A Home Built for the Long Term:
An advantage of Built Green™ is a was of thinking that takes into consideration life-cycle costs of various materials and
components that go into the home. In the IDEA HOME, many decisions made to achieve another goal, such a lower operating costs or
healthier indoor air quality, also result in what can be referred to as "added-value." The value can be in longer product life,
lower cost of maintenance, a lower life-cycle costs, or a better quality of life of the occupants. To the left you will find links
to some of the "green" features that we believe add one or more of these values to the home.
