This project involved the use of sustainable development in the design of a residential structure. The proposed development of the land and design of the house are an effort to create a sustainable future for both the family and the land for which it is suited. Analyses of human lifestyles, sustainable development techniques and green building methods and technologies were performed to place the house and guide its design. The house design and development provides cost-effective green alternatives that encourage a sustainable lifestyle.
