The green building movement has been gaining a lot of steam during the last few years as consumers and municipalities begin to demand more energy efficient and sustainable homes. At a recent green building conference, there was a lot of chatter about the responsibilities that builders have to better educate consumers about the benefits of going green. There are a lot of new products on the market that can help home owners become better stewards of the environment and in the process put more money in their pockets. Nation’s Building News recently did an article that addresses these very topics. If you haven’t keep pace with the green building trend, you’ll find this an interesting read. It will also help you become a more informed consumer, especially if you are in the market for a new home. Of course any of the Preferred Builders at The Founders Club can also help you design and build a greener home.
