Simplistic Detailing

What comes to mind when you hear the word green, raw, organic?   Probably not the construction of your dream home, but it is a perfect way to describe the incredible product that Jude Gavigan of In House Builders offers.  He prides himself on building green and offering a sustainable way of living.

In House Builders creates contemporary masterpieces with a focus on energy efficiency and clean organic lines that provide a mountain modern flare.  The simplistic detailing focuses in on the bold and raw structural elements of the home while creating functional spaces that the entire family will enjoy.  It is all about the little details with In House Builders such as the idea that you should be able to walk into any room in the house and not have to turn on a light during the daytime.  It is these small details that set them apart and bring the serene mountain beauty of the Sierras indoors.

This is ever apparent with the home that In House Builders just broke ground on in the Woods at Gray’s Crossing.  Located towards the top of Kelly Drive on a cul-de-sac, Woods lot 75 is a 3,200 sq. ft. 4 bed 3.5 bath with two patios, large mudroom,  a flex room and two master suites.  Woods 75 is one of my favorite home sites in all of Gray’s as it backs to 370 acres of open space with trails that take you throughout the community and over to the amenity core.

To build green, raw, organic structures, In House Builders uses materials that are energy efficient, low in maintenance, durable and have longevity for the increased moisture as well as solar gain that Truckee receives throughout the four seasons.  Not only are these materials efficient, they tie together to create a mountain modern design with “simplistic detailing”.  Below are some of the materials that will be used on Woods 75:

·         Large exposed steal beams (indoor & outdoor)

·         Radiant heating throughout

·         Exposed polished concrete floors and Hardwood throughout

·         Western red cedar siding and a mixture of Kynar coated metals

·         Use of Low VOC and Formaldehyde free products

·         A energy efficient insulation using a hybrid blown in system

·         Energy Star Ratings

·         Solar Ready

Woods 75 will be completed in July of 2015 and is currently available for sale at $1,495,000.  Building relationships with their clients is equally important as building sustainable homes.   They consider your vision for your dream home the most important element of construction, which is why In House Builders encourages buyers to engage in the process at an early stage so they can have ownership in the choice of materials and finishes.
