HIGH PERFORMANCE HOME

IS A HIGHER QUALITY HOME

People talk about “green” or “sustainable” homes. 
We prefer the term ‘high performance’…
but what do all those terms mean?

 

True Turtle defines high performance in terms of quality.  Our homes are designed and built above and beyond the typical builder quality house. 

 

Our ‘high performance’ homes: 

 

  • are exceptionally energy and water efficient…we’ve built net zero energy homes!

  • provide outstanding comfort…virtually draft free and no hot or cold rooms.

  • deliver exceptional air quality…fresh air designed in 24/7.

  • use zero or low toxicity finishes…to protect your families health.

  • are durable and easy to maintain…for low cost/low maintenance living.

  • support our local flora and fauna…for exterior as well as interior beauty.

  • help solve DC’s stormwater problems…

            our goal is 100% onsite stormwater management and finally…

 

Our homes are tested, inspected and verified by a third party green building professional…so a you know we’ve delivered on our quality promise.

 

These high performance attributes make a ‘green’ or ‘sustainable’ home a higher quality, healthier place to live for you and your family.
