That’s right - wall panels have been used on every wood frame home since the onset of dimensional lumber and the invention of platform framing in the late 1700’s. Wall panels (a/k/a/wall-frames) have always been laid-out, parts cut, and assembled on a flat surface, usually on the floor deck or slab of the structure being framed.
