  • Efficient Use of Natural Resources

Winsome focuses on the efficient use of natural resources in projects with the use of FSC Certified, Reclaimed and Recycled materials, job site waste recycling, home deconstruction and reclamation of materials when appropriate, and built-in home recycling systems. Our structures are tight and efficient utilizing high quality materials and superior construction methods to ensure that they will serve their inhabitants well for generations.

  • Healthy Indoor Air Quality

Winsome also focuses on ensuring healthy indoor air quality by using low VOC & non toxic materials, such as wood, stone, ceramic & wool. Incorporating radon, mold and mildew mitigation practices ensures that the building is not creating poor indoor air quality. Heat Recovery Ventilators in the homes provide whole house ventilation to mitigate off gassing & ensure a healthy level of fresh air exchange.

Winsome emphasizes energy conservation & efficiency both in the construction and the continued functioning of the structure over its lifetime. Standard techniques & technologies include spray foam insulation, super insulated floors & ceilings, low E glazed windows, energy star appliances & fixtures, Compaq fluorescent & LED lights, radiant floor heating, heat pumps, zone heating, solar water panels and more.
