THIS HOUSE HAS GOOD
Every Artisan home is built to a level
of quality that isn't apparent when you first walk through and see the
beautiful trim, hardwood floors and built-in cabinets. In fact many of
the details that we put extra time and attention to will never be seen by our
clients. Why would we do this? Because we want our homes to have
Building a home today requires an
on-going commitment to keep on top of the many new materials, building codes
and best practices that are out there. This is commonly referred to as
Building Science, and it changes at an amazing rate as new products and
techniques are created to improve the livability and durability of today's

clients with the best home possible for their investment - leveraging these
new advances in building science when they prove themselves to be a true

federal and state Energy StarŪ programs are designed to help builders create
homes that are substantially more energy efficient than most homes built

result? Homes that are both cost effective to operate and comfortable
to live in - saving you up to 30% or more on your heating & cooling costs.
All Artisan homes are built to the Energy Star standards as a baseline,
not as an option.

as well as its environment. This includes ...
How the home
is designed to take advantage of natural views and the path of the sun.
How the home
is built for energy efficiency to provide comfort and reduce our use of
