Superior Concrete Tiny Houses gives new meaning to living large in a small, energy-efficient, steel-reinforced footprint.

Todd Sternfeld, CEO of Superior Concrete Tiny Houses, Debuts The Texas Two-Step Concrete Tiny Home

EULESS, Texas (Oct. 27, 2017) – Superior Concrete Tiny Houses and its affiliate company Superior Concrete Products debut another new innovative home – The Texas Two-Step during the 2017 National Tiny House & Simple Living Jamboree in Arlington, Texas. The Jamboree begins at 3 p.m. today, Friday, Oct. 27 and lasts until 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 29, and will prominently feature the Texas Two-Step, a relocatable park model tiny house which has exterior walls made entirely out of precast concrete. Superior Concrete Tiny Houses and Superior Concrete Products are owned and operated by CEO Todd Sternfeld, a construction company owner, entrepreneur, land developer, tiny house dealer and custom builder based in Texas.

Todd Sternfeld, CEO of Superior Concrete Tiny Houses — The Original Concrete Tiny House Co. Debuts “The Texas Two-Step at the 2017 National Tiny House and Simple Living Jamboree.

“Few people realize how visually appealing a concrete house can be. Not to mention the fact that concrete is maintenance free, and has better insulation properties than wood and other building materials,” said Todd Sternfeld, CEO of Superior Concrete Tiny Houses and Superior Concrete Products, a business he has owned and operated for more than 30 years. “Superior Concrete Tiny Houses, known as The Original Concrete Tiny House Co., sells tiny homes with maintenance-free exteriors made of high-grade steel and fiber reinforced 5,000 psi precast concrete panels, which are held in place by galvanized metal studs and framing. Our precast panels are designed to duplicate the natural look and appeal of wood, brick, stucco or stone, and they are designed to outlast any other conventional building material in the market. In fact, The Texas Two-Step has been built specifically to showcase our expertise in creating a beautiful, carefree home with minimum maintenance.”

Precast concrete made by Superior Concrete is attractive and realistic in appearance. To build the Texas Two-Step, the company’s construction team used a blend of warm wood-toned concrete timber siding which gives a modern twist on a rustic Hill Country theme making the exterior of the Texas Two-Step inviting, durable and completely maintenance free. Laminate products and engineered stone were also used in the home’s interior to ensure that this tiny house is as care-free as possible. A park model tiny home, The Texas Two-Step includes all the luxurious amenities and modern conveniences found in a full-size home.

The Texas-Two Step is secured on a custom steel frame trailer so it can be relocated to a home site, lake lot, tiny home village or community or other suitable location. With 225-square- feet of well-designed living space, this home is built to be comfortable and functional while requiring little to no maintenance inside and out. Featuring a front and a back door on opposite sides of the unit, this tiny home has ample room for two or more occupants, and a large loft has been added for sleeping and extra storage. For added living space, The Two-Step also has a large front porch which provides room for entertaining outdoors.

Engineered stone made by Neolith is used for the kitchen countertop, and on the floor, walls and ceiling of the bathroom. A waterproof, sound reduction flooring is used in the great room, hall and bedroom areas to ensure that spills, scrapes, scratches and muddy feet won’t mar the surface of the floor. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, and even has a dishwasher for those who want to sanitize their dishes, pots and pans. A utility area has a full-size stackable washer and dryer, and the living room has sofa that disappears underneath a bed that folds down for the wall.

“This tiny house has everything a tiny home enthusiast could want in a small dwelling or cabin. It is stable, safe and secure, plus as a park model, it can be hooked up to conventional utilities for city dwellers or use gray and black water holding tanks should a homeowner want to live in a more remote area,” Sternfeld said. “Our unique features and design make our homes extremely durable, and we can say without reservation that a Superior Concrete Tiny House will outlast most any other tiny home in the market today.”

In addition to showcasing The Texas Two-Step, Sternfeld will make a presentation discussing “Alternative Building Materials for Tiny Houses, Why it Matters, and Why You Should Care” starting at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28, 2017. Taking place on the Village Stage, Sternfeld will point out the pros and cons of various traditional building techniques, and discuss some advanced construction products that have recently hit the market, in addition to talking about new uses for products such as concrete.

