In My Own Words

"We work hard to get the details right, and perhaps nowhere is it more important than on the heart of the home: the front porch. This is where people gather and community is built. HB&G columns are correctly proportioned and come in a variety of architectural styles. The cellular composition can be painted for an authentic look and is long-lasting for minimal upkeep."


Georgia-Pacific-produced Wood I-Beam Joists from BlueLinx are made for residential floor and roof systems. A wide selection of sizes and flange choices makes it easy to specify materials that are right for the builder. Applications include smaller tract homes or custom plans. Most pipes, ducts and wires can pass through the web of the Wood I-Beam joists. For FREE information, visit

"We work closely with BlueLinx to get the long spans we need to support our open floor plans. I-joists are an engineered product, so they are more stable than natural wood, which means less squeaks and fewer callbacks."

Windsor Windows & Doors

The latest windows from Windsor Windows & Doors include the cellular PVC Legend Series as well as the Next Dimension Pro. Touting it as more attractive than aluminum; easier to install and operate; low-maintenance; and more energy efficient, the Next Dimension series includes 30 new feature-clad covers. The windows have vinyl extrusions, a 2-inch frame with extruded nail fins and a fusion-welded frame to resist leaks. For FREE information, visit

"Windsor's Legend series windows come with simulated divided lites with a Low-E coating that give us the traditional look we're after along with architecturally correct PVC trim."


A programmable digital control for Carrier's Infinity System provides longer heating and cooling cycles at lower fan speeds for energy savings and more consistent temperatures throughout the home. It measures and regulates temperature, humidity, airflow, ventilation, indoor air quality and zoning with a single control. The unit also advises when it's time for regular maintenance and filter changes. For FREE information, visit

"As green builders, we recognize that a smart and properly sized HVAC system is one of the most important ways to reduce energy use and protect the environment."

"Another green building product, this tankless hot water heater provides hot water on demand. This eliminates standby losses and conserves a third of the gas used by conventional water heaters. Our customers like that the hot water doesn't run out."
