Cornerstone Award 2011: Five Star Energy Star Home

This custom colonial style home is uniquely situated by a sunny meadow, a position that will maximize passive solar gain in the winter months (and provide wonderful views year round!). It’s special features include a slab-on-grade foundation, radiant floor heating, low-flow toilets, and EnergyStar-rated lighting. In order to save both time and energy, the walls, ceilings and roofs were all built off-site and delivered, helping to reduce the framing time. The home owners decided to leave the 3rd floor “attic” space unfinished during the initial construction phase to allow them to grow into their dream home.

Bedrooms: 4 | Baths: 2.5 | Square Footage: 2624| HERS rating: 59 | Heat- Radiant Floor via Geothermal Water to Water System |Insulation- Rigid foam and Recycled Cellulose


Shane built our dream home and was instrumental in making everything come together. From the first day we met Shane, we felt that we met someone who actually listened to our dreams, not just our wish list. Shane guided us through the whole acquisition and construction process and his open communication gave us confidence that we had chosen the right contractor. Shane and crew were always available to educate us about the way the house was constructed and how everything worked together.
The thing that make Shane stand out is that he really sees the house in its surroundings and he makes sure that it fits within the space. We love the house and of course, it’s surroundings. So far we have seen deer, turkeys, a lone rabbit and the beautiful sunsets. We will certainly be working with Shane and his crew on any of our future projects in and around the house.
