United StatesUnited StatesCompany Name: Michael's Homes

Project description

With stunning views of the river, mountains, and wildlife the River Watch Home was voted the 2017 Showcase Home of the Year by the HBA of Greater Chattanooga, TN. This four-bedroom home has an open floor plan with a vaulted great room that opens to the eat-in kitchen that features a walk-in pantry and access to the covered porch. The main level also has a formal dining room, utility room, master bedroom with en-suite, additional bedroom, and full bathroom. The upper level has two additional bedrooms, full bathroom, and a bonus room. The River Watch home is a great showcase of not only quality construction and attention to detail, but how homebuilders like Michael’s Homes, look beyond the aesthetic to provide their Homebuyers a home built with features that run deeper than the surface aesthetics. A number of high-performance wall systems were utilised throughout the home providing lasting comfort and performance for the life of the home.

Key Achievements

  • Michael’s Homes used several VAP products to provide stand out features to attract prospective buyers to buy “not just any home”, but one that was both ascetically pleasing but provided great comfort and lasting value.
  • The home was built on time and on budget, even with trying several new CertainTeed® VAP products for the first time.
  • Michael’s Homes is the only home building in the Soddy-Daisy area that uses AirRenew® Standard on every home.

Key Challenges

Quality is critical to Michael’s Homes value proposition, utilizing numerous CertainTeed® Gypsum products helped Michael’s Homes deliver the desired quality to the homeowner while still meeting the project deadline and maintaining a competitive sale price for the home. The use of CTG® VAP products also delivers lasting quality that the occupant will enjoy for the life of the home.
