Why EarthCraft?


A home or building with EarthCraft certification is one that has been designed to suit the unique climate conditions of the Southeast. EarthCraft projects are built for energy-, water- and resource-efficiency, durability, and superior indoor air quality – all key factors in achieving a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle.

EarthCraft projects have a number of benefits, including:

  • Lower utility costs
  • Enhanced indoor air quality
  • Increased comfort
  • Reduced home maintenance requirements

For builders, this means:

  • Reduced callback volume
  • Potential construction cost savings
  • An effective means to differentiate their projects from those that are conventionally built

Real estate professionals who sell EarthCraft benefit too! EarthCraft offers a unique and memorable product that appeals to a discerning, health- and cost-conscious buyer. On average, EarthCraft certified projects sell for a higher percentage of their list price and stay on the market for shorter than conventionally built homes. Owners consistently agree that EarthCraft provides a singular and excellent living experience.
