Wendell Falls featured in Green Builder Magazine!

Wendell Falls featured in Green Builder Magazine!

As a nationally recognized builder of high-performance homes, Homes By Dickerson is excited to share the most recent accolade of  Wendell Falls featured in Green Builder Magazine!

We could not be more proud to be a partner of the developer, Newland Communities, or of the community itself.  Check out this link which will take you to the publication:
https://www.greenbuildermedia.com/green-builder-magazine-july-august-2018

Not only will you notice on page 33 that Newland Communities won an Honorable Mention as a 2018 Eco-Minded Leader but there is also a 6-page spread (pages 46-51) delving into the green practices and mindset of the builders and community as a whole.  You will not want to miss page 51’s in-depth coverage on the Tesla powerwall and how that is just one of the many resources (not to overshadow solar panels of course!) that can lead you to net zero living!

For more than 10 years, Homes By Dickerson has been a leader in building each and every custom design to the highest green building standards available.  Not only are they Energy Star certified but they are also crafted to the National Green Building Standard and voluntarily built to the NC HERO Code.  It is just one more reason why Homes By Dickerson is the premiere custom builder of The Triangle and Pinehurst areas of North Carolina.

For more information on how you can build “The Home of Your Life” with all of the included high-performance features we offer, please contact Whitney White at 919-917-3132 or Whitney@HomesByDickerson.com

 

 

 

North Carolina Building Performance Association Reports the Value of Building High Performance Homes

North Carolina Building Performance Association Reports the Value of Building High Performance Homes

It is no secret that Homes By Dickerson has a passion for and a commitment to building high-performance homes.  In fact, each of our custom designs are Energy Star Certified, crafted to the National Green Building Standard and voluntarily built to the NC HERO Code.  On an even larger scale, Homes By Dickerson builds more homes to the NGBS standard than any other builder in the state of North Carolina resulting in our homes accounting for 5% of all homes in the United States built to the NGBS standard.

As impressive as all of this sounds, what does this mean about the value of our homes, especially the value of our homes to our buyers?  The list of reasons why one should purchase a home built to the highest high-performance expectations possible is eye-opening.  It includes saving money on monthly bills, better health opportunities for you and your family due to a better air quality, and benefits to our environment-just to name a few.

The report below, sent out by The North Carolina Building Performance Association (a third party) reports that high-performance homes bring more value to the market than the alternative.  Check out these interesting statistics and findings!

 

PRESS RELEASE: Report finds 9.5% premium for high performance homes sold in North Carolina’s metro markets

The interior of this Homes by Dickerson ranch plan, The Lakewood, combines elegant fixtures, custom trim, stone and rough-hewn beams to create the feeling of a luxurious mountain retreat.  The earth tone color palette used in this home, from the beautiful clay colored walls to the unique fireplace mantel and surround in the family room, support that atmosphere.  The charm and character of the study with its vaulted ceilings, hand-stained beams, floor-to-ceiling stone surround and dulled brass and copper light fixtures will make you envision calm, cozy evenings. Dark walnut stain on the site-finished hardwoods lends a warmth to each of the rooms on the first floor including a master suite, guest suites, family room and gorgeous gourmet kitchen.  Upstairs you will find a generous guest suite along with a bonus room and ample storage.  Additional features include a large screen porch, 10 foot ceilings, Electrolux appliances, an oversized home site and so much more!
