What does green building mean?
In a nutshell, it means making choices that help protect and sustain our environment and our communities.
It means reducing dependence on fossil fuels, extracted underground metals and minerals by promoting the use of solar power, efficient insulating materials and wood-burning heating systems. And it means minimizing the use of chemicals and other manufactured substances that can accumulate in nature. Lastly, it means avoiding activities that harm life-sustaining ecosystems. Using sustainably harvested lumber is a great place to start.
Adopting a green building mindset is a great way to help protect our environment. I work with you at every stage of your project to help determine what green building choices we can make for a better finished product and a healthier environment.
