All materials and features in our custom homes are of the highest quality
While we build homes with standard construction materials (wood, frame and stucco, steel frame and stucco, masonry and wood, etc.), MC² Homes specializes in high quality masonry materials that include SIPS (Structural Insulated Panel System) and ICF (Industrial Strength Insulated Concrete Forms) blocks such as Rastra and Fox Block.
When combined with high quality metal roofing, it offers unmatched durability and fire retardancy on top of energy savings, sound insulation and other benefits that add up to enduring beauty, safety and value.
To the extent that budget allows, we focus on high-efficiency homes. In addition to the energy-saving materials above, we can combine a variety of efficiency options, including:
Airtight building envelopes for minimal air exchange
High-SEER HVACs – central and/or mini-splits for zoned heating and cooling
Low-E window systems
In-floor radiant heat
Increasingly, MC² Homes is gravitating to solar in a range of applications. Solar water heating is an easy "entry" to solar for many homeowners. We also offer homes with solar heating and/or solar electricity overall.
And of course, even with no other integrated technologies, "going solar" begins with planning the lot orientation of your custom home, considering windows, porches, overhangs, how and when you'll use different interior spaces and more.
