Building Green

Once upon a blueprint, many thought building green was a waste of time, money and effort. Now, an increasing number of people realize that sustainable design is a modern necessity.

So exactly how does the TightLines approach result in incredibly low energy bills, cleaner interior air to breathe and improved construction techniques? In addition to applying plenty of common sense to our designs, our team works hard to keep current on green technology advancements and best practices.  TightLines homes are not only spacious, offering huge livability and appealing aesthetics, but they are designed to have a reduced impact on the environment.  We wouldn't have it any other way - it's just the right thing to do.
