steel framing for new homes

Posted by matt on January 23rd, 2001 07:43 PM

What we need here isn't a link to a dealer's web site(already got that), but the opinions of the "experts" of this forum. Aside from the many benefits of steel framing, we're most concerned of cost, then safety from weather and fire.

Has anyone had a steel frame home built and what are the costs compared to wood framing? Our home will be 1700 sq/ft and we're in the Houston, Texas area. We're getting a fishy figure when comparing the Steel Alliance online calculator with a steel framing contractor. Any sad tales to tell or anything we should watch out for? Thanks.
