Local homebuilder celebrates milestone by featuring the home in Parade of Homes

From press release


ASHEVILLE, NC – Deltec Homes, the industry leader in prefabricated energy efficient homes, has begun construction on their 5,000th home since the company started in 1968. The home will be available to tour in the 2014 Parade of Homes.
When Theresa and Tom Whetstine decided to build a Deltec, they didn’t realize their home, which shipped on June 16, would mark a major milestone for the company.

“Finding out that our future home was the 5,000th Deltec home made us even more excited,” said Theresa.
The couple was intrigued by the unusual round shape of Deltec’s homes, but the ability to turn key it with Deltec Building Company, an option offered to those building in Western North Carolina, was the ultimate selling point.

“It’s been very helpful having them guide us in choices concerning the construction inside and out,” she said.

As the housing market continues to recover after a detrimental crash in 2007, Deltec is confident that hitting this milestone is an indication of what’s to come.

“Just a few years ago many companies in this industry were shutting down,” said Steve Linton, president of Deltec. “Having survived that and now celebrating our 5,000th home makes us very proud. It’s a great sign of how the market is improving.”
Located in Saluda, about 30 miles from Deltec headquarters, the 1,651-square-foot home
is Green Built North Carolina Certified and will be showcased in the Parade of Homes on Oct. 11-12, 18-19.
