Here at Coastal Modular Group we are making every effort to make a difference in home building. One of the biggest topics in modern home design is being building green, which is why we are proud to be Eco Defensive Certified builders. To make more moves in the right direction, our designs keep upon the latest trends in green building and designing so you will benefit from more efficient and environmentally friendly products.
Recently, we have found this amazing online series called “The Green Police.” The hosts, Michael Anschel and Carl Seville, recently attended the 2014 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo to find products you can truly call “green.” From masonry to irrigation and more, you get an inside look at some of the best products on the market.
Although you would expect us to focus on the masonry and wall paneling products because it relates directly to home construction, we found two products we thought our customers would love.
First, if you don’t already know, Coastal Modular Group has an in-house interior designer. When is comes to green interiors, many people may think re-purposed wood furnishings or maybe those CFL swirly light bulbs that were all the rage and saved you a few dollars each year. However, our designer is looking very forward to the mass acceptance of the new OLEDS ( organic LEDs) lighting systems. It only takes about two or three watts to power these lights, but rather than us explain, watch the pros this video:
OLEDS Soon To Make Modular Homes in NJ Much More Energy Efficient
The Second product we are very excited for is the Water Fence designed by 15-year-old Steven McDowell. Wouldn’t it be nice to save 320 gallons of water with just one fence panel? Plus, it looks way nicer than your average rain-barrel. Although we are in the rainy season, it is important to remember New Jersey has had pretty severe droughts in the past. See how awesome this fence looks and works in the following video:
