Nothing is worst than a dreamy home that is superbly design and capped off with substandard finishes. Unfortunately, this can happen if the homeowner ignore or sacrifice the quality of finish materials in the construction budget. The specifications of the finishes are just as important as other material specs. One can argue that finishes are even more important because they are visible. When it come to finishes, cheap is not the way to go. You can pay now or you can pay later when these finishes need replacing. Either way you will pay.
One of the main features of the green homes is that they should conserve energy. This concept has led to the creation of the myth that the energy can be conserved by solar panels and the wind turbines only. This idea is widely advertised and marketed by the solar panels and wind turbines selling companies.
So whether the solar panels and the wind turbines are going to work for your green home or not depend highly on the climatic conditions and building designs of the neighborhood you want to buy the house in. It also depends upon how much money are you willing to spend on a very long term investment.
Further reduce energy needs by “super-insulating” – doubling the insulation levels recommended by building codes. Earth berming, building into a south facing hillside or berming earth up on the north, west, and east sides of structures, further reduces heating and cooling energy needs. We can provide plans review or refer you to certified BDA architecture experienced in passive solar design.
You cannot always find an already built home that you love; sometimes you need to build your own home to make sure that it is everything you have ever dreamed of. Whether you want a big, nice kitchen, a master bedroom with a nice big walk in closet, or a nice backyard for the kids, the nice part about it is that you can make it anything you want. As long as you provide the land, hire someone to design it, and someone to provide the materials and actually build it, you can have a save, sturdy, and beautiful, not to mention brand new, house to live in.
Creating the right building design for a small plot is made much easier by finding house designs for narrow blocks. Any sort of home can be made narrow and tall in order to accommodate the needs of the family. Building a tall house rather than a wider one can ensure that the family gets the ideal living space. Using narrow house designs ensures that the owner of the land get the maximum benefit from the purchase.
