Here are some of the dual benefits:
In neighborhoods with smaller lot sizes and homes positioned closer together, there is less yard-care, which saves you time and money, and reduced development of open space, which conserves land. There is also the reduced impact of lawn equipment emissions, fertilizing, over-watering, etc.
Revitalizing established neighborhoods, as opposed to building further away from city centers, reduces sprawl, which conserves land, and reduces commuter traffic.
Revitalizing established neighborhoods also reduces traffic congestion by increasing housing choices near alternative transportation options.
Communities with sidewalks and human pathways that enable walking, hiking, biking, and skating, promote a healthier lifestyle. Better health leads to lower healthcare costs and a greater appreciation for our natural and built habitats.
Recycling construction materials on-site helps reduce the consumption of natural resources and lessens the waste piled up in our landfills. By reducing demand, we can stabilize prices and pass along any savings to the home buyer.
Building energy efficient homes that meet Energy Star and Green Built standards means our homes burn less heating fuel and use less electricity, saving you money every single month of the year.
