It’s not just a vision for tomorrow: Sustainable 9 Design + Build creates homes for tomorrow today, reflected in its enduring commitment to green, high performance, energy-efficient homes that are stunningly designed and custom-built.

At Sustainable 9, we are all about creating eco-friendly, modern homes that will help save you money in the long run on expenses like electricity, heat, and more. Not only do we wish to help you bring your sustainable dream home to life, but we want to make everyone more aware of the benefits of living a more environmentally conscious lifestyle inside your home.

To help you get started on creating an energy-efficient home, here are some tips and tricks courtesy of Garadry, a great company that works towards saving energy in your home through their garage door threshold seal kits.

As you can see, there are plenty of simple, everyday things you can do inside your home today that will benefit both your wallet and the environment. Remember, you don’t have to give up quality and comfort to lessen your carbon footprint.

At Sustainable 9, we work with our clients from the very beginning, starting with our consultation phase, all the way through construction, to create a home that is truly unique. In between, we collaborate on the architectural and design agreement to ensure that their taste and preferences are met. We are fortunate enough to have partnerships with companies that produce sustainable and environmentally conscious products and materials that our clients will get to choose from to personalize their homes.

We practice what we preach, with our homes being 62% more energy efficient than a standard new construction home, and 70% more sealed than a standard new home, to ensure that cold air isn’t sneaking in during the winter, and hot air in the summer.

Sustainability is both a mindset and a lifestyle that is only increasing in popularity, and people everywhere are deciding to take action and live their lives in way that is beneficial for every stakeholder in the world today. Sustainability also happens to be a mindset that we adhere to and are passionate about. If you’re interested in seeing some of the homes we’ve helped bring to life, take a look at our past projects.
