Title: Steel homes.. 2 3 plus levels.. with a sundeck roof

I was chatting with a guy that built himself a 3 floor steel home with a sunroof on top (ref: ). I liked information I heard about using steel instead of wood to build a structure. I am wondering what you guys think about living and working in a home that is build of steel and concrete.

These are just some ideas about materials to use on a multi-unit structure. One of the things I liked about using metal, is it allows for greater interior square footage than wood type framed structures. This can be of value when tryig to squeeze out as many square feet as possible on expensive urban properties. Also, this allows for more available space outside than a standard wooden structure. And It appears that it is stronger and more resistance to weather, mold, termites, fire, etc. And It appear s that these structures can go higher than wooden structures. So it may be possible to squeeze in additional footage in additional floors.
