After searching all over Chico for over a year we came across Shastan Homes. What a refreshing experience it was to find a builder that puts a home together the way they should be. The experience and pride of the builder shows in the attention to detail that is in every model they build. Shastan Homes come with a complete solar system on each home that makes your power bill with PG&E very low! How low? Well our 3107 sq. ft. home had a power bill of $59.00 including the gas bill! We have been in our Shastan home for a year now, and enjoy the quiet setting of the homes along with the great features we enjoy each and every day.
It is exciting to own home that so completely utilizes leading edge “green”, energy efficient technology. The solar panels on my home are my “little money makers”. It is really fun to watch my electric meter spin backwards as the solar panels produce most of and sometimes more electricity than I need to power my home on a daily basis. I find that the energy efficient appliances, extra ceiling and wall insulation, whole house fan and energy efficient windows all do their part to dramatically reduce the amount of energy needed to power my house.

This letter is regarding our experience with Shastan homes. We decided to build a house with Shastan Homes around August 2009. We signed a contract in October 2009, the permits were ready around December, and the house started construction around January. It was completed in mid June 2010. We chose Shastan homes after visiting the model homes in Chico. CA. We were impressed with the architectural design, and energy efficiency features. We were especially impressed of the quality of the work and attention to details. Also the good communication we had from the beginning with Jay, Holli, the architect Frank and Beau.
