When a building project fits your business model and calls to your heart, how can you say no? That’s why Jeff Newton, owner of Newton Custom Homes & Realty, raised his hand to participate in the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway—and why this high-end custom home in Charlotte, NC, is his eighth with the organization.

Large projects can come with major setbacks that mean big hits to timelines, budgets, and ROI. Facing delays and product availability issues on their multifamily Big Haus project, Mark Stewart, owner of Stewart Development and Construction, turned to his reps at Georgia-Pacific. They recommended ForceField® Weather Barrier System for sloped roofs and walls. Learn how this integrated WRB system was available when and where the Stewart team needed it, got them dried-in quickly, and helped get the project back on track and ahead of schedule.
Residential (Custom Home)
Ellijay, GA (North Georgia Mountains)
5/8” DensElement® Sheathing: 4,256 sq. ft. / 133 sheets 4’ x 8’
7/16” ForceField® Panels: 7,360 sq. ft. / 230 sheets 4’ x 8’
A modern, custom home nestled in the mountains of northern Georgia sounds like a majestic escape. But Emmy Award-winning host, designer, and executive producer Chip Wade realized that building at a 3,000-foot elevation would come with its share of challenges. Facing high winds, snow, and heavy rain, this home would need something stronger than house wrap. That’s why architect and general contractor Chip chose ForceField® Weather Barrier System and ForceField® Premium Tape, a high-performance integrated WRB/AB for sloped roofs that could stand strong against the elements.
Grand Lake - near Tulsa, OK
10.24 MSF of ForceField® Panels
When a property is situated on a hillside right along the lake, it’s important to shield its exterior so unwanted air and water stay out of the structure. So, when a team was building a vacation home on Grand Lake in Northeast Oklahoma, they made sure to choose materials that would not only streamline the sheathing process, but also stand strong against the elements. The project lead and owner of the vacation home had partnered with Georgia-Pacific in the past and had a great experience with supply, communication and field support, which made choosing ForceField® Weather Barrier System an easy decision.

Developers who rely on merely comparing upfront material costs when determining budget savings can easily miss the big picture—leading to a less-than-successful result once the property is developed. To determine true cost savings, it’s important to evaluate holistically: looking for savings everywhere from materials to labor to schedules and more. For the team developing Liberty Creek Village, a multi-family apartment community, one of the greatest sources of overall budget savings came from a material with a higher initial price point that reaped bigger time and labor savings overall.
The first plan isn’t always the best. That’s what the development team behind the new Sur Club multifamily project has come to know. But with some foresight, a little extra research, and willingness to improve, you can make the best plan into a completed success. This was the case when the contracting team at Capstone Building Corporation decided to substitute for a better, integrated sheathing with a water resistive barrier and air barrier on a luxury multifamily job and wound up saving a lot of time and budget in the process.
