Landmark Home and Land Co can help you make your new home more Eco friendly! By properly locating and orienting your new home on your land and refining its design, we can maximize the use of natural sunlight, ground conditions and wind to make your home more comfortable and energy efficient. Using these natural resources will allow you to take advantage of the sun to provide natural heat to your home. Proper overhang design can allow you to gain sunlight in winter months and shade your home in the warmer summer months. Window types and placement can help you ventilate and cool your home properly. They will also allow natural light to enter the home and reduce your need for artificial lighting. All of this saves you money. These design elements, and others will help you have a more comfortable home that is more energy efficient. Adjusting your design is an economical process to help you save money throughout your home ownership. We are prepared to help you with your new home design.
California Green Codes
Many states are adding Green Codes to their requirements to obtain permits. California is making compliance with “CAL Green Code” necessary with all permit applications after January 1, 2014. We can help you design and plan your new home building project to fit within “CAL Green Code” or any other state’s green code. Cal Green Code will involve your home design, energy efficiency, water efficiency and conservation, material conservation and resource efficiency, and environmental quality. The code affects your whole building project, not just the home. We are prepared to help you comply. We have Green Code experts on our team that will work with our designers, draftspeople, engineers and production facilities to assure compliance. They can also supply any other necessary details regarding your new home project and help with proper documentation to help you through the permit application process. We can also make structural changes to the home that will increase your homes energy efficiency. Staggered studs, energy heel trusses and alternative sheathings are commonly used. Landmark’s panelized homes are beneficial to Green Code compliance. Our panelization process has efficiencies which calculate proper material usage and minimize waste. Excess materials from board cuts are used in other portions of the home, recycled or repurposed. This will help you with your Green Code compliance in any state. There is also minimal waste during the assembly process at your building site which saves you money on dumpster costs while also keeping your building site clean.
