LEED Certification for Your Post and Beam Home

We previously discussed how Timberpeg homes have several ecologically friendly features. If building a truly green home is important to you, then you may want to consider pursuing a LEED certification for your post and beam house. The US Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is possibly the premier verification system for green homes. A LEED certified building is already very environmentally friendly, and the higher levels of Silver, Gold or Platinum certification denote even greater levels of sustainability. Here are some details to consider if you might want to pursue a LEED certification, as well as ways in which a Timberpeg home can help you meet this goal. 

Celebrate Earth Day

As you probably know, Earth Day is this weekend on Sunday the 22nd.  Earth Day is a relatively new phenomenon, dating back to 1970.  Through the years it has meant different things to different people, and each year it makes us ponder our role in promoting a sustainable and ecologically-friendly method of building.
