Building green is about the whole system of your home and how it relates to both your indoor environment and the durability and longevity of your home. It is a comprehensive look at how the structure will be built , lived in and used , versus just implementing a bunch of green products.

Whatever your interests, the value of green building for your project can save money immediately and in the long-term.
A lot of the “common sense” aspects of actual construction building provided for by Castle Rock Homes does not have to increase upfront costs while constructing its energy-efficient projects. Quality of windows, air stop infiltration practices, sheathing, construction materials used, water-saving fixtures are just a few that fall into this category.
For those that are not just looking at upfront costs but looking at their operating costs over time and see how the benefits of those aspects work may be interested in alternative energy systems.
