LEXINGTON GREEN is a three lot subdivision located in the beautiful Manville Heights neighborhood. The three lots are generously sized. Three single family homes will be constructed with the following characteristics:
HOME DESIGN: Design is by John Loomis. Each home will have the capability for complete living on the first floor or will have an elevator. The basic first floor plan has large open space for kitchen, living and dining. A flex room suitable for use as a bedroom will also be on the first floor. There will be a full bath and a half bath on the first floor. Ceiling height on all levels will be a minimum of nine feet. Homes will have a screened porch and a deck at the back side, and a large two stall attached garage will provide a seamless entry into the home. Some design flexibility can be accommodated for pre sold homes.
A house similar to the one above is proposed for Lot 3.
ENERGY EFFICIENCY: The foundation walls will be precast/pre-insulated Superior Walls (superiorwalls.com). The foundation walls can easily attain R30 insulation value (Current Code Standard is R10). The basement floor slab will be minimally insulated to R20 level (CCS none). Exterior walls will be Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) which achieve nearly an R40 value (epsbuildings.com) (CCS R19). The attic insulation level will be minimally R60 (CCS R38). All homes will have geothermal heating and air conditioning, which is the most efficient heating and cooling available. Domestic hot water will be primarily solar (viessmann.com). Solar photovoltaic grid tied electrical panels will supplant a good share of electrical needs.
HIGH QUALITY CONSTRUCTION: Superior workmanship and high quality materials will be utilized. Exterior siding will be James Hardie fiber cement board siding and trim. All windows and doors will be top of the line products. Walls and floor/ceiling assemblies will be fully sound insulated. State of the art wiring and security system infrastructure will be provided. Virtually all lighting will be LED. Garages will be fully insulated and will have heating capability. The space below the garage can function as living space or storage, and will also be a bona fide storm shelter.
Construction on all three homes will begin in spring 2014.
