High Performance Home Construction – Design Matters

An efficient and neat mechanical system is a clear sign of a good builder. If they are willing to run lines straight, organize systems where they make sense, and have a plan going into the project you know they are going to take care in other parts of the house. Looking at this system in our high performance home in Crossroads Farm, you can see the electrical lines are running straight and organized, the gas supply is next to the gas water heater, and the water manifold system is clearly labeled and organized. Whether you are buying or building, this is a key place to look at the builders skill and to determine the level of care they have and will provide to you.
