  • This wet weather is very frustrating
  • 2/15/2016
  • Well, we are actually working....just not on updating the website. My apologies but all this wet weather has me really behind in all of my work as I try and get our next home underway. We finally got the 1200 foot long driveway cut in and ready for heavy equipment and the footings poured last Friday....so, Hopefully I will be able to work on the website in the next week or two.

  • Duke Energy HERO+ program
  • 2/12/2015
  • More exciting news for Morningstar Homes..... Duke Energy has implemented a new program for those homes that have some of the best Energy Performance scores. Based on the HERS rating (Home Energy Rating Sytem...completed by independent HERS rater) ...this program recognizes those homes (and Builders!) that are committed to a higher performing home when it comes to energy usage. Most of our homes that we build fall in the 65-56 range of HERS scores which is quite good. Remember, a HERS score is like a golf score....the lower the better. For more information about this program as well as some detailed information about the HERS score...CLICK HERE[http://www.duke-energy.com/mynewhome] for a link to the Duke Energy site.

  • Dear Steve, John and Barbara,
  • Starting a Williamsburg Plan in Briar Chapel
  • 6/25/2014
  • We are really excited to be starting a Williamsburg plan in Briar Chapel. We have been working with a client for several months now "fine tuning" some changes they wanted to make to this plan and we are in the final stages of this now. Our client is another relocation from the Northeast and are looking forward to our warmer weather. For more information on the Williamsburg plan... CLICK HERE[lot-124-briar-chapel/]
  • Several new homes starting
  • 4/08/2014
  • Well, the cold and wet winter weather seems to be behind us and we are finally able to get some projects started that we have been working on. We have a home starting in the Estate section of Chapel Ridge, one in west Raleigh and one in Oxford....all custom homes designed and being built for clients. We also have two clients that we are working with in Briar Chapel and Chapel Ridge that we hope will start in early summer. Stay tuned for more information.
  • Trends and challenges
  • 4/08/2014
  • It seems like the economy may finally be straigtning out...at least that's my opinion.  I have many of our clients ask me what the future may hold for homebuilding so I thought I would put a few of my thoughts down.
