These examples of health home designs reflect a growing desire for live-in spaces to become more like personal wellness sanctuaries. As a result of supporting the environment with sustainable building practices, these home environments are able to pass on healthy benefits to those who inhabit them.

Beyond just using non-toxic and all-natural materials for interior and exterior construction, new building are being created to take advantage of as many natural resources as possible, such as natural ventilation and light from the sun.

In order to make one's regard for the planet and personal health more accessible and affordable, Deltec is a California-based company that manufactures nine types of pre-fabricated homes with pre-arranged natural ventilation, sun panels and solar shading systems that follow a net-zero energy model.
