The advantages of building a custom home are endless, and one of those is the ability to implement green appliances and materials from the get-go. This makes you socially responsible and it usually ends up being more economical in the long-run too.
Sustainable buildings are healthy buildings for both residents and the environment. Of course we don’t expect individuals to give up life’s little luxuries to live green. That’s why a sustainable builder will provide their expertise on green materials for practical living. Examples of sustainable ideas for your custom home can be:
Solar Energy – solar panels are easy to install. In addition, imagine your annual savings on energy.
Reduced Energy Appliances and Lightings – We recommend ENERGY STAR® appliances and also installing fluorescent lights and motion sensors to reduce the energy used in your home.
Green Flooring – Bamboo flooring or reclaimed wood are excellent options for flooring. These materials are light on the environment and healthy for you.
Natural Ventilation – We can design spaces that make the natural flow of nature enter your home. This will include window or door placements in the blue print.
Water Conservation – Showerheads, dishwashers and other appliances all add up when it comes to water usage. A certified building contractor will have hands-on knowledge of the best appliances for conserving water.
Building a sustainable home can require a lot of planning and construction techniques, so it’s important to hire a contractor that’s familiar with this territory. Your new custom home can be a beacon for your environmental beliefs. Building green doesn’t have to mean giving up your personal tastes either.
