ALTERNATIVE BUILDING METHODS
You can build a stronger, safer new home using Alternative Construction Methods such as Insulated Concrete Forms (ICFs), Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs), or Panelized Walls. We've worked with leading product suppliers to adapt many of our home plans to take advantage of the unique benefits these products offer.
LIVABILITY AT A GLANCE®
Livability at a Glance® - Rather than starting with the elevation when looking at a house plan, women often begin by looking at floor plans. Which begged the question, “How do women look at home plans?” As we delved into this topic, we learned women look at a home plan to determine “how the home lives.” From this discovery, Livabilty at a Glance® was born.
YOUR NEW HOME PERSONALITY
Finally About Me® - Your personality influences your perception of a home. What is your new home personality? What’s amazing is just how much of our core personality shows up in our homes! Once you’ve identified your strongest personality type, you, your builder, or your remodeling contractor can focus on things that will likely be very meaningful to you and avoid wasting time with things that probably aren’t very important.
It’s fun…and more than a little revealing into why you like what you like! It’s amazing just how much of your core personality is reflected in our home plans!
