What is green building?

Green Building is the practice of building more sustainable, healthier, and more energy efficient buildings. There is no one single way to build a green building, There are many  ways for homebuilders to go green and many programs available to certify homes as being green built.

What makes a green home?

Green homes incorporate environmental considerations and resource efficiency into every step of the building process, to minimize environmental impact. The design, construction, and operation of a home must focus on energy and water efficiency, resource efficient building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, and must take the home's overall impact on the environment into account. However, many of the processes and technologies that go into a green home happen behind the scenes and behind the walls.
