The Best Place to Build Green

March 14, 2016

When you live in the desert, energy efficient housing isn’t just a luxury, it should be a necessity. You can harness the power of the sun to save you money and reduce your carbon footprint, all while enjoying the pleasures of contemporary architecture. Residents in New Mexico can turn to us at Sunlight Homes to construct what will be a house that you can feel confident about calling home!

For those living in New Mexico, where is the best place to build a green home? The answer is – anywhere! Depending on your lifestyle, New Mexico has some of the best cities to construct a custom energy efficient home in the nation. Whether you prefer to be further out with few neighbors, or close to shopping and entertainment, you’ll find the perfect place to build your dream home in the Land of Enchantment!


For those who enjoy living in a busy metropolitan area, Albuquerque is the city for you. Residents can enjoy local boutiques and upscale restaurants along the infamous Nob Hill area, and just a short drive away you can hike, boulder, and rock climb. There are many neighborhoods that are secluded, allowing for the perfect amount of space to raise a family while still being just a walk away from grocery stores, restaurants, schools, and more. Sunlight Homes has constructed beautiful, SIP and Passive Solar designed homes and apartments throughout the Albuquerque area!


Some folks prefer to be a little further away from it all, and that’s where Placitas comes in. Watch the rich, glorious New Mexican sunsets from the comfort of your backyard without the interruption of tall buildings and the sounds of traffic. The state is well known for its temperate climate, and for those who enjoy the outdoors without being in the middle of nowhere, Placitas is your home. Sunlight Homes’ southern facing windows and passive solar designs can make use of the open environment while creating a home that is uniquely your own.

However, these are merely two examples of great places to settle in New Mexico. From Albuquerque, to Edgewood, to Placitas and beyond, the climate, city amenities, and outdoor opportunities make this state one of the best places to construct your own custom green home, and Sunlight Homes is here to help, and has been since 1975! Get in touch with us today to get started on a home you can feel good about.
