Can A Green Home Be Yellow?

Welcome to our blog, and to my very first post. I decided to create this blog as a way to track the construction of a ‘green home’ in Davidson, North Carolina.

We have a model home, and in it there is a banner that says “Davidson’s Green Home Builder.” Of the three houses pictured, two of them are painted yellow and the other green. My six year old daughter looked at that banner and said “Daddy, here’s what I don’t understand: you call yourself a green builder but most of your houses are yellow.”

As recently as a couple of years ago, my knowledge of green building was at about the same level as my daughter. Having built a green home in 2009, I feel I have a pretty good understanding of the process, and would like to use this site to share the process with others. In the meantime, I hope to gain a better understanding of how to use blogspot!

So, now that you’ve found this blog, I hope you find it informative and perhaps even a bit entertaining. We’re in the process of finalizing plans for our next LEED-certified home, so check back soon for updates.
