The secret to making your home a finely tuned Green Home in energy conservation is taking advantage of the sun and wind to heat, light, and cool your home affordably.Using the sun for heating through south facing windows during the winter lowers heating costs. Shading those same windows in summer lowers cooling costs. Solar tempering aims to optimize this passive use of the sun’s heat.

Designing a home to take advantage of the surrounding landscape from the outset, planning your site to blend in and working with the natural features of the surrounding community are a few of the green land development strategies, saving money as well asbeing environmentally- friendly.

Natural Light

One of our goals in the design phase of Green Home building is using the sun to the building’s advantage for natural heating, cooling, and daylighting.

By designing a home flooded with light, a Green Home allows for sunlight to warm the home naturally. Not only does it blur the line between inside and out, best gives a picturesque panorama of impressive views.
