Green Building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle from siting and lot orientation, to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction.
Green buildings are designed to reduce their overall impact on human health and the environment by:
- Efficiently using energy, water, and resources
- Protecting occupant health and improving employee productivity
- Reducing waste, pollution and environmental degradation
Techniques we use include incorporating sustainable materials in their construction, water systems that reduce and reuse water, utilizing geothermal heat pumps, harnessing solar energy for water heating or energy production, and highly insulated walls, floors and roof areas to reduce energy consumption and utility costs.

We are delighted with the quality of construction. Our winter electric bills are (no kidding) about one-third of what our architect estimated. Since we live in Jackson full time - and intend to live here permanently - choosing the right builder for our home was a critically important decision. I know now that THB was the right choice.
