Don't Just Build. Build Smart.

For more than 95 years, Drees has designed our homes to give you what you really want - a home that fits your life, now and into the future. We elevate lives, establish neighborhoods and build homes that offer families the lifestyle they desire.


With the latest innovations in energy efficiency, home technology and design, you can feel confident knowing that DreeSmart innovations are included in a new Drees home. Because that's the right way to build a home.


DreeSmart Energy

Drees homes are designed to save homeowners money and meet rigorous energy efficiency guidelines. DreeSmart Energy is a whole-house systems approach to building where we consider all the variables, details, and interactions that affect energy use in your home. To verify that every home we build meeting our standards, we put each home through thorough third-party testing and inspections.


Some of the hallmarks of an energy efficient DreeSmart home include:

  • The Latest Heating & Cooling Systems – Each home is equipped with the industry’s leading heating and cooling systems plus smart thermostats that allow you to customize and control your home’s climate for maximum comfort and efficiency.
  • Complete Thermal Enclosure – We source only the toughest, most durable building materials to ensure our homes are solid from the start. Homes are then meticulously insulated and equipped with Low-E windows and whole-house ventilation. As a result, your indoor air stays cooler in the summer and cozier in the winter.
