Next Generation Homes

Buying a home should be like it is when one buys a car. The car manufacturer posts the accessories, the benefits, the warranties and even the mileage per gallon in the car’s window, for the buyer’s use.  Wouldn’t it be nice if General Contractors did the same for their homes? 

Well, the time has come… and as a homebuilder in Lynchburg, VA, CS Custom Structures leading the way with their energy efficient, smarter performance, Next Generation Homes.  Using the U. S. Department of Energy’s performance scale, our Next Generation Homes showcase the estimated annual energy usage as well as the estimated monthly costs for gas and electric consumption. 

To use the U.S. Department of Energy’s performance scale, we certify the thermal barrier of the home and with our Next Generation Homes exceeding local code requirements, the buyer will be able to compare an average home, designed to code verses our Next Generation Homes.  To date our Next Generation Homes have proven to be between 40 and 50 percent more energy efficient than a standard house that meets local code criteria for energy use.
