'There are more and more options on the market to make your life easier when going green. Growing research shows that the choice of greener buildings is becoming more mainstream and less of an alternative choice.

Dodge Data & Analytics conducted a survey with the National Association of Home Builders in 2015, which shows that over a third of house builders are involved in green projects for over 60 percent of their clients. That also means contractors will be more willing to engage with sustainable house builds and for a more reasonable price. Let’s take a look at the most revered and well-known options available for green house building.

Location Is Still Everything

You will have heard this time and time again, so all the more reason to take heed. Avoid building a west-facing house as the sun-exposure may overheat your home and incur major air-conditioning electricity bills. Unfortunately, the elements are a serious consideration in real estate given the suspected effects of global warming, therefore do your research into any flood risk areas, hurricane or earthquake potentials within your chosen vicinity.

Green living tends to extend to how we travel and as such while you’ve probably already thought about it, do keep aware of local transport links and public transport options when building your house. Taking advantage of a train line to handle your daily commute could reduce your carbon footprint majorly as well as decreasing your travel time!

Testimony on how i got my LOAN from ... I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
