A stackable washer and dryer saves a significant amount of space in your laundry room. This leaves more space for cabinets, countertops and your kids stinky clothes. 

HERS Score, Lower is Better


People usually want to score high. When it comes to a HERS score, lower is better. The lower the number, the more energy efficient your home is. DB Homes averages 56 on the HERS scale! We provide energy efficient testing on every new home we build.  

What is a HERS Score and why is it important? For more information, click or copy & paste the link below into your browser:


A HERS Index Score can tell you so much about a home you are thinking of buying. Heating, cooling and water heating constitute the largest cost of homeownership outside of the mortgage loan. The HERS Index Score will tell you how well the home performs energy-wise. The HERS Report will outline the energy features of the home and the expected cost of utility bills.

It will also provide you with invaluable information about the existing home you live in, like how efficiently it’s operating and where you can make modifications for greater energy savings. When you're selling your home, a low HERS Index Score can command a higher resale price. And when you’re buying a home, you can anticipate the costs of energy bills and efficiency upgrades.


Did You Know, DB Homes Can Also Stick Build Your Home?

Did you Know that DB Homes builds Stick Framed homes also? Click the link above to see a stick framed roof on a home we are currently building over looking the Yough Lake.  DB Homes was built on the modular home concept but for reasons such as access to the building site, size of the lot, etc.  we aren't always able to build modular but that doesn't mean that DB Homes can't build your home.   We are still able to get you into your dream home by shifting everything to the stick building process.   We still offer the same finishes and options and typically are able to get you into your home in about 6 - 8 months (depending on the floor plan).  

Give your kitchen a vintage look by adding accent cabinets. In this kitchen they used a white hutch cabinet design and tied it in with a white oven hood. This kitchen looks like it belongs in an old farm house.

Walk Up Attic


Do you need lots of storage? It's ok to admit you go overboard with Christmas decorations. We do too.  Consider adding a walk up attic to your home design!

2017 Design Trend – Navy is the new black



Whether you're looking to accent your room or update your kitchen cabinets, navy blue will be the preferred alternative to black in 2017. A modern twist with a traditional feel, navy blue pairs well with practically any color scheme, and lends mystery to a space without making it feel small (as black sometimes does).
