How We Build
What has HFHMGC learned from participating in the LEED program? Building “greener” houses isn’t complicated. By making the commitment to build more efficient housing, HFHMGC has learned that spending a little bit of extra money up-front is quickly recouped by our homeowners through lower utility bills and fewer home maintenance issues.
Our standard home now includes:
What does this mean for our future homeowners? The finished product is 40-50% more energy efficient than homes built to standard building codes, meaning lower electric and water bills for homeowners. Energy experts have estimated the average energy bill for one of our houses at about $75 per month. More durable materials like hardwood floors provide beautiful, resilient flooring that is also easy to clean and refinish. Hard-wearing finish materials such as metal roofing and fiber cement siding mean long-lasting home exteriors that require little maintenance.
