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:

  • an upgraded insulation package
  • windows insulated with low-e / argon glass
  • programmable thermostats
  • energy star rated appliances and lighting fixtures
  • hvac equipment with a higher seer rating
  • or perhaps a tankless water heater

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

  • a conditioned crawl space
  • low v.o.c. paints
  • products with limited out-gasing such as natural fiber carpeting or solid-wood cabinetry
  • a radon mitigation system
  • electronic air cleaners or a fresh-air exchanger
  • or even e.m.f.-free sleeping zones

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.
