Mr. Sherman concluded, "Though the volatility in the commodity markets has subsided, current market conditions remain difficult and we expect this to persist into 2011. We remain committed to our proven strategy of conserving liquidity while monitoring, and adjusting as necessary, physical capacity and staffing levels. As expected, seasonal reductions in working capital helped reduce our use of cash during the quarter. We still believe our liquidity at year-end will range from $100-$110 million. While we do not expect 2011 to be a robust year of new home construction, we are hopeful we will see some improvement over 2010, and that 2011 will signal the beginning of a sustained recovery."Conference Call
