At Moss Building & Design, we continue to take the same common sense approach to “green” that we have since before it had a name. We can offer you options for reducing, reusing, and recycling from the earliest stages of design, and we will support whatever level of green is right for you.
Pete Hampel, our resident “Grumpy Green Guy” and NARI-certified Green Professional, is tired of hearing that green is a fad or that going green has to cost a lot to be worth anything. He wants to make sure all Moss customers know that there’s no one right level of green, and that any steps in the right direction can help.
Or as Pete might say, “Doesn’t matter what kind of light bulb you’ve got if it’s turned off when it should be.”
If you want to incorporate green remodeling concepts into your home addition, kitchen, bathrooms or basement project, here are some general green remodeling ideas. Please contact us to discuss the specifics of your project.
Green Starts with Design
At the very beginning of your project is the time to honestly weigh the importance of your needs and their costs. Since you’re remodeling not building new, there will be some constraints on your design, but you can work with Moss to find the right balance of comfort for your quality of life, cost to fit your budget, and measures to protect the environment.
Material selection for inside and outside your home offers countless ways to incorporate green into your project. Working with the professionals at Moss, you will learn which ones make sense for you in terms of comfort, health, sustainability (maintenance), and cost.
Being green doesn’t start and stop with the customer. Is your contractor doing the right things? At Moss, we’ve been doing what’s right since before anyone was calling it “green.”
