  1. Great Article. Thanks for introducing the importance of third party verification. As a Certified Green Professional with NAHB I strongly agree.

    One point I might share, the NAHB Guideline is now considered a ‘standard’ as it approved by ANSI last winter. I believe it is the first green program in the nation to do so.

    The “Green” movement will be disappointed as it is about the least requested area of Buyers requests. Price and quality are the two High Priority areas of concern. The vast majority want “Efficiency for economics” to keep ongoing energy costs minimized. The primary objective is affordability and that is paramount to Buyers. If you can bring any cost down and use Green, then great, if not it won’t and doesn’t matter. Every thousand dollars of additional costs eliminate too many buyers.
