That’s a fair question to ask.

Our answer:  Tartan homes are built better, look better and live better than other homes on the market today. But we don’t simply make that claim. We demonstrate it with very specific ways in which a Tartan home delivers more value on the biggest investment you’ll ever make.

Uniquely Tartan


Smooth Ceilings Throughout

All Tartan homes feature 9′ smooth finish ceilings on the main floor, for brighter rooms and a more spacious and classic look.


More Light

Every Tartan home features larger windows on all levels.  Increasing the natural light in your home will save electricity and make you feel better physically and psychologically.


Contemporary Kitchens

Our locally-crafted kitchens feature oversized islands, 40″ upper cabinets, pot lighting, a built-in fridge look, soft-close drawers & much more.


Better Basements

Our basements are warmer and drier thanks to R10 foam board insulation under the floor and are brighter with larger & more windows.Unfinished areas are fully drywalled (no mud or tape) with full height 3″ rigid foam insulation and batt insulation.


More Storage

Every Tartan home features more and better storage than other builders. From walk-in closets to mudrooms and laundry rooms—our cabinets let you keep everything in its place.


Energy Efficiency

Protecting you and your family from the elements, and reducing your energy bills by 25-30% in the process—is why all Tartan homes are built to meet the rigorous most current ENERGY STAR® standard for energy efficient new homes.

Superior Construction

At Tartan, our idea for building better homes is really quite simple: raise the bar on specifications and construction. That’s why the standard features and finishings you’ll find in every Tartan home go well beyond what the vast majority of builders consider the norm. Like 40-year architectural shingles, a higher level of insulation, 9’ main floor ceilings, and taller upper kitchen cabinets. We only accept and use the best materials, and only work with tradespeople whose commitment to quality matches our own.
