Building House of your Dreams & Saving you Energy Dollars

If you have ever fallen in love with a location that is in an area that flooding is a possibility or right next to environmentally sensitive sites, an elevated home is a must. Basically, an elevated home is a home that is raised above the ground. Yes, it is similar to a stilt home. Meaning it is built on foundations that are raised above the flood plain. Being elevated, the home will incur less damage, and hopefully no damage if flooding were to occur. Building an elevated home has its perks, one big one is price. In addition, our pedestal home can not only be raised but it can cantilever over sensitive sites.   This building style makes some locations now possible. With this knowledge up your sleeve,  you should be able to buy the land at a significant discount improving your investment even more.

How Energy Efficient is your Home?

The numbers may be shocking but they don’t lie. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, more than 90% of the 116 million homes in the United States are expected to have higher heating bills this winter compared with last winter, mainly because of higher projected prices for residential natural gas, propane, and electricity. AT LEAST a 13% increase over last winter’s average. NOT what homeowners are wanting to hear. Research also shows that more and more homeowners have had enough and strongly desire to have an energy efficient home.
