Today, thanks to many individuals’ resourcefulness and creativity, people are finding ways to bring environmental-friendliness to many aspects of life. As the cost of utilities continues to rise, and as people discover new initiatives that can help sustain our planet, green construction can make a big difference.
One company is already leading the way toward greener living spaces. Clayton Homes, based in Tennessee has developed what it is calling the i-house, an ultra-modern, eco-friendly living space. And its space-age design is already catching eyes every time an i-house pops up in a new city.
So what makes the i-house so friendly to Mother Nature? The designers of this house were inspired by the words the “i” in “i-house” stands for: innovation, inspiration, intelligence and integration. Letting these principles guide them, the i-house’s creators designed a home with features such as a tankless water heater, solar panels, a rain water collection system, Earth-friendly bamboo floors and decks made out of recycled materials.
While the concept of the i-house may still be in the early stages of gaining popularity, green construction projects in general are on the rise. Corporations and individuals alike are continuing to find new advantages to living and working in green spaces.
