Helping Builders Build Green Homes



Click Here to Play This Episode of The Green Gab Podcast Now!Gabbing with Michelle Foster of Home Innovation Research Labs, the VP of Innovation Services. Michelle speaks a lot with the housing financial industry to help them see the impact of an NGBS (National Green Building Standard) green certified home or project.  Taking the lower expenses of a better-built home into account in the financial process can allow more money to be spent on the asset of the home. 

Home buyers can think holistically about where they will be most comfortable, what is the smartest investment for them and will make them happiest going forward.  As we spend a lot of time indoors in our homes – our refuge, it only makes sense that our homes be comfortable and support our needs. An NGBS Green Certified Home can do just this.
Green homes are just a better place to call home!
