Think Green In 2012

By . January 6th, 2012. Posted in home building

We here at Hanlon Design Build are the area’s leading builders of “green” homes. No, we are not referring to the color of the siding or trim on the outside of the home, but rather to the ec0-friendly home designs we pride ourselves on. Whether you are considering building a new home, remodeling or reinventing your current NW DC area home, our team of trained, profession green home design build team is here to help.

When you think of the various ways of reducing the environmental impact of your home and its amenities, make sure you keep an open mind. Rather than simply thinking about changing the light bulbs to the soft-serve-ice-cream-cone-looking high efficiency variety, consider bigger options such as insulation, flooring, building materials and furnishings.

Working closely with our designer and engineers, you may discover green options for your luxury home construction that you were not aware of. Have you considered using recycled glass to create a kitchen counter top rather than using the industry standard of granite or other natural stone?

Keep your family and friends — no to mention yourself — warm with eco-friendly home insulation. The insulation industry has grown by leaps and bounds since the days of the rolled pink insulation advertised with the big pink cat. Earth-friendly foam insulation may be the answer you seek in your green home design and building. Not only does the foam insulation not harm the environment, it also is more economical and provides better protection from the elements.

When you are ready to embark on your custom designed luxury green home in NW DC or the surrounding areas, give us a call. The highly trained and professional team at Hanlon Design Build will exceed your expectations through every step of the process.
