TrusSteel Helps to Frame the New American Home
Each year, the New American Home demonstrates new and innovative construction materials and techniques. The 2007 Home incorporated TrusSteel CFS trusses as the only structural steel framing components used on the project.
According to the National Association of Home Builders, "The New American Home Project is a ‘real-world’ laboratory demonstrating concepts, materials, designs and construction techniques that can be replicated -- in whole or in part -- in housing built any place and in any price range. Incorporating such elements as energy efficiency, indoor-air quality, safety, market value and other components of the building block is a principal goal of the program. The TNAH mission is to show that 'housing performance' can be incorporated into the most simple or most complex homes, and that it’s equally as important as aesthetics."
TrusSteel cold-formed steel (CFS) trusses can fit on any project, "built any place and in any price range". And they are efficient, safe and GREEN.
The 2007 Home was built in Orlando within the Lake Eola historic district. The design is modern -- a departure from the traditional vernacular that dominates American home building.
TrusSteel trusses for this project were fabricated by Scosta Corporation, a TrusSteel Authorized Fabricator located in Sebring, FL (863-381-5646).
