'Bone' housing part of $400 million Ontario subdivision


A Bone Structure house: steel framed and built Net-Zero-Ready. Bone Structures


Steel home builder Bone Structure has inked an agreement with Toronto-based Skyline Investments Inc. to complete 27 new detached houses in Deerhurst Sanctuary, a Skyline subdivision in Muskoka, Ontario.
Bone Structures, founded in Laval, Quebec in 2005,  uses a patented light steel construction system inspired by the aerospace industry.  The company also builds to Net Zero Ready energy standards, using what it calls a “a soya based polyurethane thermal envelope”  that it claims could save homeowners up to 90 per cent on energy costs for heating and cooling.
A big advantage for the developer could be speed and ease of construction. The Bone homes come to a site just in time for assembly, right down to the screws.
“A trained crew can assemble up to 1,000 square feet. of insulated structure per
day, everyday,” Bone claims.
At the Deerhurst Sanctuary site  – a 138-acre, five-year, $400 million development project –  Skyline is selling building lots starting around $200,000 for 1.2-acre to 4.8-acre parcels that include Bone’s architectural design service.
