Killeen, Harker Heights and Nolanville experienced at least 15 new home starts last week adding about $2.5 million in property values between the cities.

Killeen issued 10 construction permits for new single-family homes Jan. 17-23, according to a report.

Fort Worth-based DR Horton, and Killeen-based Ashford Homes and All Star Homes are the contractors for the future Killeen residences going in on Mustang Creek Road, Lorne Drive, Tara Drive, Little Dipper Drive and Libra Drive.

Construction costs range from $101,000 to $196,000 per home, with a projected combined cost of about $1,384,709.

Contractors in Harker Heights started four new homes on Hopi Trail, Bristle Cone Drive, Catkins Lane and Boxwood Drive, a city report stated. Builders include Harker Heights-based Carothers Homes, Killeen-based M.A. Hoard Construction and Austin-based Blackmon Mooring.

Construction costs range from $171,000 to $263,000 with a projected combined cost of about $918,000.

Heights also issued five new single-family home permits Jan. 13-17, which were not included on the latest city report because of the holiday Jan. 20.

DR Horton, Centex Homes of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., and Park Quality Homes of Killeen received permits for homes going in on Broken Arrow Drive, Rocky Ridge Trail, Ridgewood Court, Olive Lane and Province Point.

The city of Nolanville issued one construction permit last week to Guillermo Avalos to build a home on Gehler Circle, a report stated. The construction cost was valued at $195,000.

Between Jan. 13 and Jan. 17, the city issued a construction permit to Belton-based Concept Homes for a single-family residence on Stone Crest Drive.

Construction costs of the home are $350,000.

Killeen issued one commercial remodel permit to Austin-based Epic Communications to rebuild a facility at 3830 E. Stagecoach Road.

The project was estimated at $8,000.

Information about permits issued by the city of Copperas Cove was not available Monday.
