Orient Your Home Around the Sun
Green Building Tips

The way a builder orients a home in relation to the sun can go a long way toward efficiently lighting, heating and cooling it. Strategic positioning of the structure on your land, followed by thoughtful window and door placement, will allow you to take advantage of natural light and passive solar heat — thus saving you money on your energy bills. This practice also makes for a more comfortable home.Sun orientation
