Many builders talk about quality. At Beechen & Dill Homes, quality is our reality. Our high performance homes are better built, more comfortable and durable, and more energy-efficient. From the moment you enter one of our homes, we try to exceed all of your expectations, delivering unparalleled quality, and inspiring security and confidence.

Every Beechen & Dill home includes an Environments for Living® certification, guaranteeing its energy efficiency, and increasing its comfort and durability. EFL has energy-saving features that help you save money – especially during our frigid winters! And EFL may even provide you with potentially greater resale value!

The Environments For Living program provides a rigorous set of requirements for homebuilders. It’s a cutting edge program based on “building science”, which treats the home as a “system of systems” that work together. From the construction process, which includes the installation of low-E glass windows, top-grade insulation, foundation sealing, and airtight construction, to the use of right-sized HVAC systems, internal moisture management, and third party testing, every Beechen & Dill home is designed to give you a home you can be proud of.

In addition, our homes have exceptional HERS ratings. The HERS (Home Energy Rating System) was developed by the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) for inspecting and calculating a home’s energy efficiency, and determining if it meets energy efficiency guidelines. It identifies a home’s energy performance compared to a standard home.


What the Numbers Mean…

  • The lower a home’s rating, the more energy efficient it is. (Each point below 100 represents a 1% improvement in overall energy performance.)
  • The HERS Reference Home is awarded a rating of 100 on the HERS Index.
  • A typical existing home earns a rating of 130.
  • Beechen & Dill homes average 58 on the HERS Index. Which means they are 42% more efficient than the HERS Reference Home… and may save you thousands in energy costs in a year!


As a result of our dedication to building high performance homes, you get a home that hosts cutting-edge design, superior energy efficiency, and first-class craftsmanship. Above all, you know that Beechen & Dill aimed at nothing short of excellence in building your dream home.
