"Having beautiful product that is also incredibly energy efficient means it costs less to own and we mitigate more greenhouse gas emissions."
We’re proud to share that we were recently featured in the Summer 2015 issue of Modern Builder + Design magazine! Our own Aaron Fairchild outlined Green Canopy’s mission, process, and motivations in the eight page spread. He speaks to the importance of recognizing the impact our builds are making on both the environment, and on the community around us.
“With educational programs, green building and renovation techniques, and unparalleled community engagement, Green Canopy is as much a movement as it is a business.
Green Canopy Homes’ earth-friendly ethos is not limited to an end product: homes, renovations- and now custom- properties that sell for up to $1.5 million and meet rigorous standards for energy efficiency, quality and beauty.
The company goes beyond its relationship with individual homebuyers to try to affect change in the market overall- through innovative education channels and partnerships.
‘We have shifted this local market toward greater awareness of the benefits of resource efficiency and certified green product at the time homes are bought and sold,’ President Aaron Fairchild says.” (p. 63)
The article continues on to highlight Aaron’s goals and specific processes for accomplishing the Green Canopy mission. He even mentions the Empower Happy Hours!
We are also so thankful for Ballard Reuse, Northwest Electric & Solar, and Performance Insulation for being a part of this spread with us.
