The Green Home Guide

The U.S. Green Building Council has an online Green Home Guide that is filled with great information about how to improve everything from energy efficiency and air quality to lighting, landscaping and materials use.

We found this site to be a great resource for consumers whether you are considering remodeling or not. It’s loaded with practical information from a leading authority on green home building and remodeling.

As state building codes begin to increasingly mandate efficiency in new homes you can lower costs and maintain your homes competitive value by implementing more “green” features into your home.
