Custom Home Builder Bend Oregon

g6Consider Panterra Homes a partner in planning and evaluating the plans for your new home. Some ideas work well others yield little for the expense. We can work with your designer to achieve the most cost efficient and desirable design for you. Don’t have a designer or architect? Let us refer a few that have worked well for others. We can develop preliminary budgets for any or all component and will be happy to consider a “fixed” or a “cost plus” contract or a combination thereof being a “cost plus but not to exceed” contract.

Planning a custom home is more than blue prints. It also must incorporate material staging, landscape and site grading needs, course of construction neighborhood appeasement and allow time for each customer to consider sample finish materials and color selection.

We may be able to offer up to a 10-year warranty, however service calls and performance discussions are a part of our job.

Green Living

Being a “green builder” is more than just being a Certified Green Building Professional and member of the Energy Trust of Oregon. It’s a philosophy that begins with site planning and home orientation, material selection and use, minimization of waste but even more important, the result is a better performing, longer lasting product that is sensitive to environmental considerations, resource economization and which allows for inclusion of future innovation.

Some of the techniques we recommend include:

Passive Solar – orientation of the home on the site, placement and size of windows, depth of eave overhangs, exterior colors.
Active Solar – install or plumb for hot water solar assist.
Landscaping – density or placement of trees, foundation shrubs, defensive fire space, xero-scaping.
Material usage – utilizing best practice framing techniques, SIPS panels, recycled materials.
Heating – placing ductwork in conditioned space, using 95% efficient furnaces or two stage heat-pumps.
Ventilation – negative pressure sealed crawl spaces, whole-house fans, thermo-stacking designs.
Plumbing – grey water recycling.
Finishes – concrete counters, recycled or rapidly renewable flooring such as bamboo.
