What are the standard finishes that come with this project?

Some highlights of standards in our single detached homes include:

  • Granite Countertops in the Kitchen
  • Hardwood in the Great Room
  • 9′ Ceilings on the Main Floor
  • Large Egress Basement Windows
  • Triple Pane Vinyl Windows
  • ERV & High-Efficiency Furnace
  • PLUS, Net Zero Ready

 

Net Zero Ready comes standard and is built into the price of your new home. These homes are optimized so that the home is capable of generating as much energy as an average family consumes – all it needs post-closing is energy-producing technology like solar panels to be installed. You can now upgrade your home to FULL Net Zero with the added benefit of having solar panels installed before move-in day for extra savings and comfort.
