Looking to build a small home as eco as possible, where do we start?
We are looking to build an approximately 30x30 small 2 story single pitch home, with a budget of approx $200,000 in Edelweiss, QC - where do we start?
We are starting to look at lots, checking out acre or half acre lots since we are both suburb-phobic ( why move to the country if you don't have any privacy or even trees on your land right?) , I saw that Eidelweiss Lakes is making some LEED homes with you guys, which is fantastic, and lets us know that the area is eco-house-friendly with its regulations, what a relief!
We were thinking of building our own simple design but know we'd need help, advice, resources, etc to make it happen - we're coming in from Montreal, so we're not very familiar with Outaouais resources, can you recommend a group or organization or company we could look into for guidance to get the ball rolling? Thank you!
