During your search for a new home, you may have come across the term Post-Tension Slab. Dorn Homes uses post-tension slabs in every home built in the Prescott area, instead of a conventional concrete slab. Why? Concrete slabs rely on support from the soil below, but in some areas (including Prescott) the soil actively expands and contracts due to moisture changes. This prevents the soil from providing the proper amount of support to the concrete slab that can result in foundation cracks.
Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile military-style obstacle course, and we did it! Well, not all of us. Our brave CEO, Dave Grounds, and VP of Construction, Steve Davis took on the challenge to complete the 2014 Tough Mudder course in Phoenix AZ! Way to go Dave & Steve!

During your search for a new home you have probably noticed a trend towards “green” home building. You know that an energy efficient home can have an impact on the environment, but there are many other added benefits that you may not be aware of.
