Why Build Green?
Why Build Green? | Green Resources | Our Green Projects | ENERGY STAR
|Building green means incorporating environmental considerations and resource efficiency into every step of the home building and land development process to minimize environmental impact. That means that during the design, construction, and operation of a home, the home's overall impact on the environment is taken into account. Mike Caylor Construction is a proponent of building green and holds a CGB (Certified Green Professional) designation.
We are also following the guidelines in order to receive the ENERGY STAR for all of our custom homes.
