A Coastal Beauty. We find this three-level Deltec, a Windsor model, to be pretty amazing, and not just because of the pneumatic vacuum elevator—although, really, how cool is that! Builder Jim Schneider is particularly proud of the energy rating achieved on this house: they’ve achieved a HERS rating of 49, meaning this house is 51% more efficient than a house built to code!

When Hurricane Sandy slammed the New Jersey coast, the Guerins witnessed the true hurricane resistance of their Deltec: Many nearby properties, even those ‘protected’ behind a bulkhead, suffered significant water and wind destruction. Indeed, the bulkheads themselves were destroyed so as to be useless. The Deltec? The only damage to this family's home was a single turned-up shingle on the roof. blog.deltechomes.... #roundhouse #sandy

Great expectations. This Chesapeake model, at 1496 sq ft, promises all good things: A beautiful bay of windows to enjoy a sweeping panoramic view of the water and mountains; precision-engineered construction delivering maximum energy efficiency; and an array of features that work together, making a Deltec the strongest home you can build in challenging conditions.
