Austin Real Estate: A new building material emerges

Austin Real Estate: Greenstar Blox are a new product that is developed in Mason, TX. They are similar in the way the can be used to cinder blocks. They are different because they are produced with 65% recycled paper and lottery tickets. The new blox are twice as strong as cinder blocks and 1/3 the weight. The blox are also fire, water, termite, mold and bullet proof. They are also an extremly efficient product working as added insulation in buildings providing drastically lower utility bills. What does this have to do with Austin Real Estate? Everything. As new products are developed, the way homes are built have the possibility of changing dramatically. As the focus of companies shifts to more energy efficient projects and procedures we should see a bunch of new materials like this emerge. Are you interested in buying an energy efficient home? Give me a call.

  1. Interesting - this new green building product helps during build and maintenance. $140 electricity bill for a 3200 sqft home in Texas? That's pretty impressive!
