Local green homebuilder helps buyers save green

What do free electric bills and one of the best kept secrets in Highland Village have in common?

From now through July 31, 2010, Sterling Brook Custom Homes, LLC in the Highland Oaks community is running a promotion in which they will pick up the tab for their new homeowner’s electric bills for two full years.

The local custom homebuilder stands behind the “green” homes they produce so much that they are putting their money where their mouth is. 

“Since Sterling Brook builds homes to exceed both Energy Star and Green Build North Texas standards, we can proudly offer to pay your electric bill for the first two years of ownership of one of our custom homes,” said Russ McWilliams, co-owner of Sterling Brook Custom Homes.

Sterling Brook has over 20 years of experience in design and construction in North Texas.

In recent years, the idea of green building has become extremely popular, as people began to look more closely at how they affect their environment. 

At its core, green building is the concept of using existing materials in resource-efficient ways.

Wayne Atkins, co-owner of Sterling Brook Custom Homes, said that they take a whole-house approach of Green Building to create a High Performance Home.  In other words, “Green Build and High Performance” go hand in hand for the company.

A High Performance home starts with a good design and the proper construction techniques.  It is extremely difficult to make a poorly designed home energy efficient, said McWilliams.

“We are dedicated to providing our clients with the ultimate in High Performance Luxury homes through sophisticated designs coupled with energy efficient construction.

“Energy efficiency is the core of a Sterling Brook High Performance home. This will ultimately result in lower utility usage which means lower monthly bills, fewer greenhouse emissions, and an overall more comfortable home,” said Atkins.

McWilliams said that the strength of their company is in its ability to work with clients through the entire design/build process.  In doing this, customers receive the best possible solutions for their home while keeping the project on time and within budget. 

“We can build on your lot or one of ours,” added McWilliams.

Highland Oaks is best described as a “boutique community”, with 36 out of 40 lots available, and is the first “green” neighborhood in Highland Village.

Sterling Brook’s model home is open Saturdays 10-6 and Sundays 12-6 at 3005 Mulholland, left on Saddlebrook off of FM 2499, just 2 blocks north of FM 407 in the Highland Oaks subdivision.
