This new home applies building science technology by incorporating an advanced material and structural wall system. These highly durable and strong structural steel panels are fire, wind, mold, and insect resistant. They are 20-30% less costly than other alternative construction methods because much of the time, labor and waste associated with conventional wood frame construction is eliminated. This project is highly innovative, sustainable, and durable, with many inherent advantages not seen in today’s to-code residential construction.
The Zoetic Homes™ brand, developed by Yellow Brick Properties, embraces healthy, safe, comfortable and smart design in every home. This particular home achieves this, in part, by utilizing a structural steel insulated panel wall system (SSIPS), which contains no toxic VOC’s and are 100% recyclable. Highly insulated, this wall system helps ensure occupant comfort by maintaining a consistent temperature throughout the house. Requiring about half of the HVAC needed in a traditional built home of this size nets an immediate cost savings. The tight construction and insulation also makes a very quiet and enjoyable interior environment. With 90% of our time spent indoors healthy indoor air quality is a must and is achieved in this Zoetic 500 model home featuring VOC eating drywall, fresh air ventilation via ERV, low/no VOC paint, low/no emitting cabinetry and flooring.
Let’s not forget beauty and living! The floor plan is purposefully made versatile, allowing the homeowner to easily change the use of many rooms, depending on current stage of life and lifestyle needs. The ample windows bring the light and beauty of nature indoors. Outdoor living spaces include a walk-out patio from the master suite and a walk-out deck from the upper level living area. This home is built by a local builder with sustainable materials, backed by building science and third-party tested. This is a home you can feel good about and feel amazing living in. Come and see this newly completed home you will not want to leave!
