Why Build Green?

Green home design and construction is the practice of creating healthier homes for the well-being of family, community, and the world in which we live by implementing resource-efficient models of construction, renovation, operation, and maintenance.

At every location he has or builds, Jeff Berlin has committed himself to building custom homes that greatly exceed the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) published Model Green Building Guidelines. The NAHB's Model Green Home Building Guidelines were designed to move environmentally-friendly home building concepts and practices further into the mainstream marketplace in the hope that builders would adopt their benefits. The concept of building a “green home” was not new to Berlin. Jeff has been building energy efficient, sustainable construction for over a decade before it became a national movement. “Going Green” isn’t just for “tree huggers”. It’s for ALL OF US who should be concerned about the environment and our families, and want to be good stewards of our communities.” Those suggested guidelines were published in 2007, yet Berlin has been building in excess of the NAHB’s highest level of Green building since 1997. Further, Berlin has since expanded his normal practice of “green building” to now greatly exceed those Guidelines, and now offers to his customers his most comprehensive green building package ever, and does this STANDARD……at no extra cost to the consumer. This translates into tremendous benefits to the homeowner and the environment, some of which are:

  • Preserving natural resources means leaving more for future generations to enjoy.
  • Better energy efficiency means comfort and savings for the homeowner and less pollution for the earth.
  • Reduced water usage means savings for the homeowner and a reduced strain on our limited water supplies.
  • Healthier indoor air means comfort, health, and peace of mind for the family.
  • Using durable materials means reduced maintenance, savings, and more leisure time for the home owner.

As the owner of a “Green” home you will benefit by having substantially lower operating costs, increased comfort and indoor air quality, a drastically reduced “carbon footprint”, and an end product which will last longer, requires less maintenance, and generates a higher resale value. Today’s home buyer simply is unaware of the dramatic benefits they can have from a properly built Custom designed Green Home, and the fact that they can do all this for the same price competitors are charging for traditionally built housing is revolutionary. Each home is custom designed to the buyer’s requirements. The whole process is custom, affordable, easy, and ultimately very rewarding for the new owner.
