The houses they plan to offer are of prefabricated, modular steel construction. "It is a new concept in building, which mil provide for quick erection, low inilial cost and low maintenance c o s t s , " he said. "And because of the fire-proof construction, insurance rates also will be low." The three-bedroom homes were developed by Trinity Scientific Leasing, Inc., of Dallas. The method of construction already has been approved by tlie F1IA. "There is nothing fancy about these homes," said Clem Galan, a retired contractor who is wee president of Component Homes. Exteriors arc finished in baked-on enamel, and interiors are of \vood paneling, rather than sheet rock, to reduce upkeep. "Maintenance is a difficult thing for the needy family," Galan pointed out. Tiiis is why Woo became interested in the project, lie is owner of Foon's Super Market, and this is his first venture into the construction business, he said. "We saw a need for this type of house for the needy--something that will not deteriorate after four or five years." But the project is a two-pronged effort, Galan stressed. "We hope to provide more than 1M Jobs within six months aa well as the much-needed houses." The group presently is seeking nonprofit sponsors of the housing under the FHA 235 program, and has invited many, such as Model Cities, Urban Renewal, and the City Council, to see their model home, now being constructed at 651 Old Highway 90 West. "For those who cannot now qualify for the FHA 233 program because of the h'gh price of most homes covered by the program, sve are trying to get the coat A each unit under $10,000," Woo said.
