David- The Performance House would be a great purchase for someone looking for a move in ready Green home! It's got great square footage and I'm sure the utility bills will be something to smile about.

Amanda along with the green features this is a high end custom finish home, beautiful. Also the unfinished full height basement provides extra space to grow.

David - I'm not a big Green fan, but that has a lot to do with where I live. Our energy usage here in Tennessee is probably a small fraction of what you have to pay due to the more moderate climate, and TVA energy production that is much cheaper that anywhere else in the country. Besides all that, I do believe we should be smart about our home construction, and I tell buyers that new construction standards bring a lot energy savings in the future. THis is a great looking house.

David, building "Green" is not necessarily in the forefront of buyers minds but savings through energy efficiency, either active or passive, certainly is. Having said that, we do have a green builder in our area and that's a nice resource.

Way to go Barbara, recommend a live class if possible, you get so much more out of it than on line.

Larry very well said

Silva, not in the forefront but coming up fast.
