Guidelines to Home Building

Her latest collections of specialized homes pay homage to traditional design and are multi-certified achieving the Energy Star, Building America, and Built Green’s highest certification, 5-Star, on all 4 new homes.

Rose doesn’t add decorative elements but instead chooses to approach the building process from a holistic or whole house approach, integrating each phase of the building process to increase the overall comfort, performance and livability of their homes.
