On our first consultation with HCTF, Owners, Tom Owens and Peter Jankowski, convinced us that we had selected the perfect builder/designer. They were very experienced and had trained their entire team on building “High Performance Homes”.  We wanted our home to “belong” on the mountain; but more importantly, we wanted our home to be constructed with lessened environmental impact, with leading-edge, safe and durable materials and construction techniques……..

....Even in the coldest weather, our highest utility bill was only $212. ...checked to see how our power bills compared to other homes in similar conditions.  They told me that for homes of comparable size, the bills were between $400 and $500.

HCTF knew exactly how to build our high-performance home.  We are very fortunate to have found them! Thanks to HCTF, we have a beautiful and comfortable, highly efficient dream home that will be a part of our family – and Roan Mountain for many, many years!   - Former Client
