Every decision and all aspects of building and living in your home will affect energy consumption, your physical health, and your spiritual well-being. The goal of the Garrell Associates' Green Page is to provide for our customers, clients, and friends a link to "Earth Friendly" resources related to the home and surrounding lanscape and gardens (such as xerioscaping and veggie gardens). Some of the basics begin with local and international conservation codes for residences.
The next level is building to a "higher standard" by employing advanced programs sponsored by energy and fuel suppliers; or by implementing a programs such as "Earth Craft", designed by SouthFace Energy Institute in Atlanta, GA. Beyond proper solar orientation, Garrell Associates can design a true passive/active solar custom home with aesthetic appeal for your geo-climate.
If you wish to "let the reins out" creatively, James H. Klippel or Michael W. Garrell are ready to design a living piece of Art. Organic architecture integrated into the earth and your life for today and generations to come.
If you have any questions about solar and earth-sheltered houses/designs - please contact James Klippel at: (770) 614-3239
