Are these homes energy efficient and “green”?
Our homes’ energy efficiency performs significantly better than conventionally framed homes. You will use less energy to heat and cool your home, which reduces your monthly bills and decreases the home’s environmental impact. In addition, the timbers used in our framing come from a family-owned forest and mill that has been successfully managed for generations. Our high-quality homes are designed to last far longer than the average home, which also decreases the home’s environmental footprint. Most designs can be Energy Star and/or LEED certified. Due to our factory-optimized production, there are very few wasted materials during the entire construction process. Habitat’s durable and environmentally sound building materials, along with your choice of sustainable interior finish materials, minimize your home’s environmental impact.
