Sensibly Sustainable Building

Pheasant Hill Sustainable Building“Going Green” is all the rage right now, but what does it really mean?

Is Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” accurate science, or merely a political bandwagon?

Is there such a thing as Peak Oil, and are we nearing that point now?

Why are we now plagued by unprecedented numbers of respiratory afflictions and auto-immune disorders, and how do the houses we live in contribute to these problems?

While there is still debate on each of these topics, it is clear that there is much to be done to improve the kind of housing we build and live in today. At Pheasant Hill Homes we value, and are committed to, Building Quality, Acting With Integrity, and Valuing People. (Click to view Pheasant Hill Homes’ Core Values ) Bottom line: We want to build better homes by reducing the environmental impact of our houses both now and in the future.

Each house is a system, and building and operating that “system” impacts our environment. There is no avoiding impact altogether, but there is much we can do to lessen the negative affects that standard construction methods (and lifestyle patterns) have on our environment. And the attending benefit to you as owners and occupants of these better homes will be lower operating costs and improved personal health. Please contact us if you would like to learn more.
