ENERGY EFFICIENCY: Home is engineered to be up to 50% more energy efficient than the average home built to code.

• Insulation- Greatly upgraded insulation package includes sprayed polyurethane foam in ceilings, headers, and box sills. Also, blown in cellulose wall insulation.
• Thermal Envelope- Advanced sealing package includes seal at top and bottom exterior wall plates and corners, sealed mechanical attic and crawl space penetrations, seal around windows and doors.
• Insulated Concrete Forms- Basement foundation walls constructed of insulated concrete forms for added R value and noise insulation.
• Windows- Low-E, double-paned, U value .35 windows through-out home.
• Super Efficient In-Floor Heating System- Lochinvar 93% efficient Energy Star rated condensing boiler supplies floor heat throughout home. “Smart Control” maximizes boiler performance and economy.
• Super Efficient Tankless Water Heater- Rinnai continuum hot water system including a recirculation system delivers hot water on demand, eliminating the need and expense of continuously heating a tank of water. Saves energy costs and never run out of hot water!
• Whole House Fan- Insulated whole house fan placed in upstairs ceiling draws cooler air from lower floor windows, thereby pushing the hot air from the house and expelling through the attic vents.

Health and Safety / Durability:

• Indoor Air Quality- Heat Recovery Ventilator utilizes outgoing warm “stale” air to heat incoming fresh air. This system circulates fresh air throughout the home on a regular basis without adding to your heating bill.
Building scientists say “build it tight, and then vent it right.”
We have done both.
• Custom Metal Roof - Long life of maintenance free performance.
• Stucco and Stone Exterior- Very low maintenance exterior.
• Engineered Wood Decking - More low maintenance material eliminates the need for regular decking repair and replacement.
