Green Building

As a Certified Green Building professional, I use Green Building practices whenever possible. Green building means energy efficient design, high quality durable materials, and excellent construction practices. What's more, a green-built space can cost you less to maintain without necessarily costing more to build. Luckily, these days green design choices and products are readily available and widely used.

Green building starts with design that takes advantage of natural lighting and passive solar heating, provides good ventilation and proper air flow, and minimizes energy and water use. We can choose systems, products, and building materials which are sustainably produced, durable, and healthier to live with. The result is a comfortable and enjoyable new living space.

We can advise you on the options available to you, and the costs and benefits as applied to your project. Some examples of remodeling for a more energy-efficient, greener home:

  • New energy-efficient appliances.
  • Improved fluorescent lighting.
  • Efficient water heating, including tankless water heaters.
  • Water-efficient plumbing fixtures that reduce the amount of water used in the kitchen, laundry, or bath.
  • Healthier paints and finishes with low or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can eliminate odors and possible health issues.
  • Passive solar heat or solar photovoltaic power, where feasible for your project and site.
  • Good ventilation and sealing of air leaks, to improve indoor air quality, reduce heating and cooling costs, and make your home more comfortable.
