THE ART OF DESIGN<br />

THE BENEFITS OF SCIENCE


WHAT DO WE MEAN BY<br />

Just Better?<br />

Not surprisingly, most home builders strive for<br />

cheaper opposed to better. In fact many home<br />

builder’s struggle just to meet the local code<br />

requirements. Those who take a step further,<br />

build at a slightly higher quality and meet<br />

ENERGY STAR ® standards <strong>of</strong> construction.<br />

<strong>Insight</strong> <strong>Homes</strong> takes our homes to and beyond<br />

ENERGY STAR ® certification. Every <strong>Insight</strong> home<br />

is built to a standard set by the U.S. Department<br />

<strong>of</strong> Energy known as a ZERH certified home.<br />

Less than 1% <strong>of</strong> all builders in the country meet<br />

the ZERH extraordinary levels <strong>of</strong> excellence in<br />

efficiency, build quality, durability, comfort level<br />

and healthy environment. In the pages which follow<br />

you will see how we achieve such a feat and how<br />

it will benefit buyers for years to come.<br />

efficiency, health benefits and customer<br />

service. Our goal is to be the most innovative<br />

home builder in the country, providing a better<br />

product and a better environment for our home owners.<br />

We have spent a lot <strong>of</strong> time enhancing the look <strong>of</strong> our homes –<br />

IT ALL STARTED WITH<br />

An Experiment<br />

What happens when an entrepreneur with<br />

a successful track record in manufacturing<br />

has a home built for himself? It creates a<br />

spark to build a better house!<br />

<strong>Insight</strong> <strong>Homes</strong> founder, Rob Lisle, was<br />

perplexed by the fact that while there<br />

were so many modern building techniques<br />

and materials available, they were being<br />

ignored by most builders. Could it be<br />

cost, difficulty to implement, or just plain<br />

lack <strong>of</strong> desire? To learn why, he started<br />

an experiment:<br />

Build 36 houses, in groups <strong>of</strong><br />

three, to maximize energy<br />

efficiency, structural integrity,<br />

air quality and build time.<br />

<strong>The</strong> result was that each group <strong>of</strong> three<br />

homes improved upon the performance<br />

<strong>of</strong> the previous group.<br />

Even before completion, Rob received<br />

recognition from the Department <strong>of</strong><br />

Energy for building a home significantly<br />

more efficient than specified by<br />

ENERGY STAR ® guidelines.<br />

Innovation didn’t stop at energy<br />

savings – in fact, it continues every<br />

day at <strong>Insight</strong> <strong>Homes</strong>.<br />

Today, <strong>Insight</strong> builds a home that far<br />

exceeds its peers. To this day, no other<br />

area builder can match the performance,<br />

longevity, comfort or cost <strong>of</strong> ownership<br />

provided by an <strong>Insight</strong> Home.<br />

That’s not fluff, just empirical pro<strong>of</strong>.<br />

“Today’s problems cannot be solved if we still<br />

think the way we thought when we created them.” (Paraphrased)<br />

Albert Einstein


THE OBJECTIVES:<br />

HOMES THAT ARE<br />

Amazingly Efficient!<br />

Only a select group <strong>of</strong> the top builders in<br />

the country meet the extraordinary levels<br />

<strong>of</strong> excellence and quality specified by the<br />

US Department <strong>of</strong> Energy guidelines.<br />

“Zero Energy Ready <strong>Homes</strong> like<br />

those built by <strong>Insight</strong> <strong>Homes</strong> are the<br />

home <strong>of</strong> the future, because they live,<br />

work and last longer with incredibly<br />

low or no energy costs. And what’s<br />

exciting for American homebuyers,<br />

they are available today, thanks to the<br />

leading builders across the country.”<br />

Samuel Rashkin<br />

CHIEF ARCHITECT FOR U.S. DEPARTMENT OF<br />

ENERGY BUILDING TECHNOLOGIES OFFICE<br />

Many builders meet the U.S. Department <strong>of</strong> Energy<br />

ENERGY STAR ® standard, but less than 1% meet the<br />

US Department <strong>of</strong> Energy’s stringent Zero Energy<br />

Ready certification.<br />

As the chart below clearly illustrates, a ZERH certified<br />

home dramatically outperforms an ENERGY STAR ®<br />

rated home while making a complete mockery <strong>of</strong><br />

existing homes. Being ZERH certified is more than<br />

just energy savings. This certification ensures an<br />

entirely new level <strong>of</strong> health, comfort, efficiency,<br />

durability and energy savings.<br />

To emphasize this commitment to being better,<br />

newly built <strong>Insight</strong> <strong>Homes</strong> have the above bronze<br />

