Energy Efficiency

Energy EfficiencyThe Design Team (St. Cloud, MN) knows energy-efficient homes are increasing in popularity every day. They save you money, and increase the value of your home considerably! Not only that, but energy-efficient homes are more comfortable and durable. The Department of Energy sponsors programs such as "Zero Energy Ready Home (ZERH)," which helps builders become knowledgeable about new construction methods that improve the energy efficiency of newly-built homes. Through the ZERH program, homes typically become 40%-50% more energy-efficient than a typical home construction!

A new home being built in Sartell, MN, was inspired by ZERH. The Design Team incorporated many of the latest energy-efficient ideas into this design, including foam insulation on the outside of the wall to reduce thermal bridging and cut heat loss. When you are looking for the best value and most energy-efficient designs around, trust the Design Team. We look forward to drawing you into the house of your dreams!

Tiny Houses Make Their Way to St. Cloud

The tiny houses trend has been sweeping the nation and is one of the newest home plans in MN. Always looking for new ways to design and build, the St. Cloud Technical and Community College (SCTCC) is joining the tiny house revolution. The Design Team has graduates from SCTCC who bring that same spirit of innovation into our St. Cloud home planning and design.
