NextGen | First to the Future in Florida – Building 101

Building 101

Okay, who is ready for another course in Building 101: First to the Future Design. These first episodes of my NextGen project are filled with the facts and stats you need to consider when designing an eco-friendly abode. So even though it may not look too exciting now, the layout and foundation are the most important! And the latest episode is all about the continuous load path…

Remember: sustainability is important, but building a storm-resistant home is especially critical with the extreme weather conditions we’re experiencing today. And if you don’t live in Florida, chances are you still have to consider protecting your home from the elements.

Besides that, we’ve been making progress in a bunch of different areas of the home, like this dining table for instance. Pretty high-end, huh?
