EUROHOUSE home is the strongest, safest, and healthiest shelter you can provide.
Most houses in the United States are "site built," which means that all or nearly all of their components are fabricated on the
job site from raw boards or processed lumber products like plywood. Obviously, people have been building things out of
wood for thousands of years, and this approach has worked pretty well -- in normal circumstances. Unfortunately, if you wait
long enough something abnormal may happen that wood cannot handle. Wood can rot, mold, or be destroyed by termites.
It burns easily, and it performs poorly in catastrophic situations like earthquakes, hurricanes and tornadoes. Even worse,
quality wood is becoming increasingly difficult to find. Most loads of lumber contain several pieces with obvious defects that
must be culled before construction begins, and apparently solid pieces may conceal hidden defects that can cause a failure under high stress.
EUROHOUSE offers you a superior alternative to typical home construction. We have adapted one of the most successful
types of commercial construction -- pre-engineered steel framing -- for the residential market. Our bolt-together framing serves as
the backbone for the strongest, safest, and healthiest shelter you can provide for yourself and your family. Even better, our homes
are economical, easy to build, and attractive. No other system can do as much for you. A handful of other steel home companies
also have bolt-together red-iron framing, but only EUROHOUSE’s uses structural steel I-beams for the main columns and rafters.
We have the strongest residential framing system available... period.
It is important to note that EUROHOUSE’s framing is totally different from light-gauge steel framing systems. With a light-gauge system,
builders follow traditional stick-built design principles but substitute steel studs for wooden ones. Although light-gauge framing probably
performs better than its wooden counterpart, it suffers from a couple of significant drawbacks. First of all, light-gauge framing has more
in common with a site-fabricated house than a fully-engineered system. It offers no improvement over stick-built designs and fails to take full advantage of steel's capabilities. Secondly,
light-gauge framing is a complicated, labor-intensive hybrid with no long history in commercial or residential construction and
no ready pool of experienced framers. As a screw-together system, light-gauge framing will be unfamiliar and likely unappealing to
both framing carpenters and steel erectors, so competent labor may be difficult to find.
EUROHOUSE pre-engineered designs take full advantage of the properties of steel to offer you numerous advantages over other
methods of construction. Some of these advantages are described in more detail in the following pages of this section...
