Building a Better Home

Building a Better Home

Devoted was the first builder in the Tri-Cities to construct a certified Built Green® home. And we were one of the first in the area to use Insulated Concrete Form (ICF) construction, which provides superior energy efficiency, noise dampening, improved air quality, and requires less maintenance. You can rest assured that we strive to be on the forefront of new energy initiatives.  If sustainability is a priority to you, we offer solutions to build above Energy Star ® and new Washington State energy code standards.  Depending on your goals and preferences, you can expect that our homes feature energy efficient and environmentally sustainable materials that best suit your individual needs.

If energy efficiency and sustainability are lower on you priority list allow us to put together a custom package of features and systems that we match according to your home site, home plan, desires and resources. We will share our expertise in why we recommend each feature and system for your particular home, allowing you to make informed decisions on some major factors in the home building process that effect the livability for years to come.

We firmly believe that, for a house to be a home, it must marry functionality and form with beautiful design. Homebuyers often begin a dialogue with us by wondering if “new” is right for them. There are significant benefits to purchasing a new home, rather than a home which has previously been lived in. Here are some thoughts we’d like to share with you about why we firmly believe a new home is a better home.
