“There will be 1.14 million homes built in the US in 2019. If just 20% of these structures were JLH Sustainable homes, we would save 2.7 billion pounds of CO2 and, homeowners would save $2.6 billion in costs over conventional homes.”
– Jim Henderson, CEO & Founder of JLH Sustainable
Steel & Solar works
Our engineered IMP steel construction, combined with high efficiency solar, is producing more than double the power needed to run our houses.
Battery Back Up
Battery technology will allow for uninterrupted power for our houses, in the likely event of the grid being down.
Attainable & Sustainable
Our sustainable houses can be built at an “attainable” price, while still having modern design and amenities.
In the News
Our three primary goals at JLH
Design & Build Pre-Engineered Shells
Build pre-engineered shells which contractors, builders and developers can “build-out” to custom specs for each individual homeowner. These shells are made of almost 100% recycled steel, with minimal wood products. The shells are all custom engineered to meet all specifications for various codes throughout North America. Also, each home will come complete with enough solar equipment to exceed the total expected energy needs, resulting in a negative carbon footprint.
Meet the Growing Demand
Meet the growing demand for “affordable” housing needs and offer an alternative style home to downsizing baby boomers. Offering an alternative interior design for builders will allow them to provide a wider range of house options and give them a competitive advantage over other builders.
Turnkey & Maintenance Free Homes
Provide maintenance free homes which offer carefree, turnkey living for over 25 years.
With zero maintenance needed on the entire outer structure for over 25 years and 25 or more years’ life expectancy on the solar, homeowners can be free to travel or
have a seasonal home and not worry about their home.
There are many aspects to a self-sustaining home.
From energy use to water conservation to using recycled materials, self-sustaining homes should reflect efforts to reduce, reuse, and recycle in the process of building and, in the daily operation of the home.
