TC Legend’s First Spec House: Sneak Peek of ‘Cascade’

by | Jul 12, 2022

Written by Nicole Miller

For the first time in over 10 years, TC Legend Homes has had the opportunity to build our very own spec home!

We are excited to announce that it will be completed and ready to sell within a couple weeks’
time!

This lovely forest bungalow located in Sudden Valley, named Cascade, features our typical SIPs and ICF construction, energy efficient techniques and solar array creating a Net-Zero house that can also power an electric vehicle.

It has 1400 square feet of living space and a 240 square foot garage, with a total of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

The extra-large bridge driveway can park an additional 3-4 cars or has ample room to work and play!

As always, this home is heated by a Chiltrix CX34 air-to-water heat pump and two fan coil units for added comfort. The heat pump also provides air conditioning in tandem with the Fantech Hero 250H-EC heat recovery ventilator (HRV). The envelope is vapor sealed and the window are triple paned with Low-E coatings for extra energy efficiency.

For superior indoor air quality, Cascade features an HRV system with added HEPA filters, low/no VOC
finishes throughout, FloorScore rated solid bamboo floors, and all electric appliances and heating.

We anticipate Cascade to perform exceptionally well like all of our other homes and obtain Built Green
4-Star rating, EPA Indoor AirPLUS certification, EPA Energy Star certification and Department of Energy
Zero Energy Ready Home rating.

So far, the house has received a 0.45 air changes per hour envelope seal, which far exceeds the Passivehaus standard.

Other home details include, EnergyStar rated appliances, induction cooktop, WaterSense rated
plumbing fixtures, zero-threshold shower on main floor, tub/shower combo on lower level, lots of
natural daylight, south facing windows, solid bamboo flooring throughout, bright white interior, locally
milled raw edge cedar plank on the driveway railing, asphalt roofing, cedar plank entry accent siding, tile
entry, tile bathrooms, river rock tile shower floor, exposed beams, vaulted ceilings, heat pump dryer.

If you are interested in purchasing or touring Cascade, please reach out to us to through the “Contact
Us” page on our website or keep watch for our Redfin/Zillow/Trulia ad which will release in the next
couple of weeks!
