Award-winning Local Firm Begins Work on West Byers Project

Get a sneak peek at the LEED residences that will replace dilapidated triplexes off of Camp Bowie.

The West Byers area will get a facelift later this year when locally owned Ferrier Custom Homes completes three LEED-H Platinum homes side by side at 5149 Byers Ave. (previously 5133 Byers Ave.). Regularly weaving efficiency and sustainability into each project, the company built the first LEED-H Platinum home in Texas and the third in the U.S. The Byers Avenue houses will replace two dilapidated triplexes (one triplex was demolished in April) on the property at the southwest intersection of Merrick Street and Byers Avenue. About 60 percent of the way through completion on the first home, construction will begin on the second, and so on with the third home. Donald and Donella Ware are the property owners. They plan to reside in one home and place the other two on the market.
