R&R Homes builder update on the Northern Colorado new home construction market.

February 13 2017 – We are gearing up for a busy summer in Northern Colorado and are currently in the design phase of 2 pre-sale homes on acreage in Berthoud. We have some very lots in Loveland (Marianna Springs and Alford Meadows) and Thompson Crossing near Centerra to build your new energy efficient home. Please contact us today to review your new home options.

October 12 2016 – It has been a busy summer and we are building a few homes right now and are working on plans for a few pre-sales. We are building a custom home right now with an upgraded HVAC system with 98% modulating Lennox furnace, Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV) to achieve proper air changes per hour, 20 SEER AC unit and a 2-zone system to heat/cool the main level and basement separately. We also installed a 6.3 kW solar panel system on the roof with SolarWorld 300W panels and Enphase S280 microinverters. We installed LED light bulbs everywhere instead of just CFL’s. It will be exciting when we do the blower door test and final Energy Star evaluation to see how low the HERS score will be with solar.

April 18 2016 – It has been a busy late winter and early spring and we are preparing to start 2 pre-sale homes in Kendall Brook in Loveland in the next few weeks. These will be the last 2 homes in Kendall Brook and the subdivision will be completed. We had a great time building in Kendall Brook the last 10+ years and met so many nice people who bought our homes.

We will start a semi-custom pre-sale house in Fort Collins soon and then a semi-custom pre-sale house on 2 acres in Berthoud. We are talking to a few people now that are interested in building new homes so it should be a busy spring and summer.

Land is the premium right now as it is scarce in the nicer areas so please contact us as we have some lots in West Loveland and some in Thompson Crossing near Centerra to build on immediately.

We do have 1 spec house for sale currently at 4349 Yarrow Lane Johnstown CO 80534 in Thompson Crossing near Centerra and 1-25/US-34. Please visit the new home blog for 4349 Yarrow Lane to see some current pictures and updates as we are 99% done with this new Energy Star home.

Please remember we are 100% committed to Energy Star and its superior building practices! R&R Homes is committed to providing energy efficient and comfortable and long-lasting new Energy Star homes in Northern Colorado!
