Fact: A typical 1,700 square-foot wood-frame house requires the equivalent of one acre of forest timber.2
Why: Behind the scenes, do you know what materials are used to build your house? If you own an Earth Advantage home, you do. Earth Advantage homes are built with materials that help preserve our precious resources, including old growth forests. But it's not about sacrifice - many of these products are cutting edge and can actually improve structural quality, including composite floor joists and engineered lumber.
Fact: The average American house consumes nearly $1,500 per year in utility costs. But usage can be reduced by implementing energy efficient products and construction practices.3

With innovative heating, insulation and landscaping solutions, Earth Advantage homes help increase energy efficiency by at least 15 percent over conventional home construction.* And that can save you a lot of energy over time.
