Building Green

F&N Homes can build you a modular home in any color.  No matter what color you choose for the exterior of your home, consider making your new custom modular home green – inside and out.  The goal of green building is to protect the environment and conserve energy and natural resources.  F&N Homes can help you build an affordable custom green home that is designed to be energy efficient, reduce water consumption and promote the health and well being of the home owner.  Green construction can incorporate all of the custom design features that make modular building so popular.

Prefabricated construction is green by its very nature, limiting the impact on the environment.  There is minimal disturbance to the building site from stored materials and heavy equipment.  Modular construction produces far less waste.  Pre-built components, such as trusses and pre-hung doors, allow a more efficient use of raw materials.  Many construction materials are sustainable and can be recycled.  Building materials are not exposed to the elements, reducing the likelihood of mold and mildew damage, which results in improved indoor air quality and a healthier home.

Energy efficiency is the hallmark of green construction.  Green building benefits you and the environment.  Modular construction is extremely energy efficient, which not only makes your home eco friendly, but substantially reduces your energy costs.  The increased energy efficiency is a result of the modular building process.  Each module is precision manufactured to exact specifications, resulting in components that fit together perfectly, creating a nearly air tight seal to prevent energy loss.

F&N Homes offers a wide array of products and features to make your new modular home more eco friendly.  We can add individual green options to any home that we build.  Some of these energy-efficient options include:
