Smart Green is the intelligent way to design homes. It achieves superior energy efficiency by using state-of-the-art environmentally friendly design practices and renewable materials.
Building energy efficient and green homes is nothing new to us. In 1987, John Hall, Sr. was named an energy efficient builder for the U.S. Department of Energy for building the first passive solar home in Illinois. We’ve used the lessons we learned from that home in each home we build. Each home we build today is built to exceed many popular energy standards, including Energy Star.
At John Hall Custom Homes, we use the best, most cost effective measures to build our homes to much higher “Green” standards than other builders in the Chicago area. For example: using our Smart Green Practices, building a single family custom home on a 1/2 acre lot has nearly no impact on your carbon footprint. According to research completed by the National Association of Home Builders, when one of our homes is built on an acre of land with our energy saving features and complete landscaping, your home’s carbon footprint is reduced so much that it’s nearly non-existent, due to the use of clean-burning furnaces, clean AC units, and the oxygen given off by the typical landscaped yard. It’s just a smarter way to build a home!
