You would never buy a car without knowing how many miles per gallon it gets. Why overlook cost efficiency on a lifetime investment? We thoughtfully engineer every component from foundation to the final shingle, proving that all new homes are not created equal. It actually makes a major difference for our homebuyers. All of our homes exceed the National Version 3.1 Energy STAR ratings. To better understand the ratings, consider that the U.S. Department of Energy states a typical resale home has a score of 130, and a standard new home has a score of 100. On average, our homes beat that by 40 points. To see how your floorplan stacks up against competition, view this PDF.