Superior Concrete Tiny Houses Launches Precast Concrete Tiny Homes During 2016 Tiny House Jamboree in Colorado Springs

Todd Sternfeld Debuts the Colorado Cool – a Towable Tiny Home Designed for Those Who Like the Permanence of a Tiny Home with Ease of Relocation

EULESS, TexasAugust 5, 2016 – When Todd Sternfeld, CEO and owner of Superior Concrete Products makes up his mind to pursue a goal, nothing stops him.

Todd Sternfeld, CEO of Superior Concrete Tiny Houses, puts the Finishing Touches on the Colorado Cool, the nation’s first towable precast concrete tiny house.

And, so it is with his new company – Superior Concrete Tiny Houses (SCTH), which started earlier this year. Inspired by Superior Concrete Products, the well-known producer of decorative precast concrete fence and retaining wall products, SCTH will focus on building tiny homes and other modular buildings and structures.

AN ORIGINAL IDEA – THE RANCHETTE

The father of four daughters, Sternfeld realized that millennials and others are purchasing tiny houses in increasing numbers, and with thirty years of experience in modular prefab construction, he knew his modular steel-reinforced precast concrete fence panels were the perfect material to use in the building of tiny homes.

Clad in a Superior Brick™, the company’s maintenance-free precast concrete panels, the first tiny home SCTH built was a 600-square-foot two-bedroom rustic ranch style house, dubbed the Cleburne Ranchette™. Filled with deluxe amenities such as granite countertops, full-size stainless steel appliances, and a full-size bathroom, the Ranchette epitomizes the look and feel of well-appointed Western-themed home, perfect for singles, young couples, empty nesters or people looking for a weekend retreat in the country. In fact, the company’s craftsmanship and design expertise, was recently recognized by the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA). The organization named Superior Concrete Products the 2016 first place winner of the Creative Use of Precast Concrete (CUP Award) in the Above Ground Category for the Ranchette in March 2016.

“People of all ages love tiny houses,” said Sternfeld. “They provide an attractive and affordable solution for those who want to own a home, but don’t want to go obligate themselves to a big mortgage. And, let’s face it, no one likes to spend good money on something that depreciates and deteriorates within a few short years.”

“When manufactured correctly, precast concrete is an extremely attractive and versatile product. Crafted to look like wood, stucco, brick or stone, the Superior Concrete team infuses tinted pigments during the production process, so there is no need to paint or stain the outside walls of one of our precast tiny homes – ever, unless you elect to change the color. Better yet, with steel reinforced concrete, Superior Concrete Tiny Houses are designed to be safe and strong, outlasting any stick-built home on the market,” he added.

THE CHISHOLM TRAIL CABIN

Since the completion of the Ranchette, the Superior team has been moving fast, building one home after another. While the Ranchette was constructed on an engineered concrete foundation, the second tiny home – the Chisholm Trail Cabin is a convertible model that was built on a strong steel frame, giving this tiny home ease of portability. With an exterior structure made of Superior Wood™, a precast concrete product that duplicates the look of rough-cut cedar siding, the 375-square-feet, two-bedroom cabin was designed as a park model. This design enables tiny house enthusiasts to put wheels on the axles and move their tiny home to a new location, if they desire. The Chisholm Trail can also be constructed on a fixed concrete foundation should the owner prefer to establish permanent residence on a piece of land.

THE COLORADO COOL DEBUT

The newest home in the SCTH line-up is the 200-square-foot, one-bedroom Colorado Cool. Built on a rugged goose-neck trailer, “The Cool” gives tiny home enthusiasts the option of parking this residence permanently, or hooking it up to a truck for travel. By their nature, tiny homes are not meant to be travel trailers. However, some tiny home enthusiasts enjoy the freedom of the road, so the Colorado Cool gives these free spirits the flexibility of a permanently parked home, or the ability to take their home with them should they decide to move.

“Colorado Cool is unique,” said Sternfeld. “We know of no other tiny home builder who has created a home like this one. This structure of this tiny home is maintenance-free Superior Brick™, and we’ve put every luxury we could incorporate into 200-square-feet of living space. Not only is this home energy efficient, but it is decorated in a sophisticated and care-free industrial style. We used cool muted tones of soft white, gray and blue combined with stainless steel appliances and textured metal cabinetry throughout the home to give a restful, but edgy contemporary feel.”

