“The beauty of these plans is more than skin deep,” says Editor-in-Chief Matt Power.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 10, 2011
Green Builder magazine’s April 2011 issue features more than 25 eco-friendly home plans. The home plans are designed with a careful mix of high-tech and low-tech materials and systems that foster green living. And, just as important, their timeless architectural style and practical layouts ensure they would nestle nicely into any American neighborhood.
“The beauty of these plans is more than skin deep,” says Editor-in-Chief Matt Power. “They contain exacting details that allow them to outperform similar looking, conventionally built homes. Look carefully and you’ll find models designed with SIPs and ICFs, optimal framing, and spray-foamed attics.”
Fantasy renderings were designed for each of the top “editor’s choice” plans to enable a homeowner to imagine what this home might look like when completed with eco-friendly furnishings.
These plans were chosen from a selection of nearly 50 winners in a green home competition offered by The House Designers, http://www.thehousedesigners.com, a house plan company that offers a wide selection of Energy Star approved house plans.
