Green Additions

Building a Green Addition

Designing an addition is like designing a whole house, and it's an opportunity to think about your house as a system, with the addition of a smaller system itself. Virtually everything involved in new construction is encountered in building an addition, especially if you are including a kitchen or bathroom. Integrated building design often results in first-cost savings, especially in the case of energy conservation.

Note: See Chapter 6, Room Additions in the book Green Remodeling for more details. You can read more about Green Remodeling in "Green Remodeling - Changing the World One Room at a Time". An comprehensive review of green remodeling, including:

How to Get Started with your Green Addition

3-steps to get you started in the right direction.

Step One: Asking the Right Questions

Before you start any work, drop by your building department to find out if an addition is permitted on your lot. There is nothing more frustrating than spending time designing your dream home and then having the building department deny your application. Spend some time finding people who understand what you want to do. Most of us need the expertise of an architect and a contractor to get the project done. Choose your team carefully.
