Alliance Homes has partnered with Skyline Homes and Karsten Homes to build new, green energy certified homes. Not only are these homes built responsibly and with little waste, they also have low utility bills-saving you money!

Love to cook or spend time in your already green kitchen, but want some more green ideas? Check out Martha Stewart’s Website for more tips and ideas. Below are a few of the tips:

Say Yes to Convection Because it continually circulates heated air, thereby reducing cooking time, convection uses 20% less energy on average than a conventional oven.

Green Dish Washing Liquid For greasy pots and pans, try scouring with salt. For burned saucepans, fill the pan half full with water, spoon in baking soda, let it soak overnight, and bring to a boil.

Unclog Your Sink Naturally Don’t worry, it sounds more complicated than it actually is. Boiling water converts baking soda to sodium carbonate, a more effective drain cleaner. Pour 1 cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by 3 cups of boiling water, and let science take over. It’s a much safer choice than commercial drain cleaners, which can harm skin, eyes, lungs, and the water supply.

Fill Up the Freezer The more full it is, the less energy it uses to keep food frozen.

Try Reusable Towels  Paper towels cause waste, even if you stick to the recycled brands. Microfiber towels grip dirt and dust like a magnet and don’t let go. After use, toss the towels into the laundry and reuse over and over.

Hopefully these tips can help you out in your kitchen but also give insight into the many ways to go green. You can start by going green in your kitchen through appliances and these Eco-friendly ideas, but you can incorporate other ideas to other rooms throughout your home!

Skyline’s in-house quality control team, as well as independent third party agencies, inspects your home during each phase of the construction process. These codes ensure that your home is built to specific structural, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and safety standards.

QUALITY MATERIALSAll Skyline homes are built in an environmentally controlled manufacturing facility with no exposure to the outside elements. The same holds true for our building material storage. They store all building materials in an environmentally controlled warehouse, with no exposure to the outdoor elements. All materials are stored per the supplier’s recommendations. Their own internal Quality Assurance Process requires a weekly inspection of stored materials to assure they are in ready-to-use condition. Their suppliers, independent third Party inspection provider, and other governing agencies also conduct periodic inspections of our stored materials.

QUALITY HOME DESIGNSkyline homes are designed to enhance the quality of today’s lifestyles. They have a home to fit whatever stage of life you are in. First time home buyers, a family that’s growing, or an empty nest can all find homes to fit their needs. Their design team had created a portfolio of floor plans, decors, and optional amenities to ensure the flexibility needed to satisfy your housing needs.
