THE COSTS OF BUILDING YOUR HOME vs. YOUR HOME’S LIFE-CYCLE COSTS
A great deal of experience, vision and insight is designed into every ECOterra home. How a house is placed on the building site for both the best energy-efficiency and the best views, foot traffic flow and the occupant’s lifestyle, both inside and outside the home, are just a fraction of our considerations in the process of designing and building your home. All of this is done with a focus on saving you money on your energy costs for the life of your home.
ECOterra homes are in the top percentile of energy-efficient homes in the U.S., statistically speaking. It initially costs a bit more* to build a custom home of this caliber, but homes with top-of-the-line energy-efficiency built into them like ECOterra’s, recoup their initial expense within 5-7 years. That is a savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars over 25 years. You can use the money you are saving by not having to pay annual energy costs to buy a new toy, take a trip to Italy or help defray the costs of a college education!
