My wife was on earlier, asking about the housing market in Houston. I'm looking for some home builders to contact about possible sub-contract work. I'm a framer from Nebraska and would really like to get into the south to enjoy year round work.

Default Home builders in Texas

Although the housing market has slowed in some parts of the country it is still pretty hot in Houston. Because Houston has so much land there are a lot of developers who buy up land and plop down massive master planned communities. These communities always have a series of builders and there is a lot of work. The problem in Houston is that there are so many framers and I know one personally who works for under min wage (you can figure this one out). Basically, most framers work for under $10 with no benefits in Houston. Good tract home builders in the Houston area that you could check with include: Newmark Homes (Federick Harris), Trendmaker Homes, Ashton Woods Homes, David Weekley, Perry Homes. I know Federek Harris and David Weekley do some custom jobs so you may want to begin with them.
