Peoria Home Builder for 85 Years
Blume Construction LLC has been a part of the Central Illinois community since 1930.
This year marks our 85th year of building homes in Peoria IL.
The Peoria Journal Star recently featured an article about the progress Illinois has made in energy-efficiency standards. As the local leader in energy-efficient homes, Blume Construction was chosen to comment on the topic. Blume has been focused on affordable, energy-efficient homes since the energy crisis of the 1970s. While many in the industry are fighting the new requirements, Blume homes remain “better-than-code” and can save homeowners thousands. Read the full article here.
From a grateful letter we received about how our construction keeps utility bill reasonable year round:
Now that we have had an opportunity to live in the house for a few months, including part of the winter, I am pleased to note that the utility bills have been quite reasonable. No unpleasant surprise about utility bills generally pleases a customer. Indeed, our personal appraisal of the quality of the construction have been fully satisfactory, making it a pleasure to live in the house you built.
From another customer testimonial:
The high temperature here today was -3. Per our thermostat setting, the temperature in the house was 70 degrees. At 7:30am, the thermostat rolls back to 60 degrees while we are at work and nobody is home. I have been home and working in the basement, so I can hear the furnace each time it runs and have been paying attention to it. I know this is hard to believe, but the furnace did not run one time all day!
Many have the misconception that an energy efficient home means a more expensive home. This is just not true! Blume Construction builds homes that are solid and well insulated. Even our 6,000+ square foot homes need only one furnace and one A/C. Take a look at utility bills from Blume Construction built homes.
We would be happy to talk to you more about our construction and energy efficient options for building. Blume Construction was practicing “green” even before it was popularized.
Live Better in a Blume Home!
Custom. Quality. Efficient.
When we say we build quality, energy efficient homes, we can prove it! At Blume Construction, we take pride in the fact that we are third generation family-owned Peoria home builders. We use some of the best talent around to build each and every one of our new homes.
Blume Construction insists on 2×6″ exterior wall construction, steel let-in bracing, steel beam support and traditional framing techniques with solid dimensional lumber. We do not use “modern lightweight” construction techniques, we don’t feel the word “lightweight” should be involved when it comes to the structure of your home!
We are dedicated to providing our customers with an enjoyable building experience. The more you know about the process, the more you can sit back, relax and enjoy! We build from your plan or ours; the average build time is between 4 1/2 to 6 1/2 months.
