Framework 

Finger jointed studs reduce amount of trees used in building a home and provide added strength

Ventilation System 

Aprilaire Mechanical Ventilation system that constantly exchanges indoor air for outdoor air providing clean and fresh air.

Roofing 

Tile roofs have long lasting lives that are built to last 50 years or longer.  

Insulation

Blow in blanket fiberglass insulation saves energy, controls sound, and improves air quality. 

Interior Care 

Low-VOC paints, no added formaldehyde cabinets & insulation, high efficacy lighting, and

ENERGY STAR appliances provide Cleaner Air, Safer Environment, and Higher Efficiency.

Windows 

Double paned, low-e filled with argon gas reduce heat loss while maintaining thermal energy. 

Air Barrier System 

Exterior walls are wrapped in house wraps and any interior edge that is exposed to the exterior is sealed with spray applied polyurethane foam. These barriers ensure the house is properly insulated.

100% Stone & Stucco Exterior

Exterior provides sustainable exterior, better insulation, and sound barrier.

Landscaping & Irrigation 

Drought tolerant landscaping and the irrigation systems are set to adhere to current water restrictions, reducing water waste. 

HVAC

Energy efficient, 14 SEER rated have well-sealed ductwork, and controlled ventilation.

Ash Creek’s Green Building Standards


We’ve made it our standard procedure to build our homes to the highest level, not only in aesthetics but in functional design as well. Each home built by Ash Creek Homes is thoughtfully crafted to minimize the impact on 5 different environmental areas: Energy, Water, Material and Products, Health and Safety, and Community. This is achieved by the builder and architect working hand in hand to design a home that is purposeful, detailed, and adheres to the certain efficiency guidelines.  Take a look...
