The durability, economy and energy efficiency afforded by the Tilt-Up method were attractive to the Daugherty family when considering building methods for their new residence.
This 15,000-square-foot project was selected for an award because it is a great example of the growing acceptance of Tilt-Up construction for small scale and residential projects.
Approximately 70 Tilt-Up panels, totaling more than 22,000-square-feet of wall panel, were used to construct the extremely engery-efficient home. The owners estimate that the balance of smart appliances and concrete walls will offer a 30 percent more efficient home than competing residences.
Further, the home has great architectural appeal – both inside and out. With a smooth concrete finish, six structural concrete columns create a unique and inviting entrance and custom stone surrounds the mantels encasing the entire exterior. Even the floors and walls are to be enjoyed. Stone accent walls are coupled with Venetian texture walls with actual imprinted grapevines and leaves, while the floors are a balance of slate deck, stained concrete and custom wood flooring wove with stone inserts.
Precast stone framing is on all windows and doors, demonstrating the effective use of a variety of construction types for accents.
