About Our Homes

Our homes are designed and constructed with long-term affordability for our homeowners in mind. Newly constructed homes have above-code insulation in the exterior walls and attic. Low-flow water fixtures, LED lighting, and Energy Star appliances are standard in new homes. Each home receives a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Rating to quantify the energy savings and assess the home’s estimated utility usage. Based on the last two years, the average HERS Rating is 56 – approximately 8 points better than the average new home in Kentucky! These improvements lower monthly utility bills and help increase the home’s durability by controlling moisture, humidity, pests, and air infiltration. We opt for concrete porches and patios instead of wood decks and solid-surface flooring instead of carpet to decrease future maintenance costs. Covered porches over entryways protect doors from weathering and related deterioration. When the grade of the lot allows, we employ zero-step entry to help the homeowner age in place and enjoy their new home for the decades to come. When needed, design changes are made to accommodate disabled occupants, such as handicap-accessible bathrooms.
