Builder Green Building Product Line

After many discussions with the FreeGreen Builder Community, the Free Green company has developed the concept for the Builder Product Line (to be out August 2008). The intent and implementation of this new Builder Green Building Product Line is as follows:
  • The designs are going to be very mainstream (trying to hit the masses).
  • The virtual tours of these designs will focus on energy savings, elevation changes, and building details rather than copious interior renderings.
  • Each home plan will come with multiple elevations to allow builders to use the same plan multiple times in a single development
  • Much thought and detail will go into the construction documents on how to make them easy to use for builders and how to show and teach good green building techniques.
  • As with all of our plans these will continue to come with Energy Models, Specification Lists, LEED-H\NAHB checklists, etc.
  • We in the process of deciding what to do with the CAD files for these plans, but in some way, shape, or form, they will be available

The demand for entry level and move-up sustainable homes] is there, Wax says. The problem has been that until now there was no access.

The founders have been working together solely on residential green design and construction projects for more than five years. During that time together they have designed and constructed (with their own hands) a national award-winning off-grid home, designed solar-powered green homes ranging in size from 700 to 7,000 square feet, conducted residential energy modeling for Fortune 500 companies, and consulted to heads of state on various foreign energy policies.
