Home building is a science, but it is also an art. The Smith & Robertson folks are artists.

What is amazing about Smith & Robertson is that they start with the same elements for each house—foundation, roof, walls, maybe a Timberpeg package—and finish with a home that is unique and perfectly suited to its owners.

We love the fireplace in our great room. All the stone came from our property, and the black walnut mantle came from a tree lost to site preparation. When some people said we couldn’t use native materials, Smith & Robertson and Cameron Thomas found a way to make it work. We couldn’t be happier with the results.

With all the energy efficient construction techniques used in our home, we expected it to be very comfortable, and it is. Having chosen a geothermal heat pump, we expected utility bills to be less than in our previous home, and they are—typically a little more than $100 per month. What really surprised us, though, is how peaceful and quiet these features make the house. We have to open a window to hear the birds.

Our visits to our builder in Charlottesville have been intensive, marathon decision making days but well worth the effort! We chose a creative, thoughtful designer/builder who is also fun to work with.
