Long before “green” became an industry buzzword and a national referendum, we’ve wanted to be involved in building energy efficient projects throughout the Minneapolis metro area. Green building, simply put, is the process of building homes that require less energy, water, and materials to build and maintain.
While the trend of identifying as a green builder might come and go, we’ll continue to focus on one thing – incorporate responsible building practices and a long-range view of a home’s uses and lifespan.
The goal of every new home we build is to qualify for the rigorous Energy Star rating.
Green home building components can include:
- HVAC (heating and air conditioning)
- Windows and exterior doors
- Whole home automation
We choose materials carefully, and hire an energy consultant to test energy efficiency at various stages in the home building process.
