The IDEA HOME was designed to demonstrate that Built Green features can be easily and economically incorporated into any new home
and will offer the owners substantial savings in operating costs, month-after-month, year-after-year.
The links to the left will take you to descriptions of specific features that lower the cost of owning and
operating a Built Green home.
Remember,the IDEA HOME is a real world test, built on a tight budget, limiting Built Green features to only a premium of about 5%
of the overall home.
The goal is to let you see for yourself, and prove for yourself, that a Built Green home is the best overall value on the market
