RICHARDSON, TX – Covid-19 has transformed how we live and work. Extended families live under one roof to save on expenses, and technology allows more people to work from home than ever before. That’s why so many people are looking to add thoughtfully planned, multi-use spaces to their homes.
Eric Benavides founded Backyard Workroom, LLC to meet the demands for homeowners needing more privacy and space at a price they could afford. Initially, he manufactured the prefab buildings with traditional building materials. However, always on the lookout for sustainable products, he turned to a new earth-friendly structural insulated panels manufactured by Horton World Solutions (HWS) to build the prefab modular buildings.
Terry Horton and Horton World Solutions
A dedicated leader for positive change, Terry Horton was involved in the early development stages of D.R. Horton Homes. He spearheads HWS to advance a better quality of life through sustainable housing. After traveling on several mission trips, Horton wanted to provide affordable housing to third-world countries. But first, he had to prove its value by rolling it out in the U.S.
“To be sovereign beings, we must act responsibly and reduce our carbon footprint,” he declared. HWS’s mission is to create environmentally sustainable and affordable products to make housing more accessible to all. Horton resolved that “Our current building systems are unsustainable,” and that, “with the addition of 1.2 billion housing units by the year 2045, we’ve got to improve the way we build houses.”
Changing the Approach to Home Building
Horton set out to design a sustainable material for prefab construction with Dupont Labs. “The U.S. has made great strides in technology, health, and other areas, but sticks and bricks building has stayed the same for 150 years,” he pointed out. “We have to think of better building methods and materials that are better for the environment.”
Horton spent seven years engineering and refining a monolithic composite system. Backyard Workroom is the first company to agree to exclusively use his product to build their core product, 10×10 and 10×15 backyard workrooms, and also built a tiny house with the product.
The Monolithic Composite System
Constructed with an extruded polystyrene core and laminate veneer, the patent-pending 4-inch thick monolithic composite panels are lighter and more durable than traditional studs and sheetrock. The monolithic composite system rated at R-34 to R-60 form the easy to assemble walls and ceiling & roof system.
The panels, windows, and door openings are precision cut with high-pressure water jets and delivered to Backyard Workroom’s factory in Richardson, Texas. There, the engineered buildings are factory finished with pre-wired electrical, doors, windows and trim, interior and exterior paint, and a spray-on weatherproof roof coating. Four people can assemble the Backyard Workroom from start to finish in less than half a day.
Good Business Practices Start with Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG)
Like Horton, Benavides recognizes the economic and environmental impact solved by Backyard Workroom.
The criteria set forth by ESG ratings help determine a company’s ethics as a future performance indicator. Backyard Workroom and HWS products rate highly in all three and increase the quality of life by:
- Designing products with processes that minimize waste and reduce costs, while protecting our natural resources
- Enabling people to create thoughtful spaces that have a positive impact on society
- Building with products and technologies to advance a more sustainable future and better quality of life
“With Eric’s background in home building and his know-how in sales and marketing, we felt Backyard Workroom was the perfect fit for this product,” stated Horton.
Benavides offers the Backyard Workroom brand as a unique franchise opportunity so people can market and sell his product all over the U.S. “Backyard Workroom is taking a step in the right direction by using this quality building material that will improve and forever change the future of building construction, and we are proud to bring this innovative product to the market,” said Benavides.
The reasons for buying a Backyard Workroom vary, but the trend is clear: People are more socially conscious and willing to invest in more efficient ways to improve their property and help the environment. Modular workrooms help people do their part by offering a sustainable, durable, factory-made product with a low impact on the environment.