“This tiny house also features wood laminate flooring, paneling, marble countertops, mosaic tile, a full-size shower with curved glass doors, a utility room with a Dometic washer/dryer combo unit, hidden storage under the stairs, even a cedar-lined closet in the Great Room. And, this unit even includes a 40-square-foot outdoor living space configured as a private deck marking the entrance leading up to the front door. Truly, this home has it all,” he added.

2016 TINY HOUSE JAMBOREE

The recently completed Colorado Cool will be debuted during the 2016 Tiny House Jamboree in Colorado Springs, Colorado which starts on Friday, Aug. 5. Lasting through Sunday, Aug. 7, the Second Annual Tiny House Jamboree is a gathering of like-minded tiny house devotees who want to learn the latest building innovations as well as view this year’s collection of tiny homes. The event drew more than 40,000 visitors in 2015, and this year the Jamboree is expected to attract an even larger crowd.

This year, the event will be held on the grounds of the United States Air Force Academy Campus, close to Falcon Stadium. The gates open at 9 a.m. and close each evening at 6:00 p.m.

An affiliate of Superior Concrete Products, a Texas-based manufacturer and nationwide installer of precast concrete fence and retaining wall products, Superior Concrete Tiny Houses launched these cutting edge new homes in January 2016 when Sternfeld and his team recycled some concrete panels to construct the company’s first tiny house. Created and built out of the company’s proprietary line of precast concrete fence panels, the Colorado Cool was built on the company’s property in Euless, Texas.

NPCA Names Superior Concrete First Place Winner of the 2016 Creative Use of Precast Concrete – Above Ground Award

March 8, 2016

newsrelease_awardTodd Sternfeld Honored for the Creation of the Tiny House Precast Ranchette

Oftentimes good things come in small sizes, and this is certainly true in the case of the precast Superior Ranchette™, a rustic tiny ranch house designed by Todd Sternfeld’s team at Superior Concrete Products. In recognition of the company’s hard work, the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA) has named Superior Concrete Products the 2016 first place winner of the Creative Use of Precast Concrete (CUP Award) in the Above Ground Category for the Superior Ranchette.

A Texas-based manufacturer and nationwide installer of precast concrete fence and retaining wall products, Superior Concrete Products created and built the innovative new home out of the company’s proprietary line of precast concrete fence panels and other products on the company’s property near the newly opened Chisolm Trail Parkway in Cleburne, Texas.

The CUP Award was presented during a special recognition luncheon at the 2016 National Precast Concrete Association tradeshow in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday, March 3rd, at 1 p.m. NPCA chairman Andy Weiser presented the award to the Superior Concrete Products CEO and founder Todd Sternfeld, and Raul Rodriguez, the company’s vice president of manufacturing.

As part of the largest trade show dedicated to the precast concrete industry in North America, CUP Awards have been highly coveted by industry professionals since the NCPA recognition program was started in 2004. After the awards committee evaluated the various entries, NPCA president Ty Gable said, “The Superior Concrete Products entry captures the imagination. The Ranchette very clearly shows the amazing versatility of precast concrete. The judges were impressed not only with the beauty of the structures, but also with the technical design and how the display demonstrates the ability of precast concrete to emulate the look of other materials.”

Using precast concrete molded to resemble brick and other traditional finishes, the Ranchette showcases the diversity among the product lines manufactured by Superior Concrete Products, while also demonstrating the adaptability and novel uses of concrete as a building material. “Building the Ranchette was a group effort,” said Sternfeld. “I’ve always believed that our products could be used in a variety of creative ways, and the CUP Award is proof of what happens when you combine a versatile product with the great people that work at Superior Concrete Products.”

A scalable and customizable prototype, the Superior Ranchette is a 600 square-foot ranch house that offers all the sophisticated features of a full-sized two-bedroom home – complete with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. “While we built the house in a rustic ranch style design, the home could be of any size or architectural finish,” said Sternfeld. “Our goal was to build the Ranchette to demonstrate the various looks and finishes of the modular precast concrete products that we manufacture. Using a green-build approach, we recycled surplus materials to showcase the versatility of our product line. We are deeply pleased to win this award, but also want to thank the members of our industry for taking notice of the work created by the Superior Concrete Products staff.”

The exterior of the Ranchette is composed of Superior Brick™ fence panels which has been hand-tinted to resemble the warm weathered look of aged masonry. The posts supporting the roof of the front porch are Superior Stone Columns™ designed to look remarkably like water carved river rocks. The home’s interior has utilized Superior Wood Plus™ and precast fence panels to accent the interior of the house.

