Our GREEN Index
The Mountain Home Show has been promoting sustainable building for many years.
Now this has become popular, and many are asking how their mountain home can be green.
This does not mean sacrifice.
It means having a home that is more comfortable, healthy, clean, and less expensive to operate.
It also means doing what is right to keep our mountains beautiful.

To make this easier for you we indexed the links to all of our pages
about designing, building, or remodeling green.
Some of these articles and homes have been on our web site for years.
New projects can be seen on our Facebook page linked at the bottom of this page.
