Our 50th year in business was quite a success! Here, we wrap up some of our favorite highlights:
This year was a huge year for Deltec: we celebrated our 50th anniversary! Since 1968, we’ve been committed to innovation, quality & the environment. To commemorate, we unveiled a new logo and had a party benefiting Habitat for Humanity at our model homes in Mars Hill back in October. Take a look at our history in our timeline, 50 Years of Innovation.
New Model Home
Deltec takes Texas! As an international company, we know it can be tough for some people to visit our two model homes here in Western North Carolina. Therefore, we set a goal in late 2017 to build a new model home outside of Asheville—way outside of Asheville: Rockport, Texas. The hurricane resistant 1500 model from our 360° Collection features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and 1496 square feet. The home is nearly complete & almost ready for tours! Drive by to see it for yourself: 1517 S. Magnolia Street, Rockport, TX 78382.
Deltec Homes Superlatives
In January 2018, a 7118 square-foot home from our 360° Collection was completed in nearby Tennessee. After relocating from Washington DC, Mark and Nancy knew exactly what they wanted and what they didn’t in their new home. Once they started searching, it was clear that an existing home wouldn’t fit the bill. “Once we found land that offered panoramic views of the mountains of East TN, we knew a Deltec home was right for us.” They built a 2500 model with a 24′ x 44′ crescent wing on a finished basement. We featured the home on our blog earlier this year. Read more about it here.
One of the perks of our 360° Collection is the variety of sizes you can build. A single structure can range anywhere from 328 – 2500 square feet. With multi-story, wing and connect options, that square footage can increase drastically. For this reason, you’ll often hear us refer to these as “building blocks“. In this case though, homeowner Nancy kept it simple with a single 328 square foot home right here in Asheville, NC. Built by Deltec Building Company, the tiny home features an open floor plan, which makes it feel much more spacious.
We ship homes all over the world. As you may have seen in other posts, that includes places like Okinawa, Japan and Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia! In 2018, a 1000 model connected to an 800 model and a 500 model (a “tri-connect”, if you will) made the 2084 mile hike to the country of Grenada.
Most Energy Efficient
Located here in Asheville, Deltec Building Company built its first certified Zero Energy Ready Home. According to the website, DOE Zero Energy Ready Homes are verified by a qualified third-party and are at least 40%-50% more energy efficient than a typical new home. This Ridgeline model features passive solar design, 18 solar panels, our Energy Wall and a projected HERS score of <10. Stay tuned for more about this home later this year!
