Diamondhead's High Efficiency Energy Home comes equipped with the following features:

  • An insulated, steel reinforced concrete slab is the strongest, most energy efficient way to build a home.

  • State-of-the-art electric cooktops use 1/2 the electricity of traditional electronic cooktops.
  • The Marathon Water Heater is considered the best in the industry and is guaranteed for life.
  • LED lighting uses 80% less electricity and produces 90% less heat than incandescent lighting and uses half the electricity of fluorescent lighting.
  • Sealed, direct vent gas fireplaces are the most energy efficient fireplaces available.
  • Radiant barrier decking reduces attic temperatures 20% in the summer, resulting in extended roof life, and reduced energy costs.
  • The master bedroom closet is a storm room built to FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) standards.
  • Enclosed easy access attic storage.
  • Each home is wired for a standby generator that provides electricity in the event of a power failure.


 

We fell in love with the people in Diamondhead the first time we visited. The day we retired, we moved right out of Texas and right into Heaven. Now we have green mountains, wildlife, four seasons and loads of friends. Would we do it all over again? You bet!
