custom luxury homes in midlothian, chesterfield, powhatan, amelia, richmondWorking together through the design process and into construction itself, we’ll explore the costs and benefits of those features you feel are important.

In the interest of energy efficiency, you may want to include:

  • programmable thermostats
  • ‘low-e’ glass
  • a tankless water heater
  • an upgraded insulation package
  • hvac equipment with a higher seer rating
  • or even solar panels

If environmentally friendly products and a healthy home inspire you, we
can explore the use of:

  • low v.o.c. paints
  • radiant heating
  • a fresh-air exchanger
  • electronic air cleaners
  • bamboo or eucalyptus flooring
  • or products with limited out-gasing such as natural fiber carpeting, & solid wood cabinetry

Or you may wish to consider incorporating universal design features, which will allow for changes in lifestyle over time, such as:

  • at least one ground-level entrance
  • an open floor plan with limited load-bearing interior walls for future flexibility
  • covered entryways with adequate lighting and transition or ‘landing’ spaces
  • wider hallways and interior doors
  • rocker switches, lever handles, and easily accessible controls and storage areas

Either way, there’s a great deal of excitement and satisfaction in researching and weighing what’s most important for you and your family,  and then witnessing your decisions take shape as they all  come together in your new home.
