At Habitations Home Plans we try to be a bit choosy with what we call out on our plans and the details we show.  Just like with our peanut butter, hopefully you recall “Choosy mom’s choose Jif”  🙂  Anyway, with the big surge in Green Building, energy savings, renewable materials, etc. we have definitely seen some great products but we have also seen some products that are not worth the money and effort and some that are completely false claims and don’t have anything to do with green building.

One thing Habitations has seen and is working to incorporate in our corner of the industry is the Advanced Framing Techniques as well as developing better ways to achieve a thermal break in exterior walls which improves the efficiency of a structure immensely.
