HAND CRAFTED TIMBER FRAMES
GREEN BUILDING
Green Building Green Mountain Timber Frames are Environmentally Sensitive and Energy Efficient Timber frame home structures use at least ten percent less wood than stick-built (i.e., conventionally-framed) houses. In building your Green Mountain home, we concentrate on using both environmentally-sound and energy-efficient construction materials and practices. Only those building materials and components that promise more effective use of natural resources are employed in the construction of your Green Mountain home. Among these are ... Reclaimed timber, or timbers harvested from a certified-sustainable forest Low VOC (volatile organic compounds) building materials Non-toxic glues, adhesives, sealants, and stains In addition, we incorporate building techniques designed to overcome the challenge of rising energy costs. We consider the path of the sun when situating your home on your property in order to incorporate passive solar principles for greater winter heating efficiency and to derive the greatest benefit of available shade for summer cooling. We have participated in the development and construction of a “zero-energy” home (ZEH). A ZEH is connected to the electric power grid. However, it generates more power than it uses during off-peak hours by uniting renewable energy technology with energy-efficient construction. Over a year, a ZEH returns almost as much energy to the grid as it consumes, thus achieving “net zero” energy consumption. Proven Performance — Our homes are up to the task The Blower Door Test: Blower Door Test Whether as a SIP enclosure over a Timberframe, or a Structural Panel Home, SIPs have proven superior performance. To visit the organization who performed the testing, go to www.ecasavesenergy.org The renewable energy technologies incorporated in ZEH construction may include: Ground source heat and air conditioning systems Tankless hot water heaters Click here for more information about green construction principles
