How & where to build a house

12 Feb 2018 | : blog

 

 

 

Here in the southwest corner of Utah new houses are mostly being built by developers in house farms.

The ground is torn apart and lowered by many huge machines and dug into and compacted and roads and walls, and sewer and water lines and catchment pond areas for water run off.

What a mess.

There is a better way to build.

Take the Kayenta development for instance.

When a house is planned, markers are made in the landscape just a bit bigger than the house it’s self will be.

That part is excavated and the house is build disturbing the area very little.

This is how a finished house looks:

Now isn’t that a nicer way to build? ┬áLeaving the landscaping as God made it?

Working with nature and not against it.
