We have purchased our land and are in the process of submitting our house plans to the CC&R for Vistoso Highlands. We purchased a lot just off the fourth hole at the Rancho Vistoso Golf Course. We are extremely excited, this will be the first home that my husband and I will have built together. We already know we are going to use energypanelsystems.com for our walls. We have talked with some other green builders in the area and found the cost per square foot to be the best and their testimonials from other owner-builders who have built with them as well. I searched everywhere and was only able to find one thing where the customer was not happy in the last 36 months.
The company was told the sizes of door openings and they built them to those specifications, but the doors were pre-hung, which was not discussed, so the openings were different than the standard raw opening. Energy Panel Systems accepted the blame and paid the contractor a couple thousand dollars to correct the problem. That sounds like good business to us - they just require a signed document now confirming opening sizes of all openings. We have several other subcontractors lined up and just have to play the waiting game for the next month or so, unfortunately. We are excited and will keep everyone posted.
