Green building means designing and constructing a home as well as improving the way that homes use energy, water, and materials to provide a healthy living environment. Our sustainable building practices, products, and materials, including ENERGY STAR® appliances are all ways we provide you with more energy and cost-efficient home. Our designers have taken into consideration insulation, flooring, window placement for natural lighting, air circulation, and the use of energy-efficient appliances and lighting.
Building a green home begins with ENERGY STAR blue because the first thing you should consider when you begin building your new home is energy efficiency. By purchasing one of our exclusive ENERGY STAR house plans, we’ve done the work for you.
