Energy-saving-homeAs Certified Green Building Professionals, we have the knowledge to incorporate environmental considerations into every phase of the building process to minimize environmental impact. We work with you to make choices that will positively impact your homes energy and resource efficiency, as well as indoor air quality. Our goal is to build the best, most sustainable and practical homes we can for our clients and for the environment.

A successful project is one that encompasses all of the above. It is on budget, on schedule, and attention has been paid to all the details. It is precision craftsmanship. It is quality. But ultimately it is a happy client, one who will be proud to show off their project and tell their friends and neighbors that Stockell Custom Homes did it, and can do it for them, too!

Green building, also known as high-performance building or sustainable construction, is designing and constructing with a focus on environmental considerations and resource efficiency to minimize the home’s environmental impact. Green building is a practical response to a variety of issues that affect all of us — like increasing energy prices, waning water resources and changing weather patterns.

Choosing green means making intentional decisions about:

  • Energy-efficiency improvements: high-performance building envelope, efficient HVAC systems, high-performance windows and energy-efficient appliances and lighting. Learn more about our Energy Star New Homes
  • Water conservation: water-efficient appliances and fixtures, filtration systems and drought-resistant or low-maintenance landscaping
  • Resource conservation: using materials and techniques like engineered wood and wood alternatives, recycled building materials, sustainably harvested lumber and more durable products
  • Indoor environmental quality considerations: effective HVAC equipment, formaldehyde-free finishes, low-allergen materials, and products with minimum off-gassing or low volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Site design planning: minimizing disruption and preserving open space
  • Home owner education through manuals and operating guides

Stockell Custom Homes cares about the environment and building you a high performance, energy-efficient home.
