Maintenance free living makes John one of Little Rock’s premier custom home builders.
Maintenance free living- it’s possible with a Turner home.
No paint, no rotting wood, no cheap deteriorating materials.
Today’s new-home shopper looks for self-sufficient homes, say builders. In the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) “Home of the Future” study, industry experts said low-maintenance interiors are “critical” or “very critical” in today’s new homes. The higher the square footage, the more likely buyers want maintenance-free homes.
Thanks to electronics, today’s new house saves the homeowner time, energy and unnecessary repairs. “A weather indicator tells the sprinkler to not turn on because it’s raining,” “An appliance notifies the homeowner that it needs service before it breaks down. You push a button to put your house in ‘goodbye’ mode to dim the lights and turn down the air conditioner. Controls are simpler, wireless and integrated. Security, lighting, entertainment systems are all connected.”
