-issue of Lanahan Aug. 31, 1999 U.S. Pat. No. # 5,943,775. This reissue also requires extensive and elaborate pre-processing, as well as, elaborate and expensive process equipment.
