Green, Beautiful, AND Affordable

But several Boise-based organizations have teamed up to prove the common wisdom is wrong--and to set up a pilot project to provide Idahoans with beautiful, affordable, eco-friendly homes within the city limits.
The Healthy House Institute (HHI), which has been helping Americans all over the country green their housing for over 20 years, has teamed up with long-time area homebuilder Earthcraft Construction, which has 30 years of experience building sustainable, energy-efficient homes.
The two assembled a wider consortium including consulting with the SCGH LLC (formerly "Sierra Club Green Home") program as well as experts in solar and renewable energy, LEED certification, landscape architecture, financing and realty services, and other disciplines--to provide custom-built, affordable, green homes in Boise.
"We're delighted to work with Earthcraft, because they've turned design-build green homebuilding into an art form, and yet kept it affordable for our Boise neighbors," Rathey noted.
Earthcraft President Mark L. Hixson added, "Partnering with HHI, with its vast knowledge base and national reputation, allows us to build even greener and healthier homes than in the past."
