a High Performance House
This house is green

A high performance, orgreen,” home is built to a higher standard from the ground up.   It is more comfortable, more durable, requires less maintenance and is exceptionally energy efficient, saving thousands of dollars per year in fuel bills.    A green-built, high performance home also protects your family’s health, conserves scarce resources, and helps reduce environmental problems like global warming.    And it will have greater resale value than homes built with outmoded technology.
