Green Building 101 ~ For Homeowners, Builders & Realtors.Green Building Ct.

“Green Building” is getting a lot of hype lately, but what exactly is it?

Green is a term used in today’s society to reflect on ways to save energy, resources and live a healthier life in a cleaner environment. It includes such practices as Recycling, Reusing and Reducing. These practices can be used in home building, home renovations, personal habits, lifestyles, land improvement and management. The costs of these green features can range from zero to hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars but over the life cycle of the product you will save money, time, and reduce the effect on the environment.

Over the past year I have written a few articles on the subject and I have provided the top 10 links for easy access.
