Why Build a New Home with Thurman Homes

Buying a home is a huge decision! And deciding whether to buy an existing home or build a new, custom home is also a big decision. At Thurman Homes, we collaborate closely with homebuyers to build them a home that perfectly suits their wants and needs. But if you need more convincing reasons why you should choose to work with us on your new home instead of buying an existing home, here are some notable reasons.

You Have an Abundance of Choices

When you build a custom home with us, you get as much say as you want in the design process. This is something that gives homebuyers a lot of satisfaction. Afterall, your home is personal. It should look and feel like it was made for you.

You will not have to struggle with analysis paralysis either. While we give you tons of choices, we also make it easy for you to mix and match floor plans and design ideas without it becoming overwhelming. For example, our floor plans are already matched up with lots that will suit them the best, and our design team has put together palettes of hardware and finishes that complement each other. We also have a satisfying array of add-on options, like Tesla walls, that can make your home feel extra special and functional to you.

We Help You Every Step of the Way

As we touched on, buying a home is a daunting endeavor, but we make the process easier in any way we can. We start by helping you secure funding if you do not have it. This is one of the biggest hurdles early on in the home buying process. And then once we get into the design process, we make sure to be upfront with you about the costs. We don’t want you to be surprised.

Then, after your home is designed and built, we will go with you to do a walk through. We want you to be able to know your home inside out. We want you to inspect the details and ask questions. We will make sure that your home is everything you want.

And even after you're all moved in and settled, we are still going to be there for you. Our warranty ensures that we are here when you need us if something does not work. Although, we are confident that it will!

All in all, deciding whether to build a custom home or buy an existing one is a very personal matter. But if you want a home that is all new and built with you in mind, give Thurman Homes a call to get the process started.

Thurman Homes is Paving the Way for Sustainable Living

As the world grapples with the urgent need to address climate change and reduce carbon emissions, the concept of net-zero homes has gained significant traction. Net zero capable homes are revolutionizing the way we think about residential buildings, offering a sustainable and energy-efficient solution that minimizes our carbon footprint. In this article, we will delve into the essence of net zero capable homes, exploring their features, benefits, and the role they play in combating climate change.

Defining Net Zero Capable Homes

Net zero-capable homes are designed to produce as much renewable energy as they consume, resulting in a balance between energy usage and energy production. These homes are meticulously crafted to minimize energy waste through various means, such as efficient insulation, advanced building materials, and cutting-edge technologies. The surplus energy generated by these homes can be fed back into the grid, offsetting the energy consumed from non-renewable sources.

Features and Components

To achieve net zero capability, several key features and components are integrated into the design and construction of these homes:

  1. Solar Power Generation: Rooftop solar panels are the hallmark of net zero capable homes. These panels harness the power of the sun, converting sunlight into electricity to meet the home's energy needs. Excess energy can be stored in batteries or directed to the grid.
  2. Energy-Efficient Design: Net zero homes employ passive design strategies that maximize energy efficiency. This includes optimal insulation, airtight construction, high-performance windows, and efficient HVAC systems, reducing the energy required to heat, cool, and light the home.
  3. Advanced Energy Management Systems: Smart technologies play a crucial role in monitoring and managing energy consumption in net zero homes. These systems provide real-time data on energy usage, allowing homeowners to make informed decisions and optimize their energy consumption.

Here at Thurman Homes, it is our vision to build Net Zero Homes that are also affordable. We believe homes can be beautiful and efficient so take a look at our newest community, Whisper Valley, and find your sustainable dream home that.
