TOM BEAN, Texas -- Tom Bean is welcoming a major development on the city's east side. 

Texas Platinum Homes noticed the job growth in the community and saw an opportunity. They broke ground on a three-housing phase project on Friday.

"I saw the potential along with my business partner," said Texas Platinum Homes owner Josh Holley. "From there, went to design, and once again the community support. We decided we would love to do this project."

This planned 26-home development is seen as a major success for the developers and the city.

"It's just another example of what's going on through Grayson County," said County Judge Bill Magers. "It's great for Tom Bean. It's new construction. It's revitalizing a nice neighborhood and going to continue the expansion. We're all excited and we're happy for Tom Bean."

Holley and Donny Lasko have been in the business for years creating affordable, quality homes.

"We started with a rental portfolio, and buying rentals and remodeling houses," Lasko said. Then it just started in the affordable housing program with my partner Josh Holley. Then it turned into just building and building more homes and affordable houses, and they were selling, and people liked the product."

The developers say six of the homes, averaging 1,600 square feet, will available to purchase by the end of this year.
