First entry

I can’t think of a more relevant topic today for a house plan site like this, than going “Green”. If you are buying a new home, please don’t, unless the builder has some credibility in this area. There are different ”Green” programs in different areas of the country a builder can go to be qualified to display a “seal of approval”. Don’t buy from a contractor who does not demonstrate a high level of awareness of these new standards. Most of my business is with builders, not individuals, so this could be offensive to some who ignore these principles. Sorry, not meaning to stop someone from buying your product, but I hope my plans are only built by builders with this awareness. Fortunately, this is a rapidly growing practice. One builder I know who does a great job at this, has a very nice web site illustrating their work and principles. You can see it at… http://www.theecobuilders.com
