Building Greener

In many of my posts I have mentioned my neighborhood where we built our first home last fall.  Well, at a press conference last month, it was announced that two homes currently under construction were going green!  Now these homes are not 100% sustainable, but will considerably more energy efficient than an average home.  They will actually qualify for the Gold level of the NAHB scale which is the highest level.  These two homes are the first to be built in the area and I am so proud to have them right here.  The homes will be done this fall in time for our local parade of homes tour.  This will be a great opportunity for people to see that being green doesn’t have to be weird or ultra expensive.  I hope this will trigger more people to consider taking the step and try to be more efficient in their own homes.  I will keep you posted on the progress this homes will make and hopefully there will be more to follow.
