Build it green, this has nearly become a tag line these days. Beyond all of the hype and media exaggeration, there is real opportunity to build a home that is not only visually stunning, but efficient and in tune with the environment. The simplest solutions are nearly always the best and you would be surprised how simple changes to a home or its design can have a huge effect on your electric bill. Efficiency can be built through the use of the most energy conserving materials and techniques, combined with simple design elements such as extra deep roof overhangs to keep the sun off of the windows.
Taking a whole house approach to efficient and “Green” design means looking at every energy and raw material consuming process, evaluating what makes sense to change and moving forward with a project that has been designed by a team that understands the goals.
