Have you seen The Barn House yet? Nominated for ArchDaily's 2017 Building of the Year Award in the "House" category, this home has garnered international attention due to it's architectural uniqueness, energy efficiency and building products. We were excited to be the general contractor of this project and would be honored to win this prestigious award. For more information on The Barn House, including photos, click the link below.
We just wrapped up our new build in Greenfield, NY.
In one day, this house was delivered and had the roof installed - weren't the neighbors surprised when they got home from work!
Those who follow Mansfield Custom Homes know that we strive to incorporate a systems-built approach and to use the best quality durable materials possible in every home we build.
We love this home for its great floor plan and superior build features. This charming, colonial-style home was delivered using modular construction. Our modules come from Huntington Homes of Vermont, one of the region's premier builders of high quality modular homes. The home features an open floor plan with ground floor laundry, separate away room (home office) and three spacious bedrooms upstairs. A rustic wide maple flooring and a wood stove add to the charm of this home.
When it comes to technology and energy efficiency, this home has a high performance insulation package, high performance windows, and uses Mitsubishi Hyper Heat mini splits for heating and cooling. No OSB plywood was used during construction and all products are very low to no VOC.
We have a new home under construction in Greenfield Center, NY featuring innovative and durable design and materials. Our clients asked us to keep in mind their growing family and changing needs while designing their home. We also focused on the long term cost of a home, to include operating costs (energy consumption, maintenance, etc.). With the new 2017 New York State Energy Codes, it becomes more important than ever that new homes be constructed with designs and materials that provide upfront cost effectiveness while providing long-term energy efficiency and durability.
Here are some of the features we included in their home in order to meet these needs:
At Mansfield Custom Homes, we consider the above features to be standard in all of our designs and construction. However, not all builders make efficency and durability a priority. As you plan your new home, be sure to look into the imbedded quality of construction. It will pay off in reduced energy and maintenance costs over the life of the home.
There are many features to come in this innovative home. Look for updates in the near future as this project continues to progress. In the meantime, check out the photos below:
