Many home builders have the capability of building beautiful homes. What makes LCH different is a very intentional focus on building better quality homes. We are focused on using more advanced products. Where many home builders are primarily focused on making a home stand out, we put just as much energy into making our homes stronger and more energy-efficient. We primarily use 2x6 exterior walls where most builders use 2x4, we use 7/16 wall sheeting where most builders use thermo-ply or foam, we put extra framing hardware in all of our homes even if the engineers don’t require it such as: Bearing plates instead of ½ washers, 13-20 Simpson hold-downs at exterior corners of the house, wall to wall straps and hurricane clips. We use encapsulated foam instead of baths or blow-in insulation, so our attics are conditioned space which is significantly cooler than the alternative. We use upgraded HVAC systems on most projects that have more stages than typical homes, which reduces wear on the equipment, increases comfort and reduces energy costs. We use more energy efficient windows where possible and we use LED lighting whenever possible. Our goal is to get HERS ratings below 55 and most of our homes end up in the high 40’s or low 50’s.
We also look at many details that other builders overlook. An example of that would be: Our electrical outlets are placed in the baseboard instead of in the wall which looks cleaner, hides electrical cords better and reduces potential damage to the drywall.
We use better quality products (as our standard) in places where other builders may choose price point products. Such as using lift master garage door openers, Jennair appliances and Rain bird irrigation instead of less expensive and lower quality alternatives.
The LCH team has experience building all types of homes including Traditional, modern, transitional, Mediterranean, ranch style, hill country etc. We have project managers that specialize in certain styles based on their passion so our customers will always get a project manager that is passionate about their particular build.
