From its inception, the Architecture firm Jeff Day & Associates, LLC has focused on sustainable design. The importance of reducing the negative environmental impact through skillful, creative and sensitive design with a reduced reliance on non-renewable resources, less impact on the environment, and the ability to relate people with the natural environment. Yet saving planet Earth is only one side of the coin. The need to create homes that cost less to build, and less to operate mean savings for homeowners, and in today’s economy, sustainable design is a welcome approach to design.
Our design process will walk you through designing a green home that fits your budget – starting with how and when you live in each room of your home .
