Getting Started in Green Building — A Primer for Beginners
Unclear on what it means to build green?
Green building means building houses that are energy efficient, durable, and won't make people sick after they move in.
It also means using less materials and making better use of the ones you buy.
We can do this by designing and building houses...
- To last a long time
- To use less water and energy
- That are healthy to live in
In short, we can build green by building even better houses than we've been building—we take the next step in quality.
