Frequently Asked Questions


What is an eco-friendly house plan?

An eco-friendly house plan is one that is designed to be more energy efficient than standard. Homes that use fewer resources due to having great natural lighting and tight building envelopes reduce their homeowners' carbon footprints and their utility bills, so it's a win-win for the environment and your wallet. Invest in the ENERGY STAR® Approved add-on to get the specifics to build any house in this collection to a higher level of efficiency!


What features make a house eco-friendly?

House plans that are eco-friendly typically feature thick walls with more room for insulation, windows/doors tailored to the climate zone, and smartly placed windows for lighting and to help with natural climate control. The placement of plumbing and mechanicals in your walls can also make a difference. You won't be able to see what makes a house eco-friendly just by looking, but you'll feel it when you move in!


Can any house be built to be eco-friendly?

Yes, any house design can be more eco-friendly depending on the products you choose to finish it. Weigh your options for insulation, windows, doors, etc. If you really want to maximize efficiency, you may also want to modify the design to suit the conditions of your location perfectly. Upgrading from 2x4 to 2x6 framing is recommended for colder climates, for instance. You can also orient a house to prevent or promote solar heat gain. Ask for a pro consult if you want to cover all the bases!
