SUSTAINABILITY AND GREEN BUILDING PRACTICES

Green building practices are becoming more commonplace as interest in sustainability and energy conservation has moved into the mainstream. One of the keys to building an efficient home is doing the small things right. Better insulation and air sealing methods, high quality windows and doors and the latest in high efficiency heating and cooling units are just some of the way we can make gains. Taking care of the details is only part of the solution, we can also begin to incorporate the new technologies that have become available and continue to emerge. Solar hot water and electric systems, geothermal heating and cooling systems and alternate construction methods are only some of the items that are available to us.

We at Kaufman Residential Design are here to help provide the information you need to make informed decisions when planning your home. We will then incorporate those decisions into the design. Please call or e-mail us if you have any questions or if you would like to begin the design process
