Green buildings take many forms.

Some, such as those built with natural materials or with a large solar array on the roof you can recognize from miles away. However, as green building creeps into the mainstream, green homes may look more and more like every other house on the block.

The buildings on our monthly tours and in our case studies exemplify the new generation of green homes, some of which are certified under the GreenBuilt Homes Program.  These homes incorporate all or some of the following green building principles: Sustainable site development, energy and water efficiency, responsible resource and material use and indoor air quality. 

Examples include:

Site Development:

  • Extensive erosion control
  • Protection of existing trees

Energy Efficiency:

  • Increased insulation
  • Use of compact fluorescent lightbulbs
  • High efficiency HVAC systems and water heaters

Water Efficiency:

  • Native landscaping
  • Low flow water fixtures


  • Recycled content insulation, carpet or decking
  • Sustainably harvested wood
  • Alternative wall systems

Indoor Air Quality:

  • Low emitting finishes including paints and stains
  • Improved fresh air ventilation

Put your green building or home on our monthly tour!
