Building a home on the side of a mountain or also in an open field is indeed a great idea meanwhile, it is probably not the eco-friendly idea. Instead you can build your home near other already existing homes and several developed areas. This is indeed the least harmful to the environment surrounding the home.
Lesser trees actually need to be cut down and also less ground will not be town away. Besides, if you live closer to those of others, it will be indeed convenient to carpool bike, or take transportation saving even more money.
Look for natural light – Your home should be placed strategically so that it can easily capitalize on natural light. During daylight time, the majority of light should actually come from the natural daylight rather than lamps and light bulbs.
The roof – A light colored roof tends to reflect the sun’s heat rather than absorbing it, helping you to keep your mountain house plans coolest. This is of course a green option for those of new and also already existing homes. Another important roofing idea is a green roof that is partially or fully covered by a complete layer of soil and vegetation.
Insulation – You should always look for a higher R-value insulation, the higher the R-value the more effective it is an insulation.
