Our designs are appealing and the comfort of the finished product is profound.

JUST HOMES aren’t trendy, they are timeless.

  • The building forms and interior spaces are configured to best utilize the sun’s energy.

  • Gracious covered entry porches and transition spaces make coming and going welcoming and functional.

  • Interior layouts are designed with a balance of openness, connection and privacy.

  • Most plans can be reversed (or mirrored) east to west. 

  • Not every design will work on every building site, so we prefer to talk with you before you purchase a set of plans. We’ll help you select the design that best suits your needs and fits your building site.

  • We prioritize comfort, usefulness and durability, informed by our decades of experience in the custom residential field.

How JUST HOMES are built

From the capillary break on the footing to the depth of the roof overhang (and everything in between), the details are what make JUST HOMES special and what make the houses work. We use an integrated approach to optimize the balance between the parts to build the house and the systems to run the house.

  • Super-insulated walls, floors and ceilings and airtight construction details create an enclosure that conserves energy and stays comfortable in the coldest (or the hottest) weather.

  • Based on energy modeling, we tailored slightly different versions of our standardized assemblies and specifications for both Climate Zone 6 and Climate Zone 7.

  • Low building energy loads allow for smaller equipment and smaller ductwork. 

  • All-electric operation and low loads allow all energy needs to be met with clean energy.

  • Chases and soffits facilitate straightforward distribution of conditioned air to the living spaces.

  • Typical equipment in a JUST HOME:

    • Domestic hot water is delivered via a heat pump water heater.

    • A high-efficiency ventilation system brings in filtered fresh air and expels stale air.

    • A high-efficiency cold climate air source heat pump with built-in backup electric resistance heat provides reliable heating and cooling.

    • A whole house energy monitor displays how much energy the house is using and how much is being produced by the solar array.
