Build Your Dream House
When you’re finally ready to build your dream house, make sure it’s not a nightmare for the environment. Choosing salvaged or sustainable wood for your house is a great way to lessen your impact on our woodlands. Similarly, installing solar panels or otherwise turning to solar energy to power your house is a great way to conserve energy and keep your bills down while you’re at it. To furnish your house, scour flea markets, vintage and charity shops for one-of-a-kind finds. Or, buy new but buy wisely. The Jigsaw Bookcase is a top quality, environmentally friendly design that will make all your friends jealous. Finally, when it comes to decorating your outdoor areas, consider crumbled sea shells or chipping old rock to create gravel for your driveway.
