Here’s another interesting green building resource: Build It Green, based out of California. This site seems more like a resource for building professionals, but there’s still great information there for the consumer. If you’re planning to build a “green” or Energy Star home for yourself and family it’s best to be as educated as possible before signing on with any contractor.
Their About Us page says the organization started in 2003. They promote clean, healthy, energy, and resource efficient homes in California. Even if you’re not in Cali you can still follow their directory of members to find someone that might work in your area. There’s also a listing of Green Point Rated homes that are occasionally open for tours… or at least a drive-past.
