Montgomery Custom Homes just finished our second home at The Retreat. This design was inspired by the owners desire to have a home that was not only energy efficient, but with a country ranch look and feel. This home sits in the middle of two lots and is surrounded by several live oaks that pre date the Battle of the Alamo! We used a lot of natural materials including cedar wood accents and natural stone for this project. Since we were going for a rustic look, we also used knotty alder cabinetry, hand scraped oak flooring, and pine trim materials on the interior of the home.
As a Dallas Green Builder, Montgomery Custom Homes was able to incorporate many green building features including:
- Six-inch exterior walls for more insulation
- Zip system sheathing
- Pex water lines with a plumbing manifold system
- and Noritz tank less water heaters
Additional green building features include tech shield radiant barrier roof decking, Monier life tile concrete roof tiles, Insulsafe attic insulation, and a 16 SEER air conditioning system by Trane.
