New Green Home Construction

Shuttershock

Well here we are in the beautiful Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, Canada.

Over the coming months we are going to showcase a New Home Build using some of the latest “Green” Technologies and Ideas.

The home is going to be an Owner/Build to show that the latest “Green” Technologies are within reach of anybody considering building a new home and are not only cost wise, but user friendly as well. The home will include an ICF(Insulated concrete form) foundation, SIP(structural Insulated Panel) walls, solar hot water heating that not only heats the home, but also the domestic hot water, solar panels and environmentally friendly building materials wherever possible.

Design, style and tastes all have an effect on the final product and while each of these can be taken to extremes, we will be using a balanced approach to maximize efficiency within the specific tastes of the Owners and site requirements of the location.

As the project progresses, we will update the status of the build with information and reasons behind material uses and construction procedures.
