Austin Green Builders

Green Home Builders in Austin Texas, Jenkins Custom Homes, offers green certified custom home building. The certification for green builders in Austin is based on classes completed successfully. These green builder classes were successfully completed by several of the Jenkins team members.

In addition to certification, Jenkins offers a practical approach to green building. While most of the Jenkins’ custom homes have green features and many have green energy star ratings, they all have been built to the aspirations of their client’s wishes in regard to green building. Some clients want more green building in their custom homes, and some just want a cost-effective and energy efficient green built home. In Austin, there are important factors to consider in a green home. A green home builder must be aware, for instance, of the high potential cost of geothermal heating due to the geography of many Austin lots and that propane tankless hot water heaters are the most cost-effective choice among tankless heaters.

Jenkins strives to provide data such as this regarding the many green building choices to clients so that they may choose the options that are right for them. “Included in our Lifestyle Analysis questionnaire, are specifics about the green building options which are important to each client,” says Shan Jenkins of Jenkins Custom Homes. “After all, green living and lifestyle in your custom home go hand-in-hand.”

When you choose Jenkins as your green home builder, you know you’re in good hands. So good, in fact, that Jenkins was named the Custom Builder of the Year by the Texas Association of Builders, twice! The Jenkins Showcase of Homes entry and Parade of Homes entry were also named “Best Custom Home in Texas.” When building a green home, quality and beauty should be considered along with the green certification, and with Jenkins, these are all considered standard features.
