Local land developer under direction of Martin Geomatics Engineering is breaking new ground with two new subdivisions within ten minutes of Lethbridge, in the town of Coalhurst. With the new easy and safe access to the town through the Highway 25 access North of the Highways 3 overpass, families are able to build a home that suits all of their needs in the quiet, welcoming, and safe town of Coalhurst
The two new additions to the town offer different features, but also have the additives of easy access to town and city amenities, the serenity of the country life, the security of the small town, and locations away from highways and industrial companies for reduced noise. Construction has begun in the lots, with new housing construction expected to begin in august.
The first community is Meadowlark Estates which offers oversized country estate lots at a very low price compared to lots in new developments in Lethbridge. The lots in this community average from 50 feet wide, and range from 65 feet to 179 feet deep. With the additional space, families are able to build a larger home and accommodate more off-street parking, removing congestion on the streets within the subdivision.
Building in Meadowlark Estates is Greener Homes who has been building energy-efficient homes since 2009. Greener Homes works with any custom build to identify how they are able to make a home energy-efficient in simple ways to help save money on utilities, while providing you with a more healthy, comfortable living environment. A variety of options to save money with energy efficiency are available for anyone’s budget, including improved windows, insulating the attic, and their special structure wall design. Greener Homes is able to take any custom build to the next level of efficiency from simple solutions, all the way to net-zero where the home is producing as much energy as it uses annually, through geothermal and solar technology.
“These three are what I highly recommend if you can find it in your budget and you can choose if it is just the windows, just the walls, or the attic insulation, these will make a difference, but the combination is a really good bang for your buck and you can tell, it will make it 50 per cent more efficient then regular builds, built to code today, saving people 25 to 85 per cent on operating costs annually,” says Dave Wolfe, owner of Greener Homes. “Doing these additions is a pretty small cost, depending on the home and the complexity of the design, doing all three will be between six and seven per cent more cost of the build which makes it very affordable for people to invest in.”
Constructing with Greener Homes is also an indication you will be receiving a good manufactured home as they make a prediction of the energy consumption and the energy efficiency of the home before they start construction, leaving little room for error for when a third-party company verifies the home of it predicted efficiency when completed. Adding energy efficiency technology to your home also has the benefit of higher mortgage insurance return. Greener Homes is available for more information including walkthroughs of their existing energy-efficient and net-zero homes, along with previous customer feedback.
