What Makes A Home Green?

Green building means designing, siting and constructing a home as well as improving the way that homes use energy, water, and materials to provide a healthy living environment. Our architects and designers make it their priority to embrace sustainable building practices and the use of eco-friendly products and materials whenever possible, which is why all their green plans have been awarded the "Designed to Earn the ENERGY STAR®."
Benefits of Building Green

As consumers continue to learn more and more about green building, architects, designers and builders are starting to incorporate more green features into their new homes. Thanks to new technology and products, consumers can build their dream home without sacrificing aesthetics.
Green Home Checklist

Since green building is still a relatively new process, it's a good idea to research green building on your own so you know what to look for when choosing your site, home plan, builder and sustainable products.