plaque embedded into the home’s walkway –<br />

now that’s Concrete Pro<strong>of</strong>!<br />

As you shop for a new home, you are<br />

hit with a barrage <strong>of</strong> unfamiliar terms.<br />

From the easy to understand R-value<br />

and SEER rating to the more complex<br />

HERS score and AFUE, home buying<br />

can get overwhelming.<br />

All <strong>of</strong> these acronyms and phrases<br />

explain components <strong>of</strong> the energyefficient<br />

systems in a home, but can<br />

be confusing. <strong>The</strong> truth is that all new<br />

homes are in some way efficient, but<br />

how can you quantify it? Cut through<br />

the clutter and ask for the pro<strong>of</strong> –<br />

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY<br />

Precision Built?<br />

Advanced construction techniques put every<br />

<strong>Insight</strong> Home in a class above what typical<br />

builders <strong>of</strong>fer. For example, our exterior<br />

framing uses 2 x 6 studs instead <strong>of</strong> standard<br />

2 x 4 lumber. We also use sophisticated<br />

panelized wall systems, saving time and<br />

increasing precision. <strong>The</strong>se are just a few<br />

<strong>of</strong> hundreds <strong>of</strong> examples. <strong>The</strong> use <strong>of</strong> cutting<br />

edge science and building techniques makes<br />

an <strong>Insight</strong> Home far superior to anything else<br />

on the market.<br />

“We found the standard features in your<br />

homes are expensive upgrades in your<br />

competitor’s models. <strong>The</strong> superior and<br />

innovative construction that goes into<br />

your homes and the energy efficiency<br />

is second to none.”<br />

Deb and Ken Karpinski<br />

INSIGHT HOME OWNERS<br />

ENGINEERED FROM THE GROUND UP<br />

n <strong>Insight</strong> <strong>Homes</strong> uses a third-party engineer<br />

to certify the footings by performing a soil<br />

bearing capacity test for every home before<br />

the footer is poured. This reduces the<br />

constant settling that occurs in sandy soils.<br />

n Continuous Poured Concrete Foundation<br />

is 3 times stronger than cinder block<br />

construction.<br />

n Panelized ZIP ® Walls that are built in a<br />

factory for better quality and protection<br />

from the elements.<br />

n Advanced Framing with 2 x 6 lumber means<br />

stronger homes, more area for additional<br />

insulation and improved noise control.<br />

n PEX Plumbing with ManaBloc ® System<br />

allows you to shut <strong>of</strong>f water to any faucet<br />

from one easy location without impacting<br />

the rest <strong>of</strong> your plumbing.<br />

n Super Low-E Windows are engineered<br />

to channel water away from the house<br />

and designed to block the majority<br />

<strong>of</strong> the sun’s heat.<br />

capabilities.<br />

n Duct Leakage that is guaranteed below 3%,<br />

which is 8 times better than average.<br />

MORE efficiency by using a second fuel source.<br />

This remarkable system’s CPU constantly adjusts<br />

to determine which fuel (gas or electric) will provide<br />

maximum savings and comfort simultaneously.<br />

This option is so efficient it is designed to pay for<br />

EASY TO<br />

Breathe!<br />

KYLIE’S STORY<br />

CLEANER AIR<br />

<strong>The</strong> EPA states that indoor air quality has<br />

concentrations <strong>of</strong> some pollutants that<br />

are <strong>of</strong>ten 2 to 5 times higher than typical<br />

outdoor concentrations.<br />

Typical HVAC and vacuum systems allow up<br />

to 99% <strong>of</strong> the bad particles we breathe to<br />

pass through the bag and filter, right back<br />

into the air. Our outdoor exhausting central<br />

vacuum and MERV-13 HVAC filter systems<br />

eliminate these particles.<br />

“My name is Kylie. I was born four months<br />

early and only weighed 1 pound, 8 ounces.<br />

I needed to use an oxygen tank for the first<br />

year <strong>of</strong> my life. I spent 2 to 3 months a year<br />

in the hospital with breathing problems<br />

until I was five years old. I didn’t get to<br />

grow up like other kids. I couldn’t run.<br />

I couldn’t play sports. Sometimes it was<br />

just hard to breathe.<br />

According to the US Department <strong>of</strong> Energy<br />

(DOE), every Zero Energy Ready Home has<br />

a comprehensive package <strong>of</strong> measures<br />

to help minimize dangerous pollutants,<br />

provide continuous fresh air, and<br />

effectively filter the air you breathe.<br />

In 2008, we moved into our new <strong>Insight</strong><br />

Home. Since then, my life has changed.<br />

I haven’t been to the hospital. I don’t take<br />

any medication. I can play soccer, go ice<br />

skating and play flute in the school band.<br />

<strong>The</strong>se are things that I couldn’t do before.<br />

My mom says it helps that the air is a lot<br />

cleaner in our <strong>Insight</strong> Home.”<br />

“All I know is that I can do things just<br />

like other kids, and I can breathe!”<br />
