Itâs a first in Palm Beach County, maybe even in the entire country. The momentous accomplishment is the completion of Couture Lifestyle Homeâs award-winning, green-certified luxury home in Old Palm Golf Club. Rarely, if ever, has a home this size been built to these standards. Located on a beautiful, one-acre lot in our Custom Estates neighborhood, the 7,467-air-conditioned-square-foot Couture home achieved its green certification through the prestigious National Association of Home Builders. Earning the certification is a rigorous process that examines everything from the homeâs indoor air quality to the manufacturing of the materials. âWe designed the home to take advantage of the north-south orientation,â said Todd Ullom, Couture Homesâ co-founder. âWe relocated more than a dozen trees rather than simply clearing the lot.Â We focused on making the home very energy efficient by including larger soffits to shield the glass from the sun, using double-pane low-e windows, and sealing the attic with foam insulation â all of which had a dramatic effect on the cooling load. Itâs a balanced, tight, extremely efficient home. Plus, itâs really beautiful.â Amazingly, the home was built with world-class craftsmanship in only 165 daysâthree times faster than the norm. Of course, there were no compromises in quality because Couture follows a highly disciplined, quality-assurance program and works only with elite craftsmen.
