Article Link: Fast Company
Now this is an old article, from 1996, about a “lean” home builder in Austin TX. Doyle Wilson homes was also featured prominently in the book Lean Thinking.
I can’t figure out what happened to the company though. Their old website is now a generic home buying ads page (the web address was purchased in 2002 by some Florida company).
If anyone else cares to do some Google research and can find out if Doyle Wilson was absorbed and bought by another home builder, let us know by clicking Comments or emailing me (see link on the right side of the page).
