Building a New Home

A New Home's a great way to realize your dreams.

Building a New Home is a great way to get a home that truly reflects the customers personalities, wishes, and dreams. It is a way to start out with the greenest of building components such as the best insulation, the most durable surfaces, the more healthy floorings or the most efficient mechanical systems.

Heritage Builders is a licensed company of experienced and trained master carpenters, knowledgeable in the Building Code and Energy Efficient Construction with over 30 years of experience.

Heritage Builders has been building new homes since 1986. Each home has been uniquely designed and built for specific customers.

While Green is trendy now, Green Building techniques have been employed in our homes since the beginning. Here are some of the features of homes we have built.

  • Custom designed for and with the homeowner.
  • Site considerations for heating, cooling, and views.
  • Insulated walls with tightly sealed air barriers
  • Tightly sealed vapor diffusion retarders
  • Heat recovery ventilators
  • Energy efficient windows.
  • Insulated Basement Walls
  • Sealed band joists
  • Durable trim, often from local sources.
  • Well Ventilated Attics


Heritage Builders is a Full Service Home Builder.

On your behalf, we are the General Contractor, whose job it is to manage all the work of all the subs trades, the materials suppliers, and our own carpenters.

We coordinate all of the thousands of complex details that come together in the project you will call home.

We work hard to ensure that your new home is exactly what you expect.

Today, there are more and better ways to Build Green:

  • Ground Water Heat Pumps for Heating and Cooling
