New, high performance home to be built and completed for spring 2019. Located on a quiet, tree-lined street with an easy walk to downtown, restaurants, shopping, and commuter routes. Built by a career craftsman, this Energy Star 3.1 certified home will be one of the most energy efficient in the Seacoast. Two blower tests during the construction process will insure against air leakage, and robust, advanced insulation and mechanical systems will yield a comfortable home and low cost of ownership. Architectural details include an open-concept floor plan with a first floor master suite, 2 ½ baths, full hardwood, granite, over-sized one car garage, and finished day-light walk-out basement. Siding will carry a 50 year manufacturer's warranty! High performance systems include heating and cooling by a ductless mini-split system and whole-house Heat Recovery Ventilator, high efficiency condensing on-demand gas hot water, thick exterior walls and roof, under slab insulation, an Insulated Concrete Form foundation, and triple-glazed windows. Some options include Net Zero Ready and a vent-less gas insert fireplace. Builder is happy to meet and discuss advanced construction techniques and performance details.
