Green House Plans
Your home is an important component of moving to a new city, and a few of you will have some say in how it is built and designed. Green principles may come into play, especially regarding utilities and their rising costs, and Freegreen.com aims to help out with downloadable plans, 3-D images and written descriptions.
One model is called the Healthy Family model and focuses on contemporary design, high indoor air quality and efficient energy sources. Consumers then have the option of adding mudrooms and home offices. Additionally, FreeGreen.com sends you an energy report that is tailored to your new city or town, and a welcome packet, complete with resources and information about your new location.
FreeGreen only launched a few weeks ago, but already it’s evident that they are taking into consideration the many aspects that moving and building a green home entail. The plans even factor in climate and weather conditions, and how these affect energy use.
