Newest Architectural Products

Posted by Matthew Teague on Thu, Dec 08, 2011
So this is one of my favorite times of the year, when everyone comes out with their predictions and evaluations on the best products, trends, and ideas in our business.  Here is the 2011 product review by Architectural Record: hhttp://archrecord.construction.com/products/productreports/2011.asp  Now some of these products are not directly related to the residential construction, remodeling and renovation business. However, you will see these ideas translated into residential styles and trends over the next few years.

House Designs, Renderings

Posted by Matthew Teague on Fri, Dec 02, 2011

 Many of our clients spend a lot of time with us designing a home that will have the aesthetic, functional and livability features that they have always wanted. However, seeing a house plan in two dimensions on a piece of paper is dramatically different than seeing it built.  To help in this process, our team can provide detailed renderings of the interior and exterior of the home, to include  a virtual interior view.   Here are some plans we did recently for our customers so they can better visualize the finished product.

West Dennis Project, New Home

Posted by Matthew Teague on Thu, Dec 01, 2011
So here is an update on our new home project in West Dennis. With the great weather over the last few weeks, we have really been able to make some nice progress. The siding crew was on site for the last 2 days and finished up this afternoon.  What a difference, it is really starting to come together and look like a home!

Residential Green Construction

Posted by Matthew Teague on Wed, Nov 30, 2011

     Over the last several years, REEF has been asked to look into various "green" consruction materials, systems, and techniques.  Often times, after intense research, consultation with experts, and a common sense assessment, we have found that although many of these products and concepts are innovative, environmentally responsible, and efficient, many of them are still unproven, and the ultimate decision comes down to cost and return on investment.  See this article from Investopedia regarding assessing green residential construction http://www.investopedia.com/articles/mortgages-real-estate/10/green-home.asp#axzz1fC1HRKks
