Custom Built Home Details

What make this custom built home so energy efficient and superior? Well, as with anything of quality, it starts from the ground up.

  • Foundation Walls: Two feet thick and heavily sealed from the outside preventing cold damp air from entering the basement and causing the infamous musky smell and mildew.
  • Yard Grading: The ground on all sides of the house slope away and combined with the gutter down spouts draining six plus feet from the structure prevents water from settling around the foundation.

Temperature Control

The average electric/HVAC bill for this three level, 3,664 square foot home is a fraction of what other comparable homes cost per month. This remarkable efficiency is achieved by the precise room location of the air returns high on the walls and thick top of the line insulation.

  • Heating: The home has two heat pump units with strategically located air returns. The primary living area has a large wood fire place with a built in blower and coupled with the elevated location of the main level air return the home can be heated cheaply and easily.
  • Owner’s Effective Heating Process: By using only the fa of the heat pump while burning the fire place, the hot air is pulled across the main living area and into the air system, which disperses the hot air throughout the home, keeping temperature very comfortable even on the coldest winter days. The only time you would have to run the heating unit is while you are asleep (burning a fire place while asleep is dangerous) or if you run out of wood.
  • Insulation: To keep the air in the home from exchanging with the outside air the entire home is wrapped in superior grade tyvek. Nearly, every home is wrapped in tyvek but the kind used for this home is much better than the builder grade stuff. Combine with the over sized insulation in the walls and 18 inches of the fluffy attic insulation this home is air tight.

Creaky Floors? Not This House!

How many times have you gone into a house, old or new, and noticed that the floors creek, pop or just feel thin under your feet. These are Juiced up floors.

Typical Home

  • Floor Joists: ½”x12″ particle board glued between two pieces of 2″x12″ and not laterally supported.
  • Flooring: ½” thick ply board “nailed” down and over time the nails come loose. Then the flooring is laid directly on the thin ply board.

Custom Built Grey Fox Home

  • Floor Joists: Solid wood 2″x12″ and laterally supported. Meaning, they will not move.
  • Flooring:  ¾” plywood that is “screwed and glued”, which, will never come loose. On top of that is a ¼” sub floor laid in cross section pattern and finished with 1 ¼” solid hard wood floors on the main level and extra thick ¾” padding and carpet on the top floor.
