Vancouver Island green builders
We are hoping to build a 2000 sq ft “pretty good house” near Victoria on Vancouver Island. In looking at local builders, several of them seem to have some experience with green building.
However, all of the examples on their websites look like projects that far exceed our budget. I know that builders will put their most impressive examples on the web, but it is also hard to know if they do more down-to-earth projects.
With the current building boom, it is harder to find contractors, but we can’t afford $1,000,000 for a home! Does anyone (Malcolm Taylor?) have recommendations for local people? Or, even better, do any of them lurk here?
I will be talking to some of them directly, but I appreciate any feedback from people here.
Postscript: Having lurked here for a long time, I wanted to say thank-you to everyone that posts such great information, in particular Martin Holladay. You maintain an invaluable forum and set the tone for very respectful discussion – a rarity on the internet!
