Customizable Floor Plans and Energy Efficiency Make Advantage Home Builders Stand out From the Crowd



Last month, we stopped by Advantage Home Builders' new model in Las Calinas to learn a little more about President of Advantage Home Builders Doug Griesemer and why Advantage Home Builders has been so successful in Northeast Florida. This month, Doug is showing us what sets their company apart from their national competition. Not only is every Advantage Home Builders’ home unique and built specifically to the homeowner’s wants, they are also on the forefront of energy efficiency technology!

Unlike national companies, Advantage Home Builders customizes their basic floor plans to fit customer’s wants and needs. They listen to their customers and are able to change anything from the elevation of a home to the square footage. One home Doug showed us in Las Calinas had the floor plan blown up so the customer could expand their bedrooms and change the layout of their laundry room. Because of their ability to customize, no home plan is duplicated with Advantage Home Builders! 

Next, Doug showcases one of Advantage Home Builders’ homes currently under construction so we can cover their energy efficiency program. As Doug explains in the video above, Skytech inspects every Advantage Home Builders’ home to make sure all of the insulation is properly installed and that there is no penetration to the exterior of the home. Their second inspection takes place after the home has been finished and they conduct an in-depth blow test on the home’s ductwork. After the inspections, Skytech’s scores and information are sent to the government to determine the HERs rating of the home. To receive HERs certification, your home must rate 77 or below. Doug believes the home in Las Calinas will come in with a score around the high 60s or low 70s. The more energy efficient the home, the lower the utility bills!

Advantage Home Builders’ prices begin in the $130,00s and up to $1 million in various communities. Homes range in size from 1,200 square feet to 10,000 square feet.
