Green Building


Certified Green Professional (CGP):  What’s it mean? Click here.

Every potential customer asks us about our commitment to “green” building science and methodology. The truth is, we’ve been building “green” since day one (back then it was called “building smart”). In fact, every single home we’ve ever built employs the “green” principles and technologies of energy efficiency, sustainability, healthier indoor air quality, and smaller carbon footprint. We have always, and continue to spend an enormous amount of time studying new products and different ways to build more efficiently and with less environmental impact in the effort to bring a superior product to our clientele. From using sustainable, energy efficient, and non-toxic materials, to employing the latest construction methods, to designing homes using architectural daylighting techniques, we strive to build the most cost effective, comfortable, enjoyable, healthy, and energy efficient homes possible.  While many of our standard features are already “green,” our process involves educating our clients as to the cost, payback, and overall VALUE of every possible “green” opportunity specific to their project. This assures that they can then make educated decisions which best suit their goals and budget.

Warning: “Green” is the new sales buzzword–we see so many false claims, and sketchy “technology.”  In fact, many builders who were marketing “green” heavily have curiously backed off of their “UN-sustainable” claims, promises, and guarantee’s…

Do your homework! (Or come talk to us… we’ve done ours.)
