What does Green Building & Design really mean?

Green homes are designed to minimize environmental impact and maximize resource efficiency.  The design, construction, and operation of a home must focus on energy, water, and resource efficiency while taking into consideration the indoor environmental quality and overall impact on the environment.   There are generally five areas or categories that deal with the impact construction has on the environment.

  • Site work that minimizes the environmental impact of the house during and after construction.
  • Energy efficiency.
  • Water efficiency.
  • Use of recycled materials and materials whose production can be sustained without harming people or the environment (sustainable products).
  • Healthful indoor-air quality, limiting the use of materials that have VOCs (volatile organic compound)
