Two new homes under construction with a third on the way! These will be 1,100 sqft, 2BD 2BTH, LEED Gold certified cottage homes, with whole house fire suppression and ground source heat pump heating and cooling (we're talking a $350 annual heating and AC bill).

Look for more photos in coming weeks when everything starts to bloom. Read more
