SUSTAINABLE HOME DESIGN
Sustainable Design is the process approaching your custom home, addition or remodel comprehensively to reduce waste in the design and take advantage of natural features. I am passionate about environmental stewardship through design, and obtained a degree in Environmental Design.
Discover Your Environmental Amenities
First, your site is evaluated. Landscape amenities, climate and natural features are accounted for. This allows your design to take advantage of solar gain and other environmental amenities.
Reduce Waste Through Design
A smart design process means creating less waste. I have familiarity with the standard dimensions used in building materials. This allows me to create designs that don’t leave large pieces of plywood or other material unused and sent to the landfill.
Learn How to Build More Sustainably
The greatest factors in sustainability and energy efficiency are determined by choices you and your builder make after obtaining working plans. I am happy to offer thoughtful suggestions and resources about this.
There are many possibilities for designing sustainable features. If you're interested in sustainable design, please contact me to learn more.
