Things are rolling right along in the shop and design studio. We've completed design on Kristen & Sean's home and have begun kit production. Beefed up insulation, strategic placement of the home on the lot, and smart design choices have all been used to keep projected energy use to a minimum. The kit will be shipping later this summer, stay tuned for photos of the construction!
DESIGN AWAY THE WINTER BLUES
If you're considering a 2016 build for your house NOW is the time to start the planning process.
We're launching a new blog series profiling Noble Home owner/builders. Here, we'll track their Noble Homes from design to construction, highlight inventive and exciting aspects of their projects, and share updates as they build and then live in their new homes. We hope that you find tracking their progress as interesting as we do!
Our demonstration house is still for sale, and we found this posting on Upstater.com.
This eco-friendly listing (living room pictured above) came across our desk not too long ago, and we found it to be drool-worthy. Alas, it is only a spec house, and it’s located in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts. There is good news, however: If you’re digging the look of this “modern, green homestead”, you can design your own with the company, Noble Homes, then they send you the kit and you build it yourself wherever you want (might we suggest the Hudson Valley or Catskills?). But what about eco-friendly homes that have already been built? As you probably know by now, there are plenty around here, and more are popping up on real estate markets everyday. We dug around and found just a taste of what’s available in the Upstater region. There’s this one in Tivoli and…well, we don’t want to ruin the surprise. You’ll just have to tune in to learn more.
