Building and designing green homes is one of our core principles. After all, it's what the G in our name stands for! Our team is dedicated to finding innovative ways to support our conservation efforts in every project. Our home design team can work with you to determine the placement of your home on the lot to determine factors that will naturally increase your energy efficiency.
Even if you aren't building new, there are numerous products that can be incorporated in an existing home to save you money and energy. Everyday decor such as your window treatments can be scheduled to open and close at peak times to maximize light while also helping to regulate your home's temperature based on the season. With today's technology we can also schedule appliances and lights in the home to be sure you aren't using energy during peak times, again saving money and resources. Keep in mind that technology extends past electronics in your home. It also includes the processes that manufacturers of everyday household items such as flooring, cabinets and countertops use to produce their materials. By conserving energy in production and distribution as well as using recycled goods and non-toxic substances they greatly reduce the impact on our environment as well as improve the air quality in your home. Like we said, the list of design and technology options for your home go far beyond this list. Contact us today to discuss details on products and processes that can help you reduce the use to save energy and money!

They will also work with you to select a plan that requires a maintenance level that fits your lifestyle.
As part of our outdoor living design services, we offer custom hardscape design including paver installation. Pavers provide an attractive, high-end alternative to traditional hardscapes for your walkways, driveways, patios, and other outdoor areas.
