Marcus Hiles On Ongoing Efforts to Safeguard the Planet

Marcus Hiles On Ongoing Efforts to Safeguard the Planet

In addition to the ecologically sound and well-furnished details of the properties themselves, Marcus Hiles also guarantees that providing green spaces is a top priority within Western Rim’s developments. Communities center on expansive urban and private parks, often providing on-site walking trails and dog run areas, while preserving existing trees and vegetation on and around the properties; the native greenery removes air pollutants while storing and sequestering carbon dioxide, lowering greenhouse gas emissions overall by reducing energy demand. As Hiles has continues to build upmarket homes in the Dallas, Austin, Houston and San Antonio suburbs, he has added to the natural beauty of those regions by increasing the tree canopy beyond their pre-developed state—more than 3,000 trees were planted last year alone. “We will continue to exhibit leadership in energy conservation and respect for the environment, while engaging our communities in ongoing efforts to safeguard the planet,” Hiles confirms.

Bad Insulation Causing Energy Bill Hikes, According To Hiles

Bad Insulation Causing Energy Bill Hikes, According To Hiles

When temperatures peak, air conditioners work overtime. According to real estate developer Marcus Hiles, traditional roofing insulation is the culprit to blame for this. A home’s roof takes in the sun’s radiant energy, heating the attic and air ducts and increasing cooling costs. Hiles has determined that highly reflective radiant barrier roof panels installed in the attic will instead reflect the heat, reducing heat transfer from the roof’s underside up to 97 percent. “This cheap trick will keep your attic up to 30 degrees cooler,” he says.

Marcus Hiles Discusses Implied Spaces In Modern Homes

Marcus Hiles Discusses Implied Spaces In Modern Homes

Marcus Hiles says that homes are being built with open floor plans and adaptable rooms that can easily be adjusted to accommodate new arrivals for growing families, as flexibility becomes an increasingly important part of renter’s home-finding requirements. The idea of implied spaces—areas marked by different materials or colors in the ceilings or floors—is a chic way to make interiors appear larger and avoid traditional obstructions like multiple walls. Cutting-edge design is all about breaking through barriers: larger windows bring in extra natural light and often replace walls outright, while helping to meld the indoors with the outside world. In order to make homes desirable places to spend time, hot tubs, fitness areas and spas are appearing more frequently in private residences, making relaxation and fitness easier than ever. And as the habit of cooking gourmet-worthy meals has grown, kitchens have followed suit: with restaurant-grade appliances and furniture like islands, they are typically allotted additional square footage to become the center of the house, overtaking dining and living rooms as the place families come together.
