A New World Record House - Codes And Standards - Builder Magazine

World Record House - A New Record - Codes And Standards - Builder Magazine: "Want to break the world's record for building a house?

The members of the Tyler Area Builders Association in Tyler, Texas, are the guys to beat at 2:52:29. Before you get cocky and think, “We can top that,” consider this: That time includes pouring the foundation, landscaping, and issuance of a certificate of occupancy. The three-bedroom, two-bath house has 2,249 square feet under roof (1,637 heated and cooled) with a two-car garage. And only the trusses were pre-built, says Brian Conaway, president of the Tyler Area Builders Association and chairman of the event."
