green building interiors madison wi

It’s easy for some remodelers or builders to call themselves “green.” As a “green building company” or a remodeler using “sustainable design practices” or “sustainable construction”, we don’t just throw these words around as catch phrases or buzz words. Since we began remodeling homes, we have kept in mind the simple fact that we were, in effect, recycling homes. Our focus on ecological consciousness is part of our fabric. We don’t think twice when it comes to efficient insulation detailing, ongoing efforts to reduce waste and control run-off during construction, construction and materials that have a longer life cycle, and the use of no- and low-VOC finishes.

There is a truly holistic view when it comes to green building and design. Because we do both sustainable design and construction, when you ask us about recycled and sustainably produced products, as well as other energy efficient strategies, we can answer honestly and offer efficient strategies to enhance the comfort, appearance and value of your home. green building kitchens madison wi
