A local NC House Gets ‘1,000th house’ tag by Green Built NC

The Green Built North Carolina has certified an Asheville home as ‘1,000th house’ – the house was constructed by a local contractor.

This state wide programme accredits structures built with environmental friendly raw-materials and process.



This programme was managed by WNC Green Building. The homes were set up by JAG Construction and have the rating of 55 (This is home energy rating) – those houses were properly inspected and examined – 45 per cent well-organized and environmentally competent than some other buildings in comparison.

The 87 Fenner Avenue, which is situated in the close proximity of UNC Ashville, is the house used air-tight construction technique, ventilation, water saving appliances with affordable toxic-finish and oriented with roof.

The building – the 1,000 Green Built has ‘a decreased Carbon Emission’ by 5000 tons yearly – home owner can save around $815 per year as energy consumption bills.

“Green building stayed viable in the slow economy and certified homes retained their value. Having survived the market downturn, we are thrilled to see the program growing again. Homeowners want homes that are built to last, good for the environment, with low utility bills. Green homes are a great investment — with minimal increase in cost up front, they save money for the life of the home,” said Maggie Leslie, director of the WNC Green Building Council.
