What makes Connect Homes different?
Connect Homes is looking to change the way homes are designed and built. In practical terms, we think it should be easier to get a beautiful home suited to your needs in the neighborhood where you’d like to live. Too often to live in your preferred location, you need to accept a home whose design you don’t love. Or to get a design you like, you must sacrifice your favorite neighborhood. Or you have to do a fully custom design, which takes time and is full of uncertainties.
We think building a home can be more like ordering a car than commissioning an opera. Our architects have plans already done, so you can see what you’re going to get without spending significant money on architectural fees. We can build your house in 6-9 months from initial discussions to move in, which is less than half the time of a fully custom home. And most of the cost of your home is quoted up front, so budget overruns, change orders and hidden fees are substantially reduced if not eliminated.
One of the biggest hurdles when starting to consider building a new home is understanding how to pay for it. We have teamed up with Umpqua Bank who offers construction financing where you can finance up to 90% of the cost, depending on your specific financial situation. You can also include the purchase of the land with the construction cost and roll it into one loan. During the course of design and construction, you will pay interest only on the amount drawn, then at the end of construction, your loan can be converted into conventional financing. Contact me for more information on financing your dream of building a new, modern home.
Energy consumed for heating and cooling in homes has a large influence on energy-related carbon dioxide emissions. Residential sector carbon dioxide emissions grew by an average of 1.0 percent per year in the United States between 1990 and 2009 (refer to this EIA report). Considering this fact, it is important for homes to be as environmentally responsible as possible. Connect Homes offer superior energy efficiency. Your home will use less resources and provide significant yearly savings. Click the image below to download a diagram that details the “green” features in our homes.
What technology does Connect Homes use?
We think of the technology behind Connect Homes as a building system. That system has several desirable characteristics:
Higher Quality. First, it is based on a steel frame module. Steel provides high quality, both in terms of strength and in terms of precision dimensions.
Open Spaces. Second, our module design allows long spans (40 feet) so that our designs can have large window walls and big open spaces. We can build up to three stories high. We offer designs with 18’ ceiling heights. And we can do designs from small (640 square feet) to large (5000 square feet or more).
Better Reliability. Third, our system modules are assembled in our factory. Because most of our work is done indoors, weather damage isn’t hiding under the surface. Our workers are also highly trained and experienced in the materials and methods of our system, which helps to maintain high fit and finish levels. And we carefully measure and manage our materials and components so that we know what works.
Shorter Design And Build Time. With Connect Homes, you can choose a design, select finishes and apply for any local approvals in less time than it would take to find an architect and get on his or her schedule. Once approvals and financing are complete, your home can be built in a few months. Site preparation happens at the same time that your modules are in the factory. Completion of your home, once modules arrive, takes only a few weeks. Since the factory is in San Bernardino, San Diego residents can expect quicker delivery of their modules.
