Pathway to Affordable Luxury

Written by Don Sandford

Architecturally designed homes

Buyers will have access to architecturally designed homes. Not tract or cookie cutter but thoughtfully curated homes designed for the future. Designs that seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor living. Modern designs with open plans. New better materials that are more fire, flood and insect protected. Visualize homes that are very cost-efficient NetZero homes without conventional utility bills. The houses of tomorrow will be very space efficient, multifunctional and will be a reflection of residents’ values and interests. Designed to be a sanctuary where you can retreat to work, live and play. The digital Revit design is fully integrated with manufacturing and assembly. We are undertaking a journey to reduce the design/build cycle from 6-9 months to 2-3 months and to reduce the cost by 25% thus allowing Enclave homes to be more affordable and yet high quality with a luxury look and feel



Enclave has partnered with bespoke search engines to provide a continuous flow of new warrantable commercially available products for use in our homes. We are identifying new materials, products, components, building methods and market research for the best new ideas and trends.

We will identify and act upon opportunities to reduce cost by eliminating antiquated steps in the building process and whereby dramatically reduce times, waste, and the dependency on trades. We are also focused on increasing the affordable value gain of homes through innovation such as multifunctional spaces and effortless digital technologies.



We are building a sustainable company, with due consideration for planetary heath and corporate financial success.

The first area we are attacking is to find ways of reducing and ultimately eliminating the operating cost of our homes. This is being achieved with better building envelopes, efficient HRV systems, healthy indoor air quality, and sustainable energy generation.

Regional sourced products with low carbon footprints, sustainable DNA, will be given priority.



Innovation is bringing many multifunctional and multi-beneficial products to market.

For example digital switchable glass is now available as a replacement for conventional blinds. The system can also provide UV/IF protection, lower energy costs, solar energy generation and can also provide a projection screen resulting in greater space utilization.

Architectural robotic products are now commercially available to aid in making rooms more multifunctional as flex rooms reducing overall space requirements. Four-in-one flex rooms combine an office, guest room, fitness center into one instantly convertible space.



This is all about cost and time reduction and elimination. A different building methodology will eliminate steps or reduce their impact on time and cost. This involves rethinking the design, floor plans and multifunctionality of the home.

For example, one floor living is trending in all age categories as people pursue a greater interest in essential living, a greater focus on experiences over possessions, building homes without basements eliminates unwanted space and the extra costs of construction and developing the basement into finished space. The elimination of stairs results in more useable space on the main floor living space and better integration with outdoor living spaces. This also allows footings to be replaced with alternative systems such as screw piles that are structurally sound and rapidly installed.

New builds can now benefit from the integration of roof tiles with solar panels installed as a single system. Modular magnetic tiles are now available that are sustainable, allow for rapid installation, swappable, highly durable, lower cost and less trades skill.
