Green Home Building
For Your Family, For Our Environment. Green Building is the standard for Castle Homes.
The residential sector accounts for 22% of total energy consumed nationwide, according to the US Department of Energy. That’s why it matters that all Castle homes are constructed to minimize energy consumption and keep the world as green as possible.
We build responsibly with respect to the environment by:
From lot preparation and building processes to interior planning and materials selection, we think ‘green’ at every turn. With this level of dedication and planning, every Castle contributes to the creation of more sustainable neighborhoods by minimizing environmental impact.
“Our goal is to reduce environmental impact through design and construction by utilizing durable products, energy and water efficiencies with indoor air quality systems.” – Alan Looney, Founder and President of Castle Homes
We also prioritize HEALTHIER, EVERYDAY LIVING for Castle homeowners. Castle homes are well-planned and designed to maximize every square foot of space. Our credentialed, experienced team, led by Founder/President Alan Looney, considers everything from air and water quality to appliance, window and finish selection. Superior systems and materials lead to better quality of living for families whose homes are their Castles.
We pursue third-party certification of Castle homes, to ensure we meet industry-wide standards and provide proof to homeowners that their Castles will offer energy efficiencies and reduced water consumption on a daily basis.
Another positive outcome of this third-party certified green building standard? Castle Homes hold excellent RESALE value. The energy efficiencies, advanced engineering and quality of materials motivate buyers because of their short and long-term benefits. From lower utility bills and better indoor air quality to minimized pollution and overall environmental friendliness, it’s the value of Castle Homes sustains and endures.

Long-Term Benefits of Green Building:
Home Design And Resource Efficiency
Design floor plan to ensure efficient living areas that maximize space. (Designing a 4,000 square foot home to perform like a 4,500 square foot home.)
Expert home design reduces material use. Also, use of salvage materials when appropriate – newel posts, flooring, light fixtures, beams, brick.