Naturally, no ranch house would be complete without a fence, and the Ranchette has two. A six-foot tall Superior Cobblestone™ privacy fence duplicates the look of stacked stone, and is trimmed with the decorative Superior Lattice, a one-foot tall precast product that simulates the hand-crafted appearance of a wood trellis sitting atop the precast cobblestone. The privacy fence gives an attractive backdrop for the home’s patio – shielding the house from the late afternoon sun, while providing a welcome retreat for evening cookouts and friendly gatherings. Additional applications incorporated into the hardscape utilize Superior Rail™ and Superior Fence Caps for parking, patio and walkway paths.

The Superior Rail and post fence is strong and beautiful, tricking a trained eye with its deep rugged woodgrain molded texture. Superior 3 Rail™ (4’ high) was used to build a sturdy livestock corral, while other areas of the property used Superior 2 Rail™ (3’ high) as a decorative accent to frame the front of the Ranchette and walkway around the house. Other products were used as trim and for additional accent pieces, complimenting the exterior landscape design.

Strategically located in the middle of the country, Superior Concrete Products designs, engineers, manufactures, ships and installs products across the continent from the company’s NPCA certified plant in North Texas. “Since we are based in the Southwest, I naturally have a soft spot for cowboys and horses, so it just made sense to build a ranch with products made in our own factory,” said Sternfeld. “We are constantly working on product development and experimenting with new decorative finishes and textures. The Ranchette shows that precast concrete can be a sophisticated, affordable and versatile alternative to traditional building materials when you look at home design with a creative and imaginative eye. Plus, no other building material is as strong and durable as concrete.”


Superior Concrete Products Unveils New Concept in Home Design: The Precast Tiny House

February 9, 2016

Todd Sternfeld Uses Precast Concrete Fence Panels to Build a Rustic Mini-Ranchette
Superior Concrete Products, a Texas-based manufacturer and installer of precast concrete fence and retaining wall products, is unveiling an innovative new concept in home design during the 2016 World Ag Expo in Tulare, California. Called the Superior Ranchette™, the customizable home is a 600 square-foot tiny house constructed primarily of precast concrete fence panels molded to resemble brick and other traditional surfaces. When finished, the precast house offers the sophisticated features of a full-sized two-bedroom home, complete with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. And, being a ranch, the house comes with an oversized front porch and a livestock corral. Yet, despite all of these amenities, the Superior Ranchette has a surprisingly small footprint.

When it comes to home design, the Ranchette demonstrates the versatility of precast concrete as a building medium, while showcasing the depth and breadth of Superior Concrete Products line of merchandise. According to Sternfeld, all of the concrete used in the project was manufactured at the company’s NPCA certified plant in Texas.

“I’m a cowboy at heart, and the Ranchette is both rustic and comfortable — a perfect way to demonstrate the practicality of precast concrete panel construction,” said Sternfeld. “When it comes to home design, people forget that concrete can be a beautiful, affordable and versatile alternative to traditional building materials, plus it goes without saying that it is much more durable.”

According to Sternfeld, the company incorporated many of the company’s products into the design of the house and into the surrounding property. For instance, the posts supporting the roof on the front porch are Superior Stone Columns™. The outside of the house is made up of Superior Brick™ fence panels that have been hand-tinted to a warm weathered stone color. The home’s interior is made of a deep earth-toned Superior Stucco™ fence panels that resemble the smooth textured feel of hand-troweled adobe.

The outside of the Ranchette has a tall Superior Cobblestone™ privacy fence which looks like stacked stone trimmed in Superior Lattice surrounding the home’s patio for those afternoon cookouts. Superior Rail™, which looks remarkably like real wood rails, was used to build a corral for the livestock, and to create a rustic walkway. Other Superior products were used as trim and for other accent pieces to complete the Ranchette’s design.

To learn more about Superior Concrete Products, the precast concrete Ranchette, or any of the company’s other innovative line of fence and retaining wall merchandise, phone 817-277-9255 or visit www.ConcreteFence.com. Todd Sternfeld and members of the company’s sales team will be in the Superior Concrete Products’ booth #DX32 located in the Farm Credit Dairy Center Building of the 2016 World Ag Expo.
