Eco-friendly Green Homes

"Bamboo flooring harvested from responsibly managed forests, energy-conscious fluorescent lighting, cement-fiber siding to maximize insulation, carpet manufactured from recycled materials."

More and more people in central Virginia, and across the nation, are building green homes to do their part to help the environment. Here's a great article from the "Daily Progress" newspaper in Charlottesville about one homeowner who went the extra mile:


She bought a lot of her building supplies from Nature Neutral on Greenbrier Drive in Albemarle County. Nature Nurture offers “environmentally preferable” pressure treated lumber, sustainably harvested wood for flooring and trim, paints, insulation, piping products and more.

What do you think? Is this the future of home building?
