Available immediately, the 2014 Balance Metro's features include a spacious and livable great room, with clerestory windows that wash its 16' ceilings with natural light and generous sliding glass doors to maximize views. Motion sensor water-saving faucets, triple-paned energy efficient windows, WiFi enabled thermostats, zoned heating and cooling, and sophisticated air filtration systems are standard and create an extraordinary living experience. Optional features include electric car plug-in hubs and wireless multi-room Sonos(R) sound systems. All Blu homes use proprietary steel framing systems that elevate their strength above other premium homes and support soaring ceilings and expansive walls of windows. Blu homes are completed on site in half the time of a conventional premium home and use two layers of insulation, sophisticated energy modeling, high efficiency heating and cooling systems, heat recovery ventilation and sustainable materials to conveniently offer customers a home of impressive environmental performance and quality. Like all Blu homes, the Balance Metro also comes with a complete suite of homebuilding services, including personalized design by world-class architects, and dedicated project management. Blu Homes offers customers a "one-stop" building experience that is far simpler, faster and more enjoyable than custom traditional building.
