#4 Livwell Homes


Livwell Homes is a full service design-build company, focusing on the most modern and efficient construction methods available. The result is a culmination of functionality, longevity, low-maintenance, smart, green, and healthy home themes.

This home is constructed on 70 helical piers, encased in 24” thick concrete grade beams. The first floor is a 6” reinforced polished concrete slab with in-floor radiant heat. The second floor deck features a “live” roof and floating porcelain tile system. Structural steel and commercial framing allows for broad, open spaces and large window openings in the kitchen/living room areas.

The windows are high-efficiency, triple pane, 100% aluminum featuring “lift slide”, “tilt turn” operation. Walls are insulated with closed-cell foam and all studs are thermally broken with 1.5” foam board. The standing seam steel roof was designed with no valleys to increase longevity. Thermally-modified ash siding has the rot resistance and structural stability of teak wood, featuring a 3/4” rain-screen and “snapon” fastener-less system for extended durability.

Thermostats, door locks, garage doors, lighting, security, blinds, and audio will all be smartphone and tablet operable. The fireplace features reclaimed brick from a historic building and a custom steel surround. Rooms were designed with vaulted ceiling spaces to allow for an open and inviting feel.
