Green. Sustainable Building and Design

Green. Sustainable Building and Design



Truehome Design.Build has deep experience with green, sustainable design and construction. Our approach is to choose those systems that not only protect the planet, but also manage operating costs in the long run.

We also have extensive experience with the relocation and adaptive restoration of historic structures. We know how to respect the character and style of historic buildings while converting them to livable, energy efficient work and living space.

Shiloh Travis is a registered green builder in the Austin environs and has extensive experience with designing and permitting such systems. He serves both registered architects and retail design/build clients. Both Christopher and Shiloh have long experience in designing and building homes in remote and rural locations.

Here is a list of systems and building methods we often recommend and have experience installing:

  • Geothermal ground source air conditioning
  • Envelope insulation systems
  • Smart Home Technologies
  • Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS)
  • LED lighting
  • Rain water storage systems
  • Solar pool heating
  • Aerobic and low pressure dosing septic systems
  • “Off the grid” solar, wind and DC wiring systems
  • Remote site water filtration and purification systems
