Green Building: the Right thing to Do?
Today, we are turning our focus to green building. We will touch on why people choose green building, the importance of green building, and how much does green building really matter.
Here is just one definition if Green Building:
Green building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction.(www.epa.gov)Okay, so there we go. “Green building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible.” This is exactly our line of thinking. Building green is very important to us. And where does it start? With the structure, and the walls of course!Timber Block Insulated Log Homes utilizes a patented system building process that ensures R-30 wall insulation. This is something that is very important if green building is important to you. This certainly makes a big difference when it comes to the energy efficiency of your home. Your roof in a Timber Block home also includes a high R rating-up to R-40, even as high as R-50. Not only is green building overall responsible, but it’s a must when it comes to wall insulation. In fact, many building codes coast to coast require it. R-30 wall insulation meets or exceeds building codes related to wall insulation.This, together with a tight thermal envelope is not only energy efficient, but will make you feel cozy and warm in the winter and cool and comfortable in the summer.Also, we are low on waste-also an important part of green building. The walls of many of our homes can be delivered on one truck-saving on delivery, and of course, turns into less waste.We also have overall less waste-components we don’t use will be used in other parts of building.Want to learn more about green building and Timber Block in general?
