that pool is gorgeous! love those designs.
WOW man! Love the pool and wine cellar, the kitchen also looks amazing!
Thanks guys ;)

Here's one of my favorite staircase shots. It's just a back staircase in one of the houses we built. I think it's cool you can see a number of elements in the shot, such as custom paneling on walls, custom recessed HVAC vent in the floor. Any my favorite is the special 3 step "distressed" looking finish we did on the wood floors.

Thought I'd share this image with you guys, a picture I took from one of our clients homes today:

An example of how well spray foam insulation works. We completed a renovation on the left side of this house last summer and used a spray foam insulation to highly insulate the area, keeping the heat in through winter and the A/C during summer. Notice how the frost doesn't melt. On the right side where no work was done there is an open ceiling with no insulation. You will notice all of the frost has melted as the heat from inside the house leaks through the roof melting the frost.



Here's video of the foam being applied:

Crazy places. How much extra does the work to stay "Green" add to the cost on average. Or are you able to do it for the same prices?

It's a complicated question. It can cost extra, but doesn't have too. ;) There are so many different aspects of construction that can make a project "more green" than another, some cost a lot of money with no ROI, some cost up front but you save in the long run (i.e. solar panels or geothermal), and some don't cost anymore and just require some knowledge. Last winter we built a LEED Platinum house without any of the "expensive" green items. The 2,300 sq. ft. house came in at just over $200 per sq. ft. Very Very affordable for our location. Almost no homes are built here at that price range.
