Smart Green is the intelligent way to design homes. It achieves superior energy efficiency by using state-of-the-art environmentally friendly design practices and renewable materials.
Building energy efficient and green homes is nothing new to us. In 1987, John Hall, Sr. was named an energy efficient builder for the U.S. Department of Energy for building the first passive solar home in Illinois. We’ve used the lessons we learned from that home in each home we build. Each home we build today is built to exceed many popular energy standards, including Energy Star.
At John Hall Custom Homes, we use the best, most cost effective measures to build our homes to much higher “Green” standards than other builders in the Chicago area. For example: using our Smart Green Practices, building a single family custom home on a 1/2 acre lot has nearly no impact on your carbon footprint. According to research completed by the National Association of Home Builders, when one of our homes is built on an acre of land with our energy saving features and complete landscaping, your home’s carbon footprint is reduced so much that it’s nearly non-existent, due to the use of clean-burning furnaces, clean AC units, and the oxygen given off by the typical landscaped yard. It’s just a smarter way to build a home!
John Hall Homes is an AMAZING team of people who sincerely care about and respect your needs as well as your homebuilding visions. From the moment we started the process on our new home, my husband and I would comment often that seeing the Hall family to discuss our plans was like visiting our own family! They sincerely cared about every detail often commenting to us “We just want you to be happy” and we know now that.. they really meant it!
It was impressive to us that Josh/John or Jessica Hall personally came to the house each day to monitor the building process and would call or text us with any thoughts or updates. We were impressed by various comments made from personal friends and family members during the “pre drywall phase” that that our home construction and especially the attention to details were phenomenal.
It wasn’t just about being beautiful- the construction under that drywall was impeccable!
We were also totally impressed with the trades that were brought in to do the work. How rare that every single person we dealt with throughout our home project was personable, friendly , caring and great fun to work with!
We understand why John Hall Custom Homes has stood the test of time. They care about their clients, they wanted us as the customer to be happy above all else. They build a beautiful but most importantly an “outstanding quality” home.
We hear people talk about regrets with their home builders or how difficult the process was..We are delighted to say it was not us! We would build with John Hall Homes all over again in a heartbeat!
