ECO-DESIGN

  • preservation of existing trees and creek
  • landscaped yards and open spaces with native grasses and trees
  • reduced pavement to allow for more green space
  • low energy consumption through efficient compact construction
  • homes are designed with vegetated roofs (optional) to improve insulation and reduce water run off
  • clean design reduces material consumption
  • constructed with sustainable materials: bamboo wood floors, sleek sustainable countertops, compact fluorescent lightbulbs, optional radiant floor heating, optional photovoltaic solar panels to generate electricity.

LOW EMISSION GLASS

Low-E glass is a specialized glass that is designed with the purpose of enabling the sun’s short wave energy to enter a space and prevent conditioned air from leaving. In the winter months, low-E glass allows heat that is generated internally to be reflected back into the space while reducing condensation on the glass. In the summer this process occurs in reverse, denying the heat that radiates from the exterior, significantly reducing the homeowner’s utility bills.

TREX DECKING

Trex decking is made of a unique combination of recycled plastic grocery bags and waste wood, making it maintenance free and environmentally friendly.

RADIANT HEAT FLOORING

Along with the comfort of walking on warm floors, this system radiates heat from the floor resulting in evenly heated rooms and a reduction in energy consumption. As a result, the thermostat can be two-four degrees lower reducing energy costs by up to 40%.

PHOTOVOLTAIC CELLS

This source of electricity is an investment that results in much lower electricity bills. With recent technological advancements, the photovoltaic system will pay for itself in as little as seven to 10 years.
