  23. 24. <ul><li>When building a low-impact, low-energy home the possibilities are endless. </li></ul><ul><li>From the roofing systems, to exterior finishes, to the way you choose to heat/cool your home; you have the choice to mix and match any options at your disposal. </li></ul>What are my options?
  24. 25. Energy Options: -Solar -Geothermal -Wind
  25. 26. Roofing Systems -Asphalt -Standing Seam -Wood/Cedar -Clay Tiles -Metal/Steel -Slate
  26. 27. Exterior Choices: -Novabrik -Sustainable Harvested Wood Siding - Hardie Board (Cement Siding) -EIFS (Dry-vit) -Recycled Plastic
  27. 28. <ul><li>Environmentally friendly plasters </li></ul><ul><li>No or Low VOC paint </li></ul><ul><li>Grass Cloth </li></ul><ul><li>Paperless Drywall </li></ul><ul><li>Recycled Ceiling Tiles </li></ul>Interior Finish Options
  28. 29. Eco-Friendly Floor Choices Choosing green floors not only helps the environment, but it can be healthier for your family as well. Also, they don't use toxic chemicals like some traditional flooring choices do. The options that follow are considered eco-friendly because they are made from recycled or easily replenished materials.
  29. 30. <ul><li>Using reclaimed or recycled soft or hardwoods has a low impact on the environment, since you're using a material that was already harvested long ago, instead of depleting current forests. </li></ul>Recycled Hardwoods <ul><li>Reclaimed woods can be salvaged from old properties. </li></ul>
  30. 31. <ul><li>Bamboo looks and feels a lot like hardwood, but since bamboo is a grass and not a tree, it's easily replenished. </li></ul><ul><li>The bamboo used in flooring is harvested from managed plantations and grows back in about four years.  </li></ul>Bamboo
  31. 32. <ul><li>Cork is manufactured from the bark of living trees (without hurting the tree itself), so it's an ideal sustainable material. </li></ul><ul><li>In fact, the harvesting of cork bark actually stimulates the growth of the tree. </li></ul>Cork Flooring
  32. 33. <ul><li>Today, old beer and wine bottles are being recycled and transformed into glass floor tiles. </li></ul><ul><li>The cracking and bubbling that is a result of the recycling process adds visual interest to the floor. </li></ul><ul><li>You can get rubber carpet padding and rubber flooring that is made from shredded tires. </li></ul><ul><li>Every 100 square feet of flooring keeps 7.5 tires from going into land fills. </li></ul>Recycled Glass or Rubber
