It means the environmental impact of your home is minimized during and after the building process.

What a fantastic company! Not only are they responsive, a great value and very good at what they do, but you can tell how much they care. It’s not about the money, and I couldn’t be happier with the decision I made working with Evergreen Homecrafters. If I could give them a “6 Star” I would.

Jon is very knowledgeable about building a green home. He worked well with our architect, and with us at every step of the process. He checked and double checked every choice we made. He never installed a piece of floor, piece of tile, light fixture or appliance without confirming with us that it was what we had ordered/chosen.
