SWEETWATER, NOLAN COUNTY - Custom Touch Village has broken ground on a 78-acre site, located on I-20 and Hwy. 70, which promises accommodation initially for at least 500 oil-field workers. The project is expected to be completed in September 2013.

On the site, 25 acres will be dedicated to single-family homes which could be permanent residential units, said Scott Larson, chief financial officer of Custom Touch Homes.

Another 25 acres, located in front of the highway, will be zoned for light commercial and will be marketed to gas stations and convenience stores, small grocery establishments and other small- to mid-sized shops.

The remaining acreage will have two-bedroom, stick-built units, as well as two-person, lodge-type housing facilities.

“The units are built to be energy-efficient and sound-resistant,” Larson said, adding that Custom Touch will target oil companies and oil-related services firms to lease the units. The company plans on extended services at the site, which may include meals and laundry services for the oil field workers.

Custom Touch also has property ready to be developed in Colorado City and Lorraine and is planning on acquiring more in the area.
