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! (more…)

CandysDirt.com and Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove will host a panel discussion on innovation and disruption in the home building industry on March 26.

We talk a lot about disruption and innovation here at CandysDirt.com, largely in the realm of the real estate business. But we also know that the same dynamic takes place in the building and design world as well. Who are the disruptors and innovators in the building world? How do you build change into your business plan? What has changed in the past five years when it comes to energy efficiency and even what customers desire?

We’ll delve into all that and more in a forward-looking panel with some phenomenal builder experts on March 26, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The folks at Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Cove partnered with CandysDirt to talk about innovation, as well as how their showroom can be an asset for builders, realtors, and designers who want to train staff about the latest appliances, or help clients visualize what their dream kitchen looks like.
