Custom Home Zone 3A
I’m planning my custom home and I would like some advice on how to make it efficient and durable as possible. It will be located southwest of Atlanta, GA near the Alabama state line. It stays hot and humid most of the year with mild/wet winters. I don’t want to go overkill on the construction if I don’t have to but I want this thing to as waterproof and insulated as can be. Any and all advice on the efficiency and durability would be great. I have blueprints of what I’m building but not online. I’ll include a picture that I saw on this site as a representation. It will be square/pyramid hip roof modern cabin with a full wrap around porch and walkout basement. The house itself will be 32×32 with an 8ft wraparound porch. Probably no dormer like this picture, even though the attic will have a 12ft center point. The roof will not change pitch at the porch. The house will be on a slope with the front facing the East and trees surrounding the area.
