Hickory, NC (PRWEB) February 14, 2012
Just 18 months ago, Timber Block Ecological Homes expanded into the U.S. market. In that time, several dealerships have opened up coast to coast in the United States. Already in 2012, plans for new sales models have been confirmed for several areas, including North Carolina and Colorado.
Timber Block’s technology caught the eye of not only single family home owners, but international builders and developers, when they realized a home could be built with the beauty and feel of wood, but without any of the hassle typically associated with building with wood.
Timber Block President Mike Mathon says the success of the company came from the ability to deliver what the consumer asks for: “Building a home is a big decision for people, and so they certainly want it to be done right. They want the construction process to be completed quickly and efficiently, while never sacrificing the quality of their home.” Due to Timber Block’s efficient system building, the walls of a Timber Block home are assembled in hours, the home will be weather tight in days, and the home owner will be able to move in 60 days faster than other custom built homes.
Timber Block also realizes the importance of energy efficiency, and with its patented insulation procedure, every Timber Block home includes R-3o insulation in the walls – this greatly reduces the amount of the homeowner’s energy bill each month. Further, building with wood can be a concern, because wood will settle and check (crack). Timber Block’s wood is dried to an 8% moisture content, (furniture grade) eliminating the risk of settling and checking.
Further, people want to build their home the way they want to. “Almost 90% of our customers will customize their home. We are able to offer stock models, partial custom, and full custom – the home can be built from their dreams and ideas,” says Mathon.
Timber Block is a family-owned company, and is a patented and proprietary product.
Timber Block’s newest model, the Sonoma will be featured at the Cottage and Country Homes Show at the Olympic Stadium, in Montreal, Quebec, February 16-19. The show is one of the largest Cottage Home Shows in North America. The Sonoma was first launched earlier this month at the City and Suburb Home Show in Montreal. Close to 69,000 people attended.
