Position to impact the land as little as possible. Passive solar design reduces heating and cooling loads resulting in smaller, more efficient systems and decreased overall costs. Energy efficiency is the next part of the process. Advanced construction technologies produce a green home insulated like a refrigerator, further reducing energy usage. Materials and features are chosen to maximize efficiency. Our green homes achieve third party certification to Energy Star and Healthy Built Home standards. Time and effort spent in the design phase results in a green building that costs less to build AND maintain. Located in Franklin, NC, Winter Sun will design your green home.

Plan Interior Space

3D modeling allows you to see your space! Ensure that you easily entertain family and friends. Create a place to retreat, whether a fireplace or a hot bath. Allow for adequate storage of shoes, cellphones and holiday decorations. Contact Us for more information.

When a building has been constructed air-tight and well-insulated, attention shifts to maintaining healthy Indoor Air Quality through carefully planned ventilation and elimination of harmful chemicals by use of non-toxic interior finishes. Recycled, reclaimed and reused material are incorporated into the building. Locally produced products are preferred. All these practices are key to a certified green Healthy Built Home.

The final factors are renewable energy resources like solar power or geothermal systems. A Winter Sun Solar Hot Water System by FAFCO is a great investment!
