Green Homes with modular approach

It was good to see our local home builders start advertising new home building in 2008 to feature green homes. It fits the goal of creating green communities where homes and other commercial buildings are built green.
Considering the 3 D modeling and design technology we now see modular home builders experiencing the demand for green homes. One can build in modules these homes and assemble the pieces on site in very short time. You can save materials and get high quality construction.
So many new ideas are now in practice that future only can be brighter as we see such homes built in our communities. No worries about big unions raising the labor costs or bad weather delaying the construction. Only better days are ahead for the Green building initiatives.

Schools are perfect for green design and some states have special programs to define the design guidelines.
For example California, New York have adopted a program call CHPS under high performance schools.
There are manufacturers that have built school under modular approach. Now Green modular schools are possible.
If you send an E-mail to my account I can guide you further.

Green homes are gaining a lot of popularity as people try to find ways to reduce their energy bills and help better their environment.

Modular and prefab green homes are definitely a cost saving solution to any consumer who wants a green home, but cannot afford to personally design their own.

Great article.

Tim's supportive comment is welcome and timely. The stigma attached to the word "prefab" should go away when the public learns that it means "pre-engineered" and energy efficient homes.Manufacturer's of such homes need to educate the public about the process and quality of their product.
