As more clients are understanding the value of green building both from a financial perspective and as the foundation of building a healthier home, Mitch is able to incorporate many elements of green design into your custom home.
This can mean anything from making fundamental design decisions such as selecting the best facing for your home to maximize efficiency from solar gain and shade to designing for geothermal heat pumps and solar panels.
Mitch can also advise on the best products to choose to create a healthy and sustainable home; relcaimed timbers and paints without volatile organic compounds for example.
Energy efficiency and water conservation are two of the most important parts of a “green home” and this is where your investment will save you money for the life of the home. All of these efficiencies must be designed into the plan from the beginning of the project.
Making selections that give you the most “bang for your buck” are important in determining where to put the upgrades in high-performance green homes and Mitch can also advise on this aspect of green building.
