How Green Should You Be?

The SunTerra design concept evolved from years of listening to and learning from our clients as they experienced living in their new energy-efficient homes.

We focus on occupant comfort, healthy air quality, less home maintenance, design aesthetics, and market value in applying conservation to our sustainable homes.

SunTerra Homes offer third-party certification of energy-saving and environmental features through the ENERGY STAR and Earth Advantage ® programs. Our green home designs apply the latest in building science and energy-saving features. Many are passive-solar home designs and all are supreme green home designs.

Profit Annually by Building a SunTerra Home

SunTerra has always evaluated energy-saving features cost effectively. "If it saves more in energy cost than it adds to the mortgage interest expense per year, then do it!" says Jim Chauncey, President/Owner of SunTerra. "Don't settle for a standard constructed home when you can receive more value for less cost in a Sunterra home."

SunTerra Homes employs a system design approach providing the best value in housing. Our 30 years of commitment and experience prove our exclusive designs meet the specific needs of today's changing lifestyles. We invite you to envision your future in a SunTerra home.
