Green Building

Green building is fundamentally about living in a cleaner environment and saving money on the costs of utilities and general up-keep. Green building practices aim to reduce the environmental impact of a home while also allowing the homeowner to live comfortably. It is focused on resource-efficiency throughout the building life cycle.

River Rock Builders considers every detail to ensure energy efficiency, including creating site specific blue-print plans, transportation of materials, and utilizing the most budget conscious green products.
