If you own a house, or just bought land, and want to build your new home from scratch you need to either remove or demolish the previous one. At Sunset Homes, Calgary's bespoke home builder, we care about green building and we are devoted to making our process as environmentally friendly as possible.

Sustainable building

The green building concept seeks to have a balance between design and building practices that benefit the environment in an efficient way. For us, moving your house is the first option we look at to maintain sustainable practices and lower your fees at the same time.

It helps you save in demo costs

Being professional home builders in Calgary, at Sunset Homes we prefer house removal over demolition, whenever possible. We take care of this task for our homeowners, so we take care of obtaining any necessary permits, contacting the moving company. Our main goal is to provide as much help in this process and at the same time to take care of the environment while preparing the land for your dream custom home.

Landfill reduction and waste diversion

A demolition is costly and it will create more waste than moving your house to be reused. By moving your house you will be able to divert the possible waste.

Sadly, some houses can’t be removed. If that is the case, then you can still recycle many parts, such as windows and furnishing, and still, be able to reduce demo cost and to help the environment. We will facilitate this for you if moving is not an option.

Benefits of Green Building

Sustainable practices offer many benefits to the environment and preserve natural resources, increase the value of properties, and improve life quality. Sunset Homes, Calgary inner city home builder, is a proud member of Built Green Canada and Canada Green Building Council.
