Sample Green Features

Sleek and unencumbered, home designs implemented by Sierra Homes feature deliberate non-toxic materials, air systems, energy efficiency, and sound building principles. You might think of solar panels and solar hot water heaters as well as large overhangs and awnings to shield from the Texas sun. You may notice xeriscapes outdoors instead of green lawns. But much of what makes it green is not so apparent.

Structure elements include excellent types of insulation from the ground and crawlspaces through the roof panels, from the siding to interior walls, doors, and windows. Large outdoor living areas and decks are a given.

Materials may include Cambria countertops, bamboo flooring, reclaimed woods and local wood, recycled glass elements, large openable windows, American clay plaster, and other uncommon products.  Systems may include Indoor Air Packages, Advance Lighting Packages, Whole House Rainwater Catchment Systems. These come with lots of forethought and careful engineering.
