A Home in a Class by Itself
A New Hampshire lake house is one of thirty-six homes nationwide to earn top green certification from the National Association of Home Builders.
Cargill Construction’s first mission for building this home was to do no harm. Minimal disturbance to the building site during construction and the use of indigenous plantings counted toward the home’s Emerald certification by the National Association of Home Builders.
If you want to achieve the highest standard for green construction awarded by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), you’ll quickly learn that “When people think green, they think energy efficiency,” says Liam Cargill, vice president of Cargill Construction in Campton.
