What does "The Extras Are Standard" mean?

In the residential housing market, it is common for new home construction prices to refer to a base price of a home that does not include the options that a consumer would expect for the cost. Examples of these options include granite countertops, tile showers, upgraded stainless appliances, quality designer cabinets, and real hardwood floors. With over 25 years of home building experience, Jimmy Nash Homes has identified the options that most clients want in their home and have made those "extras" (with most builders) a standard. In addition, the builder has identified many aspects of a new home that buyers often don't think of but make a difference in the long-term performance and maintenance of a home. Those additional items are also "Standard" at Jimmy Nash Homes. Examples would be a 30-year waterproof warranty on all basements and Andersen 200 Series Low-E windows.

What does "Guild Quality Master Builder" mean?

Guild Quality is a national customer service quality auditor for the home building industry. Jimmy Nash Homes joined Guild Quality voluntarily to receive client feedback from an objective third party.  Most builders in Central Kentucky do not choose to participate and, thus, do not gain this type of feedback from their customers. Guild Quality has surveyed 100% of our clients and reported their findings for public review. The clients are interviewed via phone or online three times: midway through construction, shortly after completion and move-in, and one year after move-in. Jimmy Nash Homes has depended on customer feedback to improve our process, customer experience, and overall quality of homes. Since 2009, Jimmy Nash Homes has been recognized as a "Guild Master" every year due to consistently high ratings for customer satisfaction. 

Are Jimmy Nash Homes energy efficient?

Jimmy Nash Homes is committed to making every home a "HERS Rated" home. HERS refers to the Home Energy Rating System that is in place to measure energy efficiency in all homes. This process requires an audit that begins pre-construction with the home design plans, continues through construction, and is completed when the house is finished. Our builders obtain excellent energy efficiency through building techniques and by choosing the most effective products, including cellulose insulation and Andersen 200 Series Low E windows. Each Jimmy Nash Home is awarded a "HERS" score, which has consistently proven Jimmy Nash Homes are approximately two times more efficient than the average new home and three times more efficient than the average existing home. In 2013, Jimmy Nash Homes was recognized as building the Most Energy-Efficient "HERS Rated” Home in the entire midwest region of the United States. Also, Jimmy Nash Homes lead home builders in the Central Kentucky area with new homes built with Geothermal HVAC Systems.
