The Tradd platform is essentially a classic New England “Cape” raised to a full two stories, with the second level organized under the roofline. It reflects both our experience with early American architectural design and our commitment to optimized, affordable performance standards.
A basic Tradd is about 2000 square feet, has two to four bedrooms, and usually features two or three full baths and a half-bath. But we can easily integrate additional bedrooms, baths, and floor space. Other options include covered or screen porches, different types of dormers, various entry styles, attached garages, and one-level connectors. This interior can be designed with vaulted spaces and private nooks, all while meeting our stringent goals for efficiency. It’s also the platform that can feature exposed timber framing throughout. So you can have the timelessness of timber-frame design while meeting the latest energy-efficiency standards.
Every Tradd is designed as one integrated whole, including:
1. Basic standard specifications to achieve energy efficiency and air-quality standards.
2. Kitchen and bath fixtures that can be incorporated into pods manufactured off-site.
3. Doors and trim that are designed to combine high insulating value with ready access to mechanical systems.
4. Optional add-on structures, including porches and garages.
