Having 28 Years of Experience in all facets of the Real Estate and Home Building Industry, Felix recognized a need for a stronger and affordable eco-friendly building system after seeing first hand how Hurricane Katrina ravaged New Orleans, Louisiana and the surrounding areas in 2005.
After extensively researching innovative alternatives to conventional construction methods and determining that building with Steel was the most logical option to a more efficient, safer and faster method, Steel Green Homes, LLC was born.
Over the last 12 years in conjunction with our Manufacturing Suppliers, our Steel Framed System has been shipped and constructed globally housing of families as well as rebuilding health clinics, schools and even an office complex.
With the creation of our newest model, The Cape Coral, we have set our sites on introducing a product that accommodates the domestic home buyer while exceeding the National wind load and Seismic requirements. We are also proud to say that each unit we construct, whether it be one of our models or a floorplan of your own, will be more energy efficient than virtually any other building system being offered in today's market.
