4 More Sustainable Design-Build Ideas for Your Custom Home

You deserve to have the best custom home design possible.

You deserve to have the best custom home design possible. When you work with the experts here at Accessible Home Builders, you can rest assured that this outcome is possible. After all, for us, “quality is standard” in terms of both home designs and home remodeling. Here now are four more sustainable design-build ideas that you can use to bring your dream home to life!

Consider Using “Green” Roofing 

First of all, don’t hesitate to use so-called “green” roofing. There are two major benefits to doing this: the curb appeal increases while the home also becomes more energy and cost-efficient. Green grass roofs may sound odd, but they could represent a unique touch for your custom home. Besides, if it is located by the coast, then why wouldn’t you want this special feature? Perimeter drains, subsurface drainages, rainwater gutters, and even living gardens integrated into your roof can be spectacular additions you never expected to have before. 

Rethink Where the Rooms Go 

The inside of your custom home is just as important as what’s outside. Therefore, rethink where the rooms should go. Which rooms will need the most heating and cooling, and how will you distribute the air throughout the house? Besides the function of each room, ensure that every part of the home will receive the amount of air and natural light they need to be extra inviting.

Account for Energy-Efficient Windows 

Energy-efficient windows are a vast improvement over their older, less eco-friendly counterparts. After you have determined the direction of the prevailing winds in your area, you can choose the windows that will be the most effective at providing natural ventilation. Ah, but don’t forget about the window frames! For the best results, choose either wood or recycled aluminum.

Don’t Forget About the Walls

Finally, don’t exclude the walls from your home design plans! Every home needs a sturdy set of walls, and a fabulous new custom home is no exception! Bricks made of lime, cement, and sand are great elements to include, as are low-maintenance ceramics that can make your exterior walls look more sophisticated.
