People like to work with Lexar Homes because we are local, our home plans are beautiful and our pricing is affordable. Then they hear about our energy efficient features and it’s like icing on the cake,” says Bob Hollis, co-owner, Lexar Homes.

Lexar Homes, the premier on-site builder in the northwest, announces new, energy efficient building practices that will result in long-term savings for the consumer. Lexar Homes is one of the first volume builders in the Northwest to build homes with a focus on energy-efficiency, sustainability and healthier indoor air quality.
Lexar's new direction stems from consumer demand for affordable options in sustainably built, energy-efficient homes. James Moen and Bob Hollis, co-owners of Lexar Homes, find that more than ever people are concerned with how a home performs, as well as how it is built. "People like to work with us because we are local, our home plans are beautiful and our pricing is affordable. Then they hear about our energy efficient features and it's like icing on the cake," say Hollis. "We teach people, 'If you saw $20 bills floating through your home and out the window, you'd figure out how to keep them in. That's the focus on how we build our homes--to keep the money in," he adds.
As part of their new approach, Lexar Homes has adopted an "above code," philosophy. Current Washington state building code does not require many of the energy efficient features Lexar Homes includes in their standard package, including Energy StarTM rated windows and sustainable, healthier insulation. Lexar has learned through building science technology that a sustainable building approach and "above code" philosophy is the best for consumers and the environment. The costs for these improvements will actually provide a monthly return on investment in energy savings to the home owner.
