We Build High-Performance Homes

We believe we have a responsibility to our buyers, our communities and the planet. Using nationally recognized best practices for green building and energy conservation, you will save money and save the planet.  Our new construction homes are built with state-of-the-art products, techniques, and materials that must meet the latest building codes. This means they are far more energy efficient than older properties. Also, you’ll have peace of mind  knowing all products (and the home itself) are covered by a warranty, one year on systems and materials and ten years for the structure.

What is the HERS Index

Energy Saving

+ Smart thermostats reduce energy usage and save an average of 10 to 15 percent on heating/cooling bills.

+ Energy Star Certified dual pane, low-emission windows reduce overall energy usage by maintaining indoor temperatures through a range of climates.

+ Electric water heaters are much more efficient than gas. When gas water heaters vent, energy is lost. The venting does not occur in electric heaters, therefor energy is saved.
