Chester County Homes Going Green?

The US Green Building Council

Here in Chester County and the Main Line area I’m reminded of the “trend” towards “going green” in home design and new construction. Right after the financial crises, it’s one of the hottest real estate topics of our time. The US Green Building Council has developed the Leeds Guidelines for homes and construction planning on “going green”. Public Buildings and Municipal Buildings are trending to going Green. Several local Builders are picking up the trend as well.

Kermit The Frog sang the song, “It’s Not Easy Being Green” in another context. But as we look around our local landscape, we’re curious about how easy it is to find environmentally friendly Green Home Design here in Chester County and the Philadelphia Main Line Area. It’s definitely getting easier to be environmentally conscious with new home construction. Many builders advertise that they follow green building design and construction. Be sure to ask.

How Can Chester County Pa Home Owners Go Green?

Short of living in a totally Green Home with Solar Panels and Wind Turbines in our back yards, there are some everyday things we can do to be healthier and support the environment by going Green, even in older homes.

Green Cleaning Supplies, Energy Use and Local Harvest:

Hopefully, Kermit might find it easier being green in today’s world. And if we look around our neighborhoods, we might also find it easier to live green and be environmentally friendly too. It doesn’t hurt that going green can also save us money as well as help protect our environment.
