Solid Surface Countertops
Solid surface countertops survive the impact of nicks and cuts that can occur with daily wear and tear. They are remarkably durable. As a result, it’s a versatile material that is easy to live within both domestic and commercial environments. Their non-porous, seamless smooth surface does not allow liquids to penetrate, so bacteria and mold have nowhere to take root. The countertops are easy to clean and repairable with household cleaner.
Allura Cementitious Siding
Allura cementitious siding won't rot, warp, fade, burn or disappoint. Allura Fiber Cement products are made with an advanced formula that resists damage from moisture, rot, hail and termite attacks. Best of all, Allura products are suitable in even the most extreme hot and cold climates and are non-combustible.

Nest Programmable Thermostat
Google Nest is a smart thermostat that learns what temperatures you like, turns itself down when you're away and connects to your phone. It has a big, sharp display. And it's proven to help save energy. In independent studies, the Nest Thermostat saved an average of 10-12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills.
STANDARD CONSTRUCTION FEATURES
9’ Solid Concrete Steel Reinforced Basement Walls
Solid poured concrete walls with vertical and horizontal steel rebar give you an exponentially stronger and dryer basement than stacked hollow core block walls with mortar joints. Block walls are very porous and will allow water in over time, and as you get above an 11-course block wall, your walls are even further weakened.
2X6 Wall Construction
OSB vs. Foam Board
When comparing to foam board, OSB has much more structural integrity. When siding is installed on your home, we are putting it over wood as opposed to over foam board. The stronger wall minimizes wavy siding. When foam board is used, it’s easy to puncture or break during application and therefore leaves a lot of gaps and areas for air penetration.
R-21 Wall and R-49 Ceiling Insulation
The extra thickness you get with a 2×6 wall vs. a 2×4 wall provides for a higher R value. With today’s energy costs, the increased R factor will save you money and help provide a more comfortable home.
