The leaves are changing but our mission to build High Performance Luxury Homes℠ stays the same. R.E.A. Homes continues to lead the pack as St. Louis, Missouri’s premier luxury custom homebuilder. We incorporate modern design, smart technology, and green building features that ultimately lead to more comfort and luxury in your home.
This fall we continue to celebrate 10 years of custom home building by giving away our latest eBook for free, Custom Not Commodity: Why Custom Homes Are Better for Your Family. Is a custom home right for you and your family? Check out our eBook to learn more about the benefits of our meticulous home building process.
One of our recently completed custom homes was just featured on the front cover of St. Louis Home Magazine – check it out here. Additionally, we have started the pre-construction phase (design and creation of the budget) for some new sold homes in Town and Country, Ladue, and Eureka. Ground breaking is anticipated for early 2018.
We just returned from Austin, Texas, where we received the 2017 Regional Award from CertainTeed. We were recognized as a leader in the mid-west region for one of our High Performance Luxury Homes℠ currently under construction.
Featured Custom Homes
Just a few of our High Performance Luxury Homes℠ currently under construction include the “Healthy Home” in West St. Louis, an energy efficient modern farmhouse and old world European style homes both located in Ladue, Missouri.
We are going above and beyond any nationally recognized healthy home guidelines in an effort to build a healthier home based on the needs of the homeowner. Every ingredient in the home is being reviewed and approved by the client before installation.
We helped do the research to provide a range of healthy product options and the customer made the ultimate decision. They chose:
- Continuous Exterior Insulation made by Thermafiber
- 1×6 tongue and groove all dimensional lumber for the subfloor
- A fluid applied water proofing membrane
CertainTeed AIRRENEW® Drywall. The AirRenew® family of products are the only gypsum boards that actively clean the air. They feature the industry’s first formaldehyde-absorbing technology. This actively removes formaldehyde from the air, converting it into a safe, inert compound, improving indoor air quality for generations.
This 10,000+ sq. ft. home currently has most of the windows and doors installed, the mechanical trades like plumbing/heating and cooling are underway, and the Da Vinci Synthetic slate roof was just installed. The interior of the home will feature curved windows to bring in lots of natural light, a traditional interior design style, and a wonderfully open kitchen designed for a client with a passion for cooking. There will also be a dedicated home theater and elevator.
There will be an elaborate backyard outdoor space including a pool, spa, and covered cabana, a BBQ/grilling center and outdoor kitchen, all connected to a lower level walk out area.
The goal is a healthier home and the result is comfort for the whole family with sustainable luxury features.
Our energy efficient Modern Farmhouse style home features a solar panel system designed by our friends at EFS Solar Energy. This SunPower Equinox ™ solar panel system will help lower our customer’s monthly energy costs. This custom home is expected to be under roof by the end of November and will contain a high-level finish with an attached “mother-in-law” cottage. The clients intend to be empty nesters soon and were seeking a low maintenance, low watering landscaping option. All of the materials they selected in the landscape design are native to Missouri and will ultimately save our clients time and energy.
Old World European
We just recently broke ground on a new Old World European style home in Ladue. The plans for this luxury custom home place as much focus on the indoor environment as the outdoor. The lower level of the home will feature wine storage, a billiards room, a custom pub, and dedicated home theater. The main floor will feature a beautiful gourmet kitchen that opens to a great outdoor space. This outdoor entertainment area will include a large porch with retractable screens, pool, fire pit, and outdoor grilling center. This luxury custom home should be under roof in the spring of next year. Expect more updates!
R.E.A. Homes continues to be active in the community in St. Louis. In an effort to engage with the young minds of the future, we are working closely with the Ladue Education Foundation and Ladue School District. We have begun coordinating for another green house tour with the environmental science class at the Ladue high school. This will give the students a tour of a job site where they will learn more about energy efficiency and solar power.
