When choosing to build or remodel your home, you will make countless choices about considerations ranging from location to materials to contractors to interior decorating. If you have made the choice to approach your home-building from an environmentally and/or socially conscious perspective, all of your other choices will be informed by this perspective.
What does it mean to build or remodel an environmentally or socially conscious home? The degree to which you choose to implement sustainable practices will vary depending on a very individual perspective on what this means. Some prospective homebuilders embark on the project hoping to use as many sustainable practices and materials as possible. Many find that the level to which they achieve this goal is complicated by cost or availability, yet they are able to make some choices along the way that tread more gently on the earth than a strictly conventional approach. It is possible to build a home that uses all non- or low-toxic materials and that uses local, sustainable materials and practices; however, choosing to implement even a few of the suggestions below in a new construction or remodel project will help ease the impact caused by our building activities.
