nice house, i have a question for you though. ecosteel does not post a per sq ft cost range on their website for a custom home. in fact, reduced costs are not listed as a benefit to using steel framing. do you have any info on costs? thank you.
No, they don't have costs posted. They did when we started, and we had stock designs shown. But then we were getting nothing but requests for custom designs which costed out more than the stock designs. And people's expectation was that it would be the same.The steel is a premium when compared to conventional framed homes. But there can be some cost advantage for a builder or developer building multiple houses at once.
I should add - if you want some basic info on cost, and to talk about the process call EcoSteel, or fill out the inquiry form on the web site.
Very interesting...please keep updating the pics as you get farther along...thanks!
