Building a custom home that compliments the landscape and using what the natural environment gives you is very important. Not only does it create a unique home, but it can also help increase the value of your property. Kinley Built wants to help homeowners in Estes Park build a custom home that they can be proud of by finding ways to complement the landscape.
How to Build a Custom Home That Compliments the Landscape
Consider Existing Landscape
When you decide where your custom-built home should be located, consider the existing landscape. Look at the topography, the terrain of the land, and how your home will complement the land. Kinley Built contractors can provide recommendations about how to enhance the view and still add the necessary space and amenities.
Choose the Right Materials
After you have chosen where your custom home will be built consider the types of materials you plan to use while building your home. Natural materials such as stone, wood, and brick will help a home blend into the surrounding environment and not look out of place.
Plan Your Home Around the Surrounding Environment
Once the materials are in place, our contractors will advise you where your custom home should be built so it positively interacts with the surrounding environment. Think about ways to use existing elements, such as plants and trees, to create a natural barrier between your home and the outside world. Using the surrounding environment will help you maintain your privacy and bring a natural ambiance to your home.
Think About your Homes Energy Efficiency
Once you have built your home, consider ways to make your home more energy efficient in order to protect the environment. This can include green building practices and energy-efficient appliances to help reduce your carbon footprint and energy bills.
