We spend as much as 90% of our days indoors—and more than half of that is spent inside our homes. Surprisingly, the air inside even the cleanest home can be as much as ten times more polluted than the air outside.
At River Vine, achieving Zero Net Energy starts at the top—with a cool roof. Our high performance cool roofing system was custom-prefabricated to River Vine’s precise measurements and design, then installed on each module at our AMS factory in Manteca. After the final West Wing modules are set at the building site in Lodi, seams will be hot-air welded together to form a weathertight seal.

Daylight Savings Time is back, giving most of us another hour of daylight for the next six months. Studies have shown that humans are drawn to, and thrive, in environments infused with natural light. We’re happier, healthier and more productive in bright, sunny spaces, so it makes sense that, as builders and homeowners, we want to add sunlight to rooms where we spend our time.
It was the day we’d been anticipating for months. Led by a California Highway Patrol escort, our proprietary AMS transports wound their way from the factory in Manteca to California Wine Country, bringing our River Vine modules home to Lodi.
When River Vine began to look at the most efficient, effective and sustainable building opportunities available for homes today, the idea of radiant floors came to the forefront. Hydronic radiant technology consists of warm or cool water flowing through a network of crosslinked polyethylene (PEX) tubing embedded under the floor. When the system is in heating mode, the warmth radiates up from the floor surface, warming people and objects with a comfort and indoor environmental quality that is far superior to any other method of heating a home. When the system is in cooling mode, the cooler water draws in the surrounding heat to pull heat from the floor’s surface and, in turn, cool people and objects that come in contact with the area.
