Building Green
The process of green building incorporates environmental considerations into every phase of the home building process. That means that during the design, construction, and operation of a home, energy and water efficiency, lot development, resource efficient building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, homeowner maintenance, and the home‘s overall impact on the environment are all taken into account.

CHB Custom Homes first green home with smart home technology built in Thomasville and the South Georgia area. The best custom green homes in Georgia.

Lot design, preparation, and development

Resource-efficient site design and development practices help reduce the environmental impacts and improve the energy performance of new housing

Energy Efficiency

We are proud to offer new homes that have earned the ENERGY STAR® label.ENERGY STAR qualified new homes are substantially more energy-efficient than homes built to the minimum code requirements. Our ENERGY STAR qualified new homes are independently verified by a third-party Home Energy Rater to make sure they meet ENERGY STAR energy efficiency guidelines. These homes are better for the environment and better for you. Learn more about ENERGY STAR qualified new homes at

Water Efficiency

Green homes often conserve water both indoors and out. More efficient water delivery systems indoors and native and drought resistant landscaping choices can help prevent unnecessary waste of valuable water resources.

Operation, Maintenance & Homeowner Education

Improper or inadequate maintenance can defeat the designers and builders best efforts to create a resource efficient home. By providing homeowner’s with information about proper operation and maintenance rules, a builder can help assure that the green home that was so carefully built will also be operated in an environmentally responsible way.

What is Sustainability?

Paraphrased from a United Nations Environmental Program Document…. “Sustainability is, meeting the needs of people today without destroying the resources that will be needed…by persons in the future.

Indoor Environmental Quality

An increase in reported allergies and respiratory ailments and the use of chemicals that can off-gas from building materials have contributed to a heightened awareness of the air we breathe inside our homes.

Global impact

Selection of paints is one issue that falls into the group of global impact. Selecting low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) helps prevent the release of VOC’s from wet paint that form ground-level ozone pollution.

Certified green homes earn their designation through energy and water efficiency, site planning, healthy materials, durability and other green practices. A process of building that should result in more sustainable communities and the reversal of many of the negative impacts of development upon our planet.

Understanding Green Building:

Green building also has tangible economic and public health benefits. These include lower operating costs via reduced energy and water utility bills, and reduced maintenance and replacement costs due to greater durability of materials. The use of non-toxic materials in residential construction is especially important in protecting children from respiratory and other diseases.
In commercial settings, green building results in improved occupant health and comfort (primarily due to indoor air quality measures and delighting) which in turn leads to higher productivity, less absenteeism, and reduced insurance costs and liability risk.

On the hierarchy of human needs, shelter is second only to food. Everyone wants a place to live. One of the best and easiest ways to lessen the impact on the planet of fulfilling that need is to build environmentally-sound structures. Not only can we improve the global environment, building green can improve your local environment. CHB Custom Built Homes Checklist

And it shows, our attention to detail in each of our custom homes makes them stand out and makes them much more practical and comfortable to live in.

The inspiration for our home plans collection came from a growing awareness that new houses were getting bigger and bigger but with little redeeming design merit. The problem is that comfort has almost nothing to do with how big a home is. It is attained rather by tailoring our homes to fit the way we really live, and to scale your home to your proportions and human form.

Our collection of floor plans by the most influential Architects can be tailored with green specification guidelines, to help you to get the green home you want. These guidelines include a description of the energy-efficient skin, high performance and reasonably priced windows and doors, and recommendations for heating and cooling systems.

Our home collection floor plans are high performance energy-efficient walls roofs and floors. Our designs goal is to reaching for zero energy fossil fuel use.

For the first time in housing history, we can honestly say that eco green homes built today are better than the traditional homes of yesteryear. That's because they are of superior energy efficiency. Everyone's responsibility is to help save the planet from global warming and lessen our dependency on foreign oil.

With energy prices skyrocketing, finding ways to cut down on your home's energy usage not only helps the environment, but also makes great economic sense.

No other national home builder matches CHB Eco Custom Home's ENERGY STAR standard features and commitment to energy efficiency and the U.S. Government's ENERGY STAR program. ENERGY STAR was developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy to promote the use of energy-efficient products and practices in the home.
