Hire a professional

It is important to seek out a professional who is experienced in the field of building green homes. Professional home builders has an adequate experience and will be in a better position to guide you and incorporate green features and elements into the basic home design.

Nowadays, home security is one of the  investments that you need to have at home.  Alarm systems like CCTV and alarm monitoring system is a must especially if you are out all day for your work.

Compare potential designs

It is important to ask potential architects and professional home builders for various designs that you can compare before you take your pick. Choose the one that makes your home look spacious while smartly incorporating green features like water harvesting systems and solar panelling. You may also ask them to hire a commercial roof painter to use a heat reflective paint on the  green home design they are planning.

Ask for quotes

Green projects and green designs cost more than traditional interior designs. It is therefore essential to ask more than one company for quotes. Compare quotes and the features each one offers for the suggested price before you finally hire a green home designer.

Keep in mind that those specialized in the field of green designing may charge higher rates but offer a better quality of service.
