Building Green is being environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a home's life-cycle: from siting to design, construction, operation, and maintenance.....
It’s the little things we do to protect our earth but it’s also the big things we can do especially when building your own home. By being your own builder you have complete control over how well your home is insulated, the use of high performance materials, and the ability to reduce waste at your job site.
First, our homes come with the Energy Star Certification. We supply insulation and Energy Star materials where applicable to ensure an Energy Star home. Your home will also be inspected and tested on site by a 3rd party HERS (Home Energy Rating Score) Energy Rater.
Secondly, we provide panelized walls and trusses. Panelization means that walls and trusses are engineered, precision cut with a computer layout, and fabricated true and straight on a layout table so every piece of wood is used until only inches are left to be recycled. Panelization has many benefits – reduced job site and thus landfill waste, ease of construction, time saving, and structurally built.
This is how we've put together our package home since 1995 and we believe it is still the best way to build a home. Now we have a term for this - Building Green!
