From the outside, the new homes going up in the Dallas-Fort Worth area may look like other modern, minimalist digs. But these are built with a difference: Instead of using wood beams and lumber to frame up the inside of the houses, Netze Homes uses recycled steel—resulting in structures it says are stronger and more fire- and termite-resistant, replete with budget-friendly overhangs that increase energy efficiency.
According to the Dallas Morning News’ Mitchell Parton, Netze Homes plans to break ground on 150 homes this year in Corinth, Denton, Krum, McKinney, Mesquite, and Van Alstyne, and aims to max out its factory in 2024 to produce 300 homes a year from three metal-forming machines run by 20 employees.
On its website, the company says its goal is “to lead the way in low-carbon design and construction, and to inspire a future of sustainable living.”
“Our goal is to do as many as possible,” Netze CEO and Architect Nejeeb Khan told the DMN, adding that his process speeds up the homebuilding process, with an eventual goal of framing homes in three days and building them out within 3 months
“We shouldn’t be spending nine months to build a home when we have so much demand,” Khan told the DMN in a story you can read here.
