Whether you are located in the Tampa Bay area, or any of the counties of Pinellas, Hillsborough or Manatee, homeowners just like you are becoming more attracted to the prospect of renovating or remodeling their homes using green building principles to make them more energy-efficient and less expensive to maintain. What seems to be a fad during the early 1990′s has now become a necessary undertaking that even the US and state government will provide tax breaks to homeowners converting to green homes.

In its most recent incarnation, the buzzword that has gained much popularity and familiarity in the home building and construction industries is the term Green Building. Contrary to what others may reckon, the concept of green building is not entirely new and has been around since the early 1970s after a group of custom home builders and building designers formed an alliance focusing on energy and resources conservation in the building and construction industry.

Since then, the growing global concerns for slowly depleting resources and increasing environmental issues have triggered the world to focus once more on these green building initiatives. The trend continues to build up as more and more homeowners and investors are trying to incorporate green building elements into their projects. Contractors are now becoming Green Custom Home Builders while realtors are slowly changing the way they call themselves to Designated Green Agents.
