Today I wanted to tell you about one of our partners, Earthcraft House Virginia. EarthCraft delivers a voluntary green building program to serve as a blueprint for healthy, comfortable homes that reduce energy consumption and protect the environment in the Commonwealth.
Any size and type of home can be certified to an EarthCraft House by following the technical guidelines of the program. The guidelines are flexible and allow for a variety of approaches to environmental construction. The technical guidelines can be applied to all new construction, including single-family homes, duplexes, townhouses, low-rise apartments and condominiums. EarthCraft House is also one of the first green building programs to have a certification process for both new construction and renovations for multifamily projects. EarthCraft House designs are based upon ENERGY STAR standards for energy efficiency.
Both ENERGY STAR and EarthCraft meet strict guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. These homes save money on utility bills, provide a more comfortable living environment with better indoor air quality, and help protect the environment.
