New House Construction: Going Green With Your Dream Home

Buying a home is one of the largest investments you will make in your life time, so it is important to get the home you will be happy in for many years. New House Construction is the best way to ensure your home will be everything you want it to be. A custom home means you can work with Ruhl Construction to choose a floor plan that is best suited for your family, choose the interior and exterior finishes and choose all of the fixtures to be installed.

There are several factors to consider for a New House Construction, so it is important to be prepared when meeting with the builder for the first time. It is important to ask the builder what materials will be used for the construction. The materials used in the construction will have an effect on the efficiency of your home. For example, it is important to make sure the builder is planning to use quality insulation materials between the outside walls and the siding. If you are attempting to be more environmentally friendly in your new home, it is important to discuss this with the builder. For example, when choosing the fixtures for the home, such as the furnace and water heater, make sure to let the builder know that you want the highest rated energy star fixtures.

These items will help you do your part for the environment as well as save you money on the energy bills. Other green products to consider for your custom home could include water saving toilets, faucets and shower heads. There are a range of environmentally friendly products to choose from for the flooring, cabinets and counter-tops, so remind your builder that these items should also be green products. For example, when choosing the flooring if you told the builder you were interested in wood floors, consider bamboo, which has the look of wood, but bamboo is a green, sustainable product. The goal is of a custom home is to have your dream home in the end, so it is important to work closely with your builder and make sure you clear on the design you are interested in as well as the details.
