On the heels of a very popular panel discussion on disruption in the real estate world hosted by the Dallas Builders Association last month, CandysDirt found a way to continue that conversation thanks to our hosts at Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove Showroom in Dallas.

Panelists included Matt Mitchell with James Andrews Custom Homes, Chris Dauwe of Rosewood Custom Builders, Todd Handwerk of Calais Custom Homes, and Alan Hoffmann of Hoffmann Homes, all who brought their unique perspective to what has changed in homebuilding, how they’ve innovated, and what is coming down the pike.

Who told us about the home with the submarine in the garage and no kitchen? Who told us about the over the top outdoor kitchen they installed? Who said that building codes (which update every three years) are the ultimate disruptor in homebuilding because builders are forced to build stronger, more energy-efficient buildings constantly?

Did you miss the event and now you’re dying to know? We have the whole discussion on video!
