STEIGERWALD-DOUGHERTY

 GOING GREEN

During the last 25 years we have been actively engaged in custom home building in the North County area. As the green building movement has taken hold we have been pleased to discover that many of our construction techniques were already considered “green”. As a high quality home builder we have long been aware of such things as site selection and orientation, efficient water heating and circulation systems, and properly weatherized and ventilated homes to mention a few.

Over the past few years, however, we have learned a lot more and are incorporating “green” materials and systems in many of our homes. For those clients who choose us as their builder we are happy to say we are currently underway on one of the first “custom green homes” in the San Diego area. We also now have a LEED AP (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Accredited Professional) on staff which helps facilitate the LEED certification process for our custom home clients.

We at Steigerwald-Dougherty will help you obtain the rewards of constructing a durable/sustainable green home. These benefits include energy cost savings and a more healthy indoor living environment.

There are many degrees of “green” that can be incorporated into any home. We feel that any amount is a step in the right direction for our environment. Fortunately, it is one of those things where “every little bit helps”.

Please enjoy the following snap shots of Steigerwald-Dougherty’s most recent “green” home under construction. We are targeting a “Gold LEED for Homes Certification” for this wonderful custom home.
