Looking for a Green Home

While most people’s perception of a green home is of  an extreme or radical departure from traditional styles and designs. In reality, most green homes now being constructed are unrecognizable as being green. With the exception of solar panels on the roof, most green homes are designed to look no different from the house next door. ”We wanted to show that you can build an exciting and affordable green-built home“ said Greg Bauer, president of Bauer and Son Construction.
