Our Commitment to Green Building:

H&H Custom Home Builders have constructed Energy Star Compliant homes since we burst onto the building landscape in 1995 as ‘North Liberty’s Premier Builder’. Since then, Energy Star Guidelines have evolved into what we consider today as the pinnacle of efficiency and we, as builders of ‘green’ homes, have kept pace with those guidelines and have adapted them into each home that we build. H&H Home Builders will build you what is known today as a ‘green’ home, but what has always been lesser known as a ‘sustainable’ home. Sustainable homes are quality built so that they last not just decades, but are built to maintain value, encouraging pride of ownership for generations to come. An H&H ‘green’ Home uses raw materials in a responsible way, using fewer resources, resulting in the use of less energy.

As the standards continue to get tighter, we too will strive to meet and exceed those guidelines; our commitment to you as your builder. We will continue to research and utilize quality building products that are made from recycled and renewable materials. H&H Home Builders offer free consultations and design ideas, various lots to choose from, customization options, and a one year warranty on all new construction. Our homes will always be revered as ‘Quality’ and ‘Valuable’ The choice is yours to make. Let us help you design quality into your next home building experience.

Iowa City Police Investigate Strong-Armed Robbery

On August 28, 2015 at approximately 11:45 p.m., Iowa City Police responded to Mercy Hospital for an injured person reporting an assault.  Upon speaking with the victim, officers learned that this was actually a strong-armed robbery.

According to the victim, he met three Hispanic males at Gabe’s Bar, 330 E Washington St, Iowa City, and they spoke and shared drinks.  Between 9:00 and10:00 p.m., the victim went to the restroom when those same three males, along with 1-3 other Hispanic males, entered the bathroom rapidly and began assaulting him.  The victim reported he was struck over the head by one of the males and fell to the ground unconscious.  The victim awoke and realized an undisclosed amount of money and property had been stolen.  In addition, the victim sustained lacerations and other injuries that required emergency medical treatment.  The victim reported that bar staff was aware of the incident and he left and walked to the hospital on his own.  

One of the males involved was described as a Hispanic male, in his 20s, wearing a white shirt and flat-billed ball cap.  Another male was described as a Hispanic male, near the same age, wearing a red and black shirt.  The victim described both males as having neck tattoos.  The victim was unable to provide a good description of the other males as he was injured and being treated by hospital personnel. 

This incident is under investigation and anyone with information about this robbery is requested to contact the Iowa City Police Department.  In addition, the Iowa City Area CrimeStoppers is offering up to a $1000 cash reward for information leading to the arrest of this suspect. Anyone with information about this crime is urged to contact CrimeStoppers at 358-TIPS (8477).  All calls are held in strict confidence and anonymity is guaranteed.  Individuals providing information do not have to reveal their identity to collect a reward.
