You don't need to sacrifice style to be green, and this home the embodiment of that sentiment. This custom home is both luxurious and energy efficient. From the gourmet kitchen and state-of-the-art appliances to the distributed audio visual system, this 6 BR/6.5 Bath home has every convenience while possessing the look and feel of a house that has been around for a generation. Other features include 5 stone fireplaces, a 3 story floating staircase, custom wide plank pine floors and unique tile in every bathroom.
The home’s many high performance features will insure that its operating costs are minimal. Leading the list is the geothermal system with radiant floor heat and a “desuperheater” that uses excess heat to efficiently provide hot water. Other features include a radiant barrier, DOW structural insulated sheathing, closed cell spray foam and cellulose insulation combine to produce energy efficiency and cost savings beyond almost all existing buildings.
When complete next month, this home is expected to be one of the first in the area to be certified GOLD under the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) National Green Building Standard. At West Builds, we certify every home we build which allows us to ‘quantify quality’ and gives our customers the tools they need to measure our work. We are confident our houses will outperform others in the area.
West Builds' motto is ‘Live in High Performance.’ To us, green building begins with energy and resource efficiency. When we minimize the resources it takes to build a house, as well as the resources the house consumes over its lifetime, we have done our job of ‘building green’.
