Energy Smart Builder

The energy use of a home over a lifespan is one of the most important issues to address. Envy Homes is on the forefront of building energy-smart homes with features that increase comfort while reducing energy use. As a leading energy- efficient homebuilder in the community, we utilize a number of methods to ensure energy efficiency.

With high-performance windows, energy- efficient lighting and appliances, and effective insulation, an energy-smart Envy built home can save homeowners hundreds of dollars annually in utility and maintanence costs. Consequently, the value of an energy-smart home increases.

Envy Homes offers renewable energy opportunities in the form of geothermal, solar, and kinetic technologies.

Green Builder

Our mission is to build with quality and excellence while making a commitment to the future. Envy Homes applies green practices and expert craftsmanship in every step of the construction process. Instead of cutting corners, we cut waste. We start with smart design and source materials regionally.

By minimizing construction waste and optimizing environmentally friendly materials, Envy Homes integrates design and innovative construction practices to create a sustainable home that is built to last.

We are dedicated to changing the impact of the home construction industry on the environment while delivering results that appeal to both the aesthetics and the environmental concerns of each of our clients.

“Just got done building our forever home with Dave Nash and Envy Homes. This journey has been a great experience from the very beginning. Dave is a stand up honest builder! The individual trade workers that Dave uses are fantastic, very exceptional craftsmanship. Everyone who watched our build and friends who come over all say what an exceptional quality build we have. I would completely recommend Envy homes. And the ladies in the office who manage all the day to day events are the best!”

“I would like to extend a huge thanks to Dave Nash and Envy Homes as my general contractor and builder for my home. From day one through closing they have made the process very easy and completed phases of the project in a timely manner. When Dave says something will get done he means it. He always keeps to his word. He is very professional and you will feel like his top priority. I would highly recommend Dave Nash and Envy Homes to anyone. For any future projects that may come up I will be calling him again. Thank you Dave and Envy Homes for the amazing experience of building a beautiful home!”

“We had a great experience of having Envy Homes build a home for us a year ago. The house is everything we could have hoped for. The attention to detail and the quality of the build are wonderful. A year into living here, and we are still both in love with our space. Neither of us would change a thing. This is especially significant when you live with a Mr. Handyman who is rarely satisfied with anyone else building or creating anything for him. Every aspect of our place is truly special. Dave and his crew were great to work with. Very helpful and responsive to any question or concern.”

“When we decided to move home to be close to family, everyone told us Almont isn’t the easiest place to build a house. There isn’t a better builder out there that knows the area. From day one, Dave made sure we got what we wanted and made sure we were satisfied. He is straight up with his customers and guided us in making many tough decisions. Without Envy Homes, we are not sure we would’ve been able to make our family’s dreams become reality in building our forever home. Thank you again, Dave and the Envy Homes team. ”
