These are the superior construction specifications you can expect in every Heritage Home. Certain features you choose may change or improve these minimums. We set high standards when selecting the materials and products used in every home, and we are proud of them.

PLANS: Complete building plans are included along with the suggested basement or foundation and garage plans for the on-site construction work and for your use in obtaining financing.

LAMINATED BEAMS: 1-3/4” x 9-1/4” laminated beams run the entire length of the home for both the rim joists and the center structural beam. After the house is set on the foundation or basement, the center beams of each modular are bolted together with 1/2” steel bolts.

FLOORS: Floor joists are 2" x 10" #2 select hem Fir 16" on center. The floors are 3/4” tongue and grooved oriented strand board (OSB), glued and nailed to the joists.

WALLS: All load bearing walls are built with 2 x 4 or 2 x 6 studs at 16” on center. The outside walls are sheathed with 3/8” oriented strand board for strength and as an air barrier and is applied with both nails and adhesive.

ROOFS: Roofs are framed with 2 x 4 engineered trusses to satisfy all snow load requirements with 15/32” oriented strand board. Shingles are 30 year. Fiber Glass Architectural shingles with a 30 year warranty are applied over a double layer of 15lb. asphalt impregnated felt, or self-sealing membrane. Eave overhangs are 24" and gable end overhangs are 16".

SIDING: Low maintenance and durable vinyl dutch lap siding. Backed with a lifetime guarantee, be assured that you’ll never paint the exterior of your Heritage Home. Also available as a design feature is a Hardi-Plank that is made from Portland cement, ground sand and wood cellulose fiber. This product holds paint extremely well and will not rot or delaminate. Other design features include western red cedar 1x8 lap siding, spruce log siding or the option of stucco on site..

INSULATION: Exterior walls have 3-1/2” of fiberglass batt insulation with a vapor barrier (R-13) between the studs. Then we add 3/8” OSB waferboard sheathing, which acts as an air barrier and adds structural integrity. Next, the exterior of the walls is sheathed with 3/4” rigid foam insulation with a foil face. Our rigid foam is Celotex brand Super Tuff-R, a glass-reinforced polyisocyanurate with an R-5.6 rating. With the rigid foam, our standard wall has an R-value of over R-20. The attic insulation is highly efficient cellulose insulation blown in to average an R-40. Even more insulation is available with our Superinsulation System, which gives you R-25 walls and an R-50 attic.

ELECTRICAL: A 200 amp panel box with 40 full size breaker spaces is wired and included. Wiring is grounded and light fixtures, smoke detectors and bath fans are installed. Bath, kitchen and exterior outlets have GFI protection and brushed nickel fixtures..

WINDOWS: Are Gerkin as standard and are vinyl framed with the overall window performance U-value of .32.

EXTERIOR DOORS: The front door and other exterior doors, including the optional French Patio Doors, are made of warp-free steel, with a wood thermal break, urethane foam insulation, and adjustable thresholds. The vinyl frame patio doors have 1” low “E” insulating glass.

PLUMBING: All water lines are rigid copper stubbed through floor, while waste and vent piping is DWV Schedule 40 PVC plastic. Shower and tub/showers have Moen pressure balancing valves for anti-scald protection. The kitchen sink and lavatories have single lever Moen valves and PVC corrosive-resistant sink waste traps. The water closets are Briggs brand.

HEATING: Our standard design calls for the furnace and duct work to be completed on site. Registers, boots and return air grilles are installed through the floor for basement connections.

INTERIORS: All interior walls and ceilings are gypsum drywall that is textured orange peel and painted at our factory using Sherwin Williams Beige. Rounded drywall corners are standard on all outside corners and on the window returns. The ceilings have a knocked down texture finish and are painted.

MILLWORK: Interior doors are oak, with oak jambs and casing. They are stained and finished by our own employees, using an environmentally safe aniline dye stain that penetrates the wood and brings out the natural wood grain better than solvent-based stains. The wood is sealed and finished with resisthane, a water based polyurethane, that is approximately nine times harder than solvent-based products. Windows have round corner drywall returns with oak sills (oak jamb extensions are available). Jamb extensions, sills, casing and base are oak, available in natural amber, spice or dark priarie heritage.

KITCHENS: Cabinets have solid oak frames and raised panel oak doors. The cabinets are also finished in our factory with the same up-to-date process as we use on the millwork. The cabinets are available in spice, priarie heritage, and natural amber. The cabinets are oak as standard with many varieties of species available. Hickory, rustic hickory, maple, maple shakers, knotty pine, and cherry cabinets are also available along with optional drawer bases, utility cabinets, dishwasher panels, appliance garages, valances, corner cabinets, lazy susans and crown mouldings.

FLOORING: Each home includes Armstrong vinyl and carpeting form Beaulieu. Our vinyl is installed over 1/4" underlayment in the kitchen, baths, entries and laundry areas and perimeter attached. Our standard carpet is installed over 7/16" thick foam pad with options available.

CODES: All Heritage homes are inspected during construction and certified by the Nebraska Public Service Commission, Housing Department to comply with the IRC Building Code, Uniform Plumbing Code, Uniform Mechanical Code and National Electrical Code. Some areas require additional snow loads or local modifications to these codes and Heritage Homes can accommodate these special needs. All construction meets or exceeds the requirements for conventional financing.

WARRANTY: Be sure to ask for your written warranty that includes a limited three year workmanship and material warranty plus a ten year structural warranty. Warranty requests will be handled through your local Builder/Dealer.

These specifications may change because we are constantly researching materials and methods to improve our homes.
