Building Homes That Are Environmentally Friendly & Cost-Efficient
More and more people are discovering the benefits of green home construction. Owning and living in one of these homes can be good for your health, your wallet and the environment.
At Artisan Custom Homes, we have been utilizing green building strategies in the construction of our homes for years. (Read about Davidson's first certified green home, built by Artisan.) Our focus has always been on delivering quality construction and our high building standards happen to also coincide with many green building techniques.
The founders and partners of Artisan, Jay Johnstone and John Shryock, have each earned the title of Certified Green Professional from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). This designation recognizes builders, remodelers and other industry professionals who incorporate green building principles into homes- without driving up the cost of construction. The certification requires 24 hours of NAHB-approved coursework, and additional continuing education every two years.
Artisan Custom Homes are built to green certification and ENERGY STAR® compliance specifications. Criteria include energy, water and resource efficiency, lot and site development, indoor environmental quality, and homeowner education. Our company is also a member of the U.S. Green Building Council, a non-profit community of leaders working to make green buildings available to everyone within a generation.
