'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!
