Photo Credit: EarthCraftHouse.comAn EarthCraft Home is the idea that a healthy, comfortable home can be built that reduces utility bills, while protecting the environment.  The idea is to minimize environmental impacts, and to follow a systematic approach to homebuilding that utilizes the importance of understanding how the different components of a home work together.  This means that the home performs better, is more economical for the homeowner, but it costs a little more than your normal construction costs.

This can be achieved by using certain qualifying materials, addressing energy efficiency, indoor air quality, waste management, resource efficiency, durability, and water conversation.  While EarthCraft Homes may be a little more expensive up front, the idea is that it should save you money over the long run with reduced utilities, maintenance, and repairs.
