If you are someone who is concerned with preserving the planet and you want to build a home that will allow you to make your own kind of impact, alternative construction methods may be the right choice for you. A green home is a type of house that is designed to be both sustainable and environmentally friendly.

While we believe that preservation of the planet is already a major reason to go green, there are other motivators as well. Many green construction methods will not only save you money while the home is being built, but it will also save you a lot of money in the long run as well. Additionally, building a home using local material and labor will also keep transport pollution to a minimum as well.
