THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — TRIANGLE NC | VOLUME 17 — ISSUE 2 82 BUILDING OR BUYING A HOME are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient is gaining momentum every day. Green technology can complement and even expand the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. Taking advantage of green building tax credits aids in not only short-term spending but over the long haul in much lower costs in the future. Thanks to improvements made in building processes and materials, homes built today are 100% more energy-efficient than homes built, for instance, in the 70s. The advances include more durable roof coverings, better insulated windows, increased amount of insulation, plus high-efficiency heating, cooling, and water heating devices and equipment. Another thing to remember about green building is that, as with any type of structure, it comes from the bottom up. Green homes do more than just provide an economical ways to heat water, keep out the cold, or recycle some landfill-destined materials; they incorporate environmental considerations and resource efficiency into every step of the process including how to minimize environmental impact. Buying or building a home can be time consuming and stressful. After all the work and thought that goes into this decision you're probably too tired to think about anything... much less on how to make it look like a home ripped from any home decor magazine or television design show. That's where Whitley Furniture Galleries can help. Michael Strauss, an interior design consultant for Whit- ley Furniture Galleries can alleviate the stress and frustra- tion that comes when furnishing your home. Here's how he does it... "I can work one-on-one with you in your home to measure your space, and design multiple room layouts to show how your room will look. This will allow you to see many ideas at once before making your purchase. Then I will pull together all the furniture pieces and materials to give the room that look you've always wanted." Whether you decide to build or buy, or somehow blend the two for your new home, nothing helps as much or saves you as much as doing your homework first. Remember, that starts well before calling a realtor to start opening doors and before you start dreaming of what might be.
