When it comes to environmentally friendly home construction, there are 50 shades of green, so it seems.
One can talk about building green. But what does it really mean? Energy efficiency? Recycled materials? A geothermal heating and cooling system? Solar panels on the roof?
When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, “See! This our father did for us.”
– John Ruskin
Simply put, quality is our number one priority. Quality craftsmanship needs to happen at all levels of a home’s construction. The depth and width of the foundations’ footings are never seen in the finished product, but they matter as much as the corner joint in the crown molding. Perhaps more importantly, the quality of the foundation and frame ensure that the finish joinery will stay where the carpenters put it. At Marsico Custom Homes we take just as much pride in the work that won’t be seen as we do in the work that shows. We have had many comments about how clean our work is during the foundation and rough framing phases. This makes it easy to do premium finish work. These fundamentals are important, but are just the beginning.
