While the quality and craftsmanship of an Arbor Custom Home is evident at first glance, what lies behind the walls is truly what sets our homes apart. Our new homes are constructed to stringent Earth Advantage standards that keep our homes consistently warm, cost-effective, and ecologically sound. These intangible attributes often get upstaged by the more conspicuous details of our beautiful interiors and exteriors. However, it is these unseen qualities that make an Arbor Custom Home function efficiently and hassle-free now and for many years to come. Not to mention… they also help to keep your utility costs down!
Let’s take a look inside the guts of one of our homes in progress at Alpine View to see the details:
Blown-in fiberglass insulation in the garage ceiling where it tightly seals in the heat and keeps the cold out.
More blown-in insulation. Here we see it in a wall.
This home is Central Vac Ready.
High density spray foam is used on backside of the stairs. Note how it is coming through… this is where air would leak from in many older homes! Not any more. It will also help deaden some of the stairwell noise too.
Here you can see the duct work going through the open web joists. Also note all the gray mastic on the connections… eliminating air leaks.
More spray foam & more blown in fiberglass insulation. Again, this foam will block the flow of unwanted air leaks, water, insects, etc. That big, square piece of steel on diagonal, protects you from accidentally nailing through the main electrical line!
716 NW Newstead Terrace: Windsor Classic Package, stainless steel Whirlpool appliances with gas range, wood laminate floors on entire main level, walnut cabinets with bronze knobs, granite counter tops with full height diagonal tile backsplash, Hunter Douglas blinds, corner unit with tall ceilings & lots of light & attached garage.
While new home sizes continue to generally shrink, square footage could be on the rebound. Click on the link below to read about Arbor Custom Homes take on current housing trends of selling smaller versus larger newly constructed homes during an economic recession:
