Design

The home must suit the needs of the homeowners, while also meeting environmental and energy efficiency concerns. We implement the following design features in our homes:

Passive Solar Gain: One of the most effective ways to heat your home is through direct sunlight. By positioning windows in certain areas, adding overhangs and increasing thermal mass, you can save hundreds of dollars a year in heating costs.

Flex Home Design: A flex home allow owners to change their home as their needs change. A young couple may design a den that can become a child’s bedroom. Hallways and doors can be made wider for a future wheelchair. Our home can grow with you.

Daylighting: You can reduce energy costs by utilizing natural light to brighten your home. Windows are positioned to allow maximum light and minimal heat loss. We can even illuminate enclosed areas, like closets and pantries, with Sun Tunnels.
