Energy Efficiency Part 2: Built Green

March 4, 2020

Since 2005, New Tradition Homes has prided ourselves on being the Northwest’s leader in green building practices. But we don’t just build green — we think green, which means we’re always one step ahead of cutting-edge solutions, making sure that the home you choose to spend your days in provides the benefits of the latest and greatest green features available. 

In our last blog, we discussed how our energy-efficient homes create a happier and healthier life for you and your family. Today, we’re excited to share the second part of our series, where we talk about all things green. From water-conserving faucets to non-toxic countertops, our team places a significant emphasis on the green details of your home, helping you to lower your carbon footprint... and save more money!


Green Home Features

  • Landscape package designed with local climate tolerant plants, making it disease resistant with less maintenance and lower water needs.
  • All water faucets are ENERGY STAR®-approved and water-conserving. (They lower the water bills, too!)
  • Home Ventilation System Heat Recovery Ventilators provide fresh clean air throughout the home at all times — like the lungs of your home!
  • When possible, all lumber waste is sent to a recycler and not a landfill.
  • All laminate countertops used are Greenguard-certified, which means they are environmentally friendly and non-toxic.


ENERGY STAR® and Built Green Washington® third-party tested and certified, our thoughtfully built living spaces reduce greenhouse gases by 3,287 lbs, which is equivalent to the emissions absorbed from planting 39 trees. We’re happy to say that your home isn’t just healthy for your family and your wallet, but healthy for the environment you love as well.

From family movie nights in your great room to relaxing evenings on your back patio, the simple moments of your life are among the happiest — which means your home should always be on the same page as you are. Comfortable, stylish, and filled with modern features, your New Tradition Homes living space is the place to be.

Loving our energy efficient new home blog series? We have one more part headed your way! Stay tuned for part 3, where we’ll talk about the practices we use to ensure optimal efficiency in your home, as well as the innovative smart features that make your everyday life easier (and more fun).

I don't remember the first time I saw a New Tradition home, but it was MANY years ago. During the internet evolution, I have watched New Tradition evolve into a great company. I don't know why, I guess it was my dream to own one I just didn't know it yet. Years later, my husband and I decided it was time to build. After looking at all the builders and communities we stopped into a New Tradition home and he fell in love! (I was already there). 4 months later the floor plan of our dreams came available and we were hooked. 1 year later, we are now in our New Tradition home and I couldn't be happier!
