What Does it Mean to Be a “Green Home Builder”?

Sustainable Building Practices
I am a born-and-raised, native Oregonian and understand the value of sustainable, “green” building practices. But building a sustainable home is not for accolades or recognition, it’s a gratifying by-product of emphasizing quality and homeowner satisfaction. I am always on the forefront of employing the use of cutting-edge materials and Green Building techniques that stress efficiency and safety. These range from the newest form of low-energy insulation, radiant floor heating, solar panels, recycled materials, and energy saving lighting. I stay informed on tax incentives and funding opportunities for my homeowners and we always discuss these during the design phase of any project. I place top-of-mind the importance of staying educated on industry leading practices and Green Design standards but never lose site of building extraordinary custom homes.
