It sounds counter-intuitive, but it is the way to go.

I do a lot of similar-type work on whiteboards. Drawing grids and wireframes every time, and redrawing them when I accidentally touch any of the lines is really, really annoying.

Then it dawned on me. Now each of my whiteboards has a “hard-coded” structure drawn by permanent markers. During the day, I fill in the “blanks” with normal markers, and then wipe them off. Voila! I can continue on the new stuff immediately.

Two results come from this. 1 - you can spend some time and make the wire-framing neat and clean. 2 - working speed skyrockets because you don’t care of accidental wipes and don’t waste time on redrawing.
