On a site surrounded by custom homes, this project had to push what’s possible for production homes while taking advantage of the rugged southwestern site. Abundant windows and bold massing allow for desert views throughout the home. The open layout promotes fluid gathering areas, with tucked-away bed and bath zones. A covered veranda that extends almost the entire width of the home allows plenty of outdoor living. Thoughtful lighting lets the homeowners stay outside long after the desert sun has set.
The Premier Collection offers homes that are Energy Star–rated, featuring tankless water heaters; drought-tolerant landscaping; dual-pane, low-E windows; 24-inch eaves to help manage solar gain; and R-19 walls and R-38 attic insulation. Most of the lighting in the homes is fluorescent.
