About Olthof Homes

In 1961, Fritz Olthof started on his home builder path constructing his first set of new homes in Lansing, Illinois. He performed much of the building process himself and that personal touch is still evident throughout Olthof Homes today.

While Fritz continued to grow his profession as a home builder, his wife Karen assisted and was also busy raising their five children. Their four sons, Scot, Todd, Dennis and Fritz all earned Construction Management degrees from Purdue University. Today, they are all managing different aspects of the home building process.

Up to 70% More Energy Efficient

You’re in the leading home energy and technology forefront with Olthof Homes. Olthof Homes uses the HERS (Home Energy Rating System) rating, which is the standard measure for a home’s energy efficiency, as designed by RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network). The HERS Index Score is used by all certified third-party energy-rating companies and can be described as a “MPG (miles per gallon)” sticker for houses. Olthof homes are up to 70% more energy efficient than the typical resale home and up to 40% more energy efficient for a new home built to code.

As an example, our Cordera plan would save an estimated $3,957 dollars in annual energy costs compared to the typical used home of the same size. Olthof Homes accomplishes this through a package of energy-saving equipment and products, coupled with superior sealing of the home and ventilation systems. These features are tested by a third-party company, which verifies that the energy efficiency standards are met. Olthof Homes provide high-performance new homes for sale and you save money every month.
