California Tuscan Style Homes

The Tuscan style of architecture with it’s origins, in the Tuscan region of Italy, are unique and well appreciated. The development of the California Tuscan Style has come to represent the blending of this authentic “Old World” architecture with the conveniences of modern world construction.

One feature that readily distinguishes the Tuscan Style is the choice of windows. Kolbe and Kolbe “Old World Classic” windows crafted in sustainable “Lamboo” materials are just one example matching our passion for creating the California Tuscan style.

There is great art to be found in combining emerging technologies that support green sustainable practices without compromising quality. Isn’t that really the best of both the new and “Old World?”

Green Solutions: While the construction industry has been working for several years with optional Green Certifications, January 1, 2011, California adopted the Cal Green Building Standards as a part of the State Building Code. While several of the materials in these units are 100 percent recyclable all units are manufactured with 25 to 75% recycled material content , minimizing the environmental footprint and maximizing LEED credits.

Energy Star Assemblies are available that provide double the efficiency required to obtain the Energy Star Rating.
