We always aim to create homes that feel like sanctuaries, floorplans that feel functional, and select locations that allow you to live the lifestyle you desire.

Our approach to designing a supremely livable home

We love a beautiful home as much as the next person, but at TJH, a well-designed home goes beyond aesthetics. It should respect the character of a community, evoke a sense of belonging, and be adaptable to your needs. To achieve this, we focus on multiple design elements that combine form, function, and flow for a supremely livable home. From window and door placements that optimize natural light, to custom-quality materials and unexpected details, these are some of the architectural and design features at play inside every TJH home.

Custom-quality finishes

In many new homes, it’s not uncommon to have a lot of similar design elements that start to look cookie-cutter. That’s not our style. We’re committed to designing homes with elevated amenities and refined finishes that set our homes apart from other large-scale builders. Instead of run-of-the-mill design, you’ll discover unique touches in every TJH home, from luxury vinyl plank flooring and quartz countertops, to high-end appliances and fixtures that elevate everyday living.

Plans designed with purpose

The right layout can make all the difference in how you live, and a zoned, open-concept floorplan is one of the defining elements of a TJH home. With our layouts, each section of the home feels distinct yet connected, allowing flow and functionality. Whether you’re keeping an eye on the kids while preparing dinner or hosting a gathering, our open-concept floorplans provide the flexibility to stay engaged with everything around you without giving up functional space.

From built-in work spaces for studying to a lounge-worthy loft space, each part of a TJH home is connected and distinct.

Indoor/outdoor spaces

With a TJH home, your living space goes beyond the four walls of your home. That’s why we focus on indoor/outdoor living and carefully consider how your indoor spaces flow to the outdoors. From rooftop decks to interior courtyards, covered patios with fireplaces and sitting areas, or dedicated space for gardening, you’ll find indoor/outdoor living features incorporated into every TJH home. Our goal is to make your home feel like an oasis by creating functional and versatile outdoor spaces that you can enjoy year-round.

Backyard hangs are a must, which is why our homes are built for the indoor-outdoor lifestyle so many homeowners seek.

Exterior styles

We recognize that every homeowner has different tastes and styles. Whether you prefer the simplicity of a modern home or the timeless elegance of traditional-style architecture, we offer a range of exterior styles. We also carefully consider the materials used in our building process to ensure your home is sustainable and can withstand the test of time. This means less upkeep without compromising on the aesthetic appeal of your home.

Every facet of our home designs is influenced by the locations in which we build and the way people live today.

Natural light-filled spaces

Letting in natural light can instantly elevate a home’s overall look and feel. Not only does it create the illusion of an expansive living space, it also makes the home feel warm and welcoming. The benefits go beyond aesthetics—adding natural light can enhance your mood, boost productivity, and even positively impact your health. However, it’s about more than predictable window placement. Our team looks for less obvious ways to bring in natural light. Depending on the plan, options can include high ceilings that make room for double-height windows, skylights, glass-paneled stacking doors, interior courtyards, and more. 

“TJH has the experience and the understanding that the true beauty of a home lies in the design details and using quality products.”

Greg, Product Market Manager for James Hardie

Tjh True Beauty Of A Home
We believe that nothing compares to the feeling of natural light streaming through your home—especially when it comes to making a space feel warm and welcoming.

The difference is in the details. That’s why we stay on top of new design trends and look for ways to incorporate thoughtful and innovative features into every home we build. Whether it’s a spacious kitchen for cooking, an indoor/outdoor living room for relaxed gatherings, or a flexible floorplan for a growing family, designing and building homes that anticipate the needs of future TJH homeowners is at the heart of everything we do.
