General features of High-Performance home building
30% of a home's heating bill is due to air leakage. Lifestyle Homes builds energy-efficient homes designed to be airtight, dramatically reducing the amount of air wasted due to air leakage making your home truly energy efficient.
Indoor Air quality.
Most of the air in a home comes from the garage. Fumes from gasoline, fertilizers, and other toxic items stored in the garage are transferred directly into a home and affect the indoor air that your family breathes. Lifestyle Homes takes extra measures to seal the garage-to-house common walls, completely separating the contaminants in your garage from your home's living space.
Protection for allergy and asthma sufferers.
If anyone in your family suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems, you know firsthand that the quality of the air you breathe directly impacts the quality of life. Lifestyle Homes uses construction techniques that drastically reduce the amount of dust, dirt, pollen, carbon monoxide, and pollution that enter your home. By sealing the gaps typically created in the new home construction process, Lifestyle Homes reduces the number of pollutants that could negatively impact your quality of life.
Healthy living by managing and optimizing air, water, and thermal performance is our way of taking the guesswork out of sustainability.
Building homes sustainably or building green, goes beyond state building codes to elevate the overall performance of a home by combining building science with our standard high-quality craftsmanship. Oregon is known for its wet climate, so it's important that homes are built to withstand the region's moisture. Lifestyle Homes offers a Green Home Building Option to empower homeowners to choose for themselves if building green is right for them.
