By far, one of the greatest advantages to building a home is taking advantage of new building trends, techniques, and materials. For a slightly higher building cost you can have a home certified by ENERGY STAR that will significantly reduce your utility expenses. We whole heatedly recommend the extra effort over traditional building standards. Just note that if you do decide to go this route you need to go all the way. Be sure to consult with a certified ENERGY STAR builder in your area to make sure your home will pass the inspections.

You can also take advantage of this opportunity to wire your home for SMART technology. SMART technology is easy-to-use hardware and software that integrates with your house. There are hundreds of applications for this technology and as it grows in popularity you’re home will be wired to take advantage of the new market.
