Steel Framed Cottages

You've found the perfect piece of land, now what? You want your dream home to be perfect, but there are so many options. Consider a custom built steel frame home. Like most people, you probably thought a nice home had to be built with wood. But, consider this, lightweight steel made from recycled cars is good for the planet as well as your wallet. A custom made steel frame modular home is made in a climate controlled environment. It will be shipped to your job site ready to assemble. Not only does it take less time to build but there is less waste to go to the land fill. A steel framed cottage will look exactly like one made of wood but be safer and more cost efficient.

Because they are not affected by temperature changes or humidity steel frame homes are energy efficient. Not only will you save money on fuel costs, you will help to conserve natural resources. Wood framed houses use 40 - to - 50 trees in their construction, compared to a home made of recycled steel that only uses six recycled cars.

The Healthy House Institute recommends steel framed homes for anyone that is chemically-sensitive. If you are concerned about the quality of your indoor air, then a steel framed home is what you want. Because steel does not absorb moisture it does not grow mold or rot.

Steel framed homes are also safer than traditional wood homes. Steel is non-combustible. It will not burn, it will become misshaped in a fire, but it will not create the kind of blaze a wood framed home will.

If you want to lessen your carbon footprint while building the home of your dreams consider a beautiful, environmentally friendly steel framed cottage.
