Green Building is the Efficient and Environmentally friendly way to build a custom Home in Springfield, MO
Custom home builder, Brett Godfrey obtained his Certified Green Professional (CGP) credentials from the National Association of Home Builders in 2008. The responsibility of the Certified Green Professional is to help clients navigate vast amounts of information and evaluate numerous options.
Brett guides his clients through implementation of ideas that are determined to be the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly. Because not all Green practices are appropriate for all climates, terrains and budgets, Brett guides his clients through the options to help make the best decisions for their circumstances when planning a custom home in southwest Missouri.
Brett also makes it a priority to keep up with the current State and Federal tax credits as well as rebates that can help offset some of the "Green Building" expenses. Planning your next custom home is important, as some requirements must be met at specific points in the construction process. If everything is not implemented and documented appropriately, eligibility for these credits and rebates may be lost.
