Creating a healthier home for your family in Charleston
We know how important it is to help your family live the healthiest lifestyle possible. Proper nutrition, activities to help them move, and a good night’s rest all play a part in that.
And so does your environment—especially your home.
In fact, one of the benefits of building new construction with Saussy Burbank is knowing your home is already one step ahead. Unlike older houses built with dangerous chemicals and materials – such as asbestos in insulation or lead paint and pipes throughout the home – new construction utilizes only the latest, safest and best materials to build your home.
Starting with a healthy foundation is only the first step. With a few conscious design choices and added elements, you can ensure you’re creating the healthiest home for your entire family.
6 Ways to Build a Home That Keeps You Healthy
Plan Space to Garden
Whether you purchase a house with ample outdoor space for in-ground gardening or are interested in enjoying the small-home life with a patio that’s perfect for container gardening, putting your green thumb to use has many health benefits. To start, just the act of gardening itself will get you outdoors and moving. Secondly, gardening will help (hopefully) to produce a bounty of healthy fruits and vegetables to fuel your body when it comes time to harvest. Plus, in Charleston, you can grow something yummy practically year-round!

Consider your proximity to parks, walking paths, fitness centers and recreational pools that allow you to keep your wellness a priority, without being a hassle to get to.
Entertain Your Guests
You know what they say, “laughter is the best medicine”—and we think they’re right. The more frequently you entertain friends and family, the happier you’ll be and in turn, it can improve your health. Being happy has been scientifically proven to:
