In their own words…

Dear Ken,

 

Yesterday we had a home energy survey sponsored by the State of Connecticut.  As you probably know, the survey focuses primarily on outside air that is unintentionally entering your home, as well as the heat inside your home that is escaping.  Our home, a Beaver Mountain Log Home, is an insulated 2,960 square foot chalet-style that was built 12 years ago.

 

In summary, the gentleman doing the test concluded their work by stating that they had a new ‘first place home.’  They said that our home was the tightest home of any that they had tested.  They claimed that the test results of our home by far exceeded all the homes that they had tested to date.  They also said our numbers were exceptional and that the first place home that now dropped to second place was not even close to the results completed for our home.

 

I understand that some of the praise also goes to Chris Engelhardt, our builder.  It is my belief that a well-engineered, well-designed and precisely manufactured home will not be satisfactory if it is not built well.  In addition, a good builder can only build a good house if it has been designed and manufactured professionally.

 

We have been extremely happy in our Beaver Mountain Log home. Believe me when I say that that is an understatement.

 

I personally spent many hours performing the responsibilities as the general manager throughout the construction process and I must admit the whole project went smoothly.  I have encouraged others to do the same, especially since Beaver Mountain Log & Cedar Homes is so accommodating and easy to work with.

 

Sincerely,

 

Kevin and Elizabeth

At Beaver Mountain, we incorporate environmental and energy-saving building practices into our designs by offering:

  • 24″ on center stud and rafter spacing – (less wood means more insulation at the exterior envelope)

  • Engineered wood beams and headers – (engineered wood products are made from smaller lumber and are designed to allow for smaller headers and longer spans. Smaller headers allow for more insulation at the exterior envelope and greater spans mean less posting and thus less material use.)

  • Insulated headers at framed wallsandersen

  • Insulated sheathing at framed walls

  • Spray foam insulation, which does a superior job insulating and reducing unwanted air flow

  • High efficiency Andersen® or Pella® windows and patio doors, which help save on energy costs

We are also very proud to use logs that are harvested from sustainable managed forests. As the trees are cut down, they are replaced with new growth!
