The design of your house is far more than the style of front porch, dormers or no dormers, it is about designing a house that meets the needs of your family as well as how it performs. This is an area that we excel in.
Taking a “House as a System” approach in regards to energy efficiency for every project. We believe a house that functions well for it’s owner is of paramount importance. For example, our design takes into consideration how long it takes to get hot water from the water heater to your shower and kitchen sink. Or how the sunshine can affect heating and cooling of your house. If you have ever been in houses with overheated or under-heated spaces in it, this is precisely what we design to avoid.
A well-designed house functions with comfort and efficiency in mind; we know how to do that.With our help, you can avoid detrimental design elements and enhance energy saving practices.
Many design criteria play a part in how your house functions including:
- The amount of glass and placement of windows
- The location of plumbing pipes
- How the roof system is put together.
These choices can make your house more comfortable to live in as well.
Paying attention to details like this can have a dramatic effect on how much your daily costs are going to be as you live in your new home. Each month you can save money on your electric or gas bills with a well thought-out design by us.
We carefully take into account all of these elements during the design phase.
We also help walk you through each and every decision to make sure that you understand the trade-offs of each choice so you can make better informed design choices.
All this is provided by us to design a high performing home for you that lasts for a lifetime.
