VISTA, Calif., May 2, 2014

VISTA, Calif., May 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Eco Building Products, Inc. (OTCBB:
ECOB) announced today that the Wells Eason development in West Lancaster,
California is now ready to proceed with construction of two more model homes
for the Desert Crest Project located in West Lancaster, CA. The project is
currently underway with concrete ready for framing material that ECOB will
deliver on Monday May 5^th, 2014 with forty-one (41) additional production
units to follow depending on current sales.

This area in the High Desert referred to as "The Antelope Valley" was once a
hot spot for builder's in the big market during 2005. When we first selected
this area to build, Lancaster was ranked the fastest growing city in the U.S.
This builder initially promoted this certified GREEN development's use of
solar panels and the integration of other technically advanced building
materials. Now taking on a more defensive posture, this builder is now
highlighting Eco Red Shield^TM protected Lumber & ECOB Trusses, providing this
development with defense against potential floods and fire storms in the

Lancaster was once the epicenter of the "Power House Fire" that burned
thousands of acres during a Santa Ana wind storm fueled by extreme heat,
similar to the weather in Southern California today where over 1000 acres are
currently burning. Infamous for fanning regional wildfires in Southern
California, the Santa Ana Winds have come early this year. In past years,
billions of dollars of damage have been incurred as a result of these
destructive wildfires, most of which represent consumed housing stock in the
region. This Lancaster, California housing development now under construction
has been specified with ECOB's Red Shield protected lumber, representing this
developer's commitment at ensuring the safety of his customers and their homes
being developed.

This Lancaster area just like San Diego has grown back from fires a few years
ago, and potential they will burn in the future, similar to a high likelihood
that the North East will flood again. We have watched American wood-framed
buildings come under attack all around this country, and now we are starting
to get calls from Insurance Companies asking questions about our product line.
Maybe one day production builders will realize that building defensive may be
better than the "green" angle they have all used, just like this Desert Crest
Builder in their promotion. Two years ago in Colorado, fire hit that region
hard, and then last year flooding made national headline while we watched some
of these houses being rebuilt as if Mother Nature wasn't going to strike
again. Events like the Northridge earthquake in CA supported the fact that the
Engineering Community raised the bar on lateral strength with hardware that
birthed products like, Simpson Strong Walls, and now we are seeing that these
storms that are delivering more flooding than ever before, coupled with high
winds. Maybe it's time to raise the bar on protecting wood fiber strength.
Whether or not recent extreme weather is tied to climate change, precautionary
measures put into place today are certain to provide a level of protection for
these homes against the inevitable. In addition to ECOB's offering of Eco Red
Shield, the Company also carries a variety of defensive products that provide
protection against flooding, similar to what we saw this past week in New

California Wildfire near Rancho Cucamonga, CA:

"At ECOB, we recognize the need to continue the lead on educating the
specifying community on protecting the wood fiber strength values and the
people that live in wood-framed structures. We are hoping that during our
NY/NJ Home Tour in late May we get a good response because we know when they
walk the two homes we are building, they will see this is the way of the
future for everywhere in the US. Let's face it whether your building in
Lancaster or New Jersey raw lumber is now code minimum in any area that has
been affected by any weather related storm. As May shows up and over 1000
acres are on fire our Lumber Trucks rolling north towards Lancaster and south
towards San Diego delivering Red Shield Lumber and Trusses while crews are
battling rain trenching footings in Breezy Point and coating lumber in
Augusta, GA and in all regions the weather is breaking records proving the
need to embrace change," says Steve Conboy, President/CEO, Eco Building
