As leading sustainable home builders in NZ, the team at Craft Homes has expert insight into sustainable building practices and the challenges they present. We want to share our knowledge with the public so anyone and everyone can make more informed decisions about their new build homes, so we’ve put together a new eBook entitled, “Building a Sustainable Future: 12 Tips for Building a Sustainable Home, and How Craft Homes Can Help.”
The eBook covers 12 key points that we’ve chosen to highlight to help prospective homeowners better prepare for a sustainable build project, and will be released shortly. In this blog, we’ve taken three of the twelve tips, to give you a sample of what you can expect.
What is sustainable building?
Before we get into the first of our sample tips, it’s important to clearly define a sustainable building.
A sustainable building is one that minimises the environmental impacts of both constructing and running a home. When most think of sustainable homes, they tend to focus on how a home will run and disregard the initial building processes. Here at Craft Homes, we ensure that we cover both sides of the coin.
