Responsible Materials

Materials

Choosing to build green involves responsibly sourced materials. Here are a few things to keep in mind while exploring your options. 

Is it locally sourced?

Sourcing material as you can from local fromt local resources cuts down on fossil fuels used to move the materials from one location to another. When it comes to lumber, look for sustainably grown local lumber. We are lucky to have a great resource in California for sustainable lumber from Big Creek Lumber. Big Creek Lumber is known for their environmentally and socially responsible harvest practices. 

We also have a great resource for local Mariposa Flagstone, as well as locally batched concrete and other materials. 

What is it made from? How does it affect air quality?

Look for non-toxic materials such as water-based paints, stains and sealers as well as carpets made of natural fibers. This will greatly increase the air quality of your home.

Recycled Materials

More and more products are being made from recycled and reclaimed materials. Many of these new products are not only environmentally responsible, they are durable and they look great!
