Designing your own home can be a fun and rewarding task. After all, who wouldn’t want to own a home that was optimized to fit all of their personal preferences, a home that had all the nice little touches you’ve been wishing for? With advances in modern technology doing the design work yourself, with help and guidance from an experienced professional, can be fun and an amazing process. Enjoy the quick video below with Jonathan sharing about the design and building of his home.

With all the concern lately over the state of the environment and various related concerns, like global warming for example, many people are turning to environmentally friendly building materials and healthy home construction. Healthy home construction involves using green materials that will stand up to the test of time without harming the environment or your health. Designing your own home? Here’s why you should consider healthy home construction when the time comes:

  • In many cases, less energy is used to manufacture sustainable building materials, like Faswall, making them more environmentally friendly.
  • Many environmentally friendly homes that utilize healthy home construction can help save on energy bills. In a world where prices keep on rising, saving a good chunk of money every month is a great reason to build and design a green home.
  • Healthy home construction is a very much sought after feature in a home. This can help increase home value should you ever decide to sell the home you design.
  • Lastly, many people experience overall better health when making the switch to these materials. Due to toxins, mold and other harmful substances in conventional building materials, many people suffer from respiratory problems, headaches, asthma and other illnesses. Healthy home construction can help minimize, or even banish, these ailments.

Designing your own home can be exciting, but there are many things to take into account during the process. You’ll need to receive help from a contractor or other professional, and you’ll need to decide if your home will have any special touches, like green or specialty building materials. In the end, enjoy the process and your new home!

    I’ve been wanting to design my own environmentally friendly home for a while now. I’m not sure exactly how to create plans to build a home, so I will make sure to get a contractor, like you suggested. Are there any contractors that specialize in green homes, who can help give me ideas of what I can do to become more energy efficient?
