Please, take a moment out of your busy schedule, read this page and watch the video. You will find many benefits for you and your family when you build with Florida Green Homes.
Our homes are built with modern construction technologies.
Because of these technologies, all the homes that we build are Highly Energy Efficient, Hurricane Resistant, Healthy to Live in, Environmentally Friendly, and Certified Green at the highest levels; Gold or Platinum!
Green Home Savings! This is a major benefit of living in Green Home.
In our brand new average size green home built with modern construction technologies, average monthly savings on energy and water bills, lawn maintenance and homeowners’ insurance is about $300. In addition, let’s not forget that the cost per kilowatt hour to heat, cool and run your homes, cost of water usage and homeowners insurance are increasing every year.
It would be possible to see savings of over $100,000 for a 30 year period.
Healthy Environment inside our Green Homes
Your Family’s Health is Priceless! Our homes are built with modern construction technologies. The components and materials contain no formaldehyde, no chlorofluorocarbons, no asbestos, no fiberglass, or any other toxic materials. We use only Certified Green: Zero VOC Paint, Cabinetry and Carpet. Florida Green Homes virtually eliminate dust, allergens, pollutants, black mold spores and insects inside the house. We bring crisp, fresh outside air in to your home for your health. Returns in every bedroom: that is our standard.
You'll never want to live any place else. I suffer from allergies due to pollen, and for the first time in many years, my allergies don't bother me when I am at home. If the pollen is high, I am sneezing like a madman, but then I go home, and it's like there is not a speck of pollen in the air. You'll never want to live any place else. Florida Green Homes are beautiful, affordable fortresses... Literally.

Homes we build are some of the safest structures in the world.
Following the tragedy in New Orleans, where Hurricane Katrina devastated so many lives, the Company’s concern was to create a product that would not only be safe for homeowners, but also be affordable.
Homes built by Florida Green Homes, LLC are Hurricane and Tornado resistant, Fire retardant. Our exterior walls, ICF construction, have been engineered to withstand hurricane winds up to 200 mph.
Exterior walls are built with horizontal and vertical steel reinforcement rebar and solid poured concrete. FEMA recommends this method of construction for it’s ability to resist wind and water forces, but also for it’s ability to stop flying debris. It is simply the best!
In the picture below you can see a whole area that was swept away by a 20 ft. storm surge during hurricane Katrina.
Only one home was left standing. This is how we build our homes.
Please, think about it.
We don't just say "Green," we certify it.

Green Home Building Booming
According to the National Association of Realtors and the National Home Builders Association 70% of homebuyers said they were more inclined to buy a Green home rather than a traditionally built home.The confluence of a stagnant housing market and consumer desire to save money is creating a green home building boom that could be worth up to $114 billion by 2016, according to a latest SmartMarket Report on Green Homes and Remodeling, NAHB.

The first thing I noticed is how quiet it is. Virtually no outside noise. The surprises kept coming. Imagine opening your electric bill for the very first time. Scary, at least for me. I thought surely there must be some kind of mistake. It had been very cold for about 12 days during the winter. I ran the heat, although it never seemed to be running long. I opened my bill and to my amazement it was only $36.00 for the month I fully endorse Florida Green Homes. Isn't it time you build a Florida Green Home?Amanda Mazzie, Miss American Renaissance,2009
