What is Green Building?
We`re proud to be part of the green home building movement! We understand that the word “Green” probably means something different to everybody. There are lots of principals behind the green movement. Some of the different areas that help make up green building are:
- Lot Design, Preparation & Site Layout
- Resource Efficiency
- Energy Efficiency
- Water Usage
- Indoor Air Quality
- Operation & Homeowner Education
- Global & Environmental Impact
Why should I build Green?
There are many good reasons! The first is protecting the environment. Some of the most pressing environmental issues are our ever-increasing global population, dwindling fresh water supply and decreasing air quality. Another reason for building green is that it can help you save money as well. With rising cost of utilities, consumers are more concerned than ever about products that will keep utility bills in line. Building green can improve your home’s air quality, which in turn can have a long-term effect on your heath.
If you are interested in adding and certifying your new home as a “Green Built” home, we are glad to include the services and guide you through the process.
