Building a Green Home: Framing Day
We just love this part! Seeing new homes being built, and thinking about the families that will create memories here is very satisfying. And when the homes are built to our LivingSmart standards, well, that’s something to really feel good about.
See for yourself what’s better about a green home built by Pardee Homes. Superintendent Mike Carrillo walks you through the framing process, explaining the benefits of pre-cut, iLevel engineered lumber.
LivingSmart Homes at Fair Oaks Ranch recently met the new Gold level criteria of the National Green Building Standard, and is the first neighborhood in California to earn the National Green Building Standard Gold Certification. (The NGBS was developed by the National Association of Home Builders Research Center and is intended to be a nationwide green building standard for residential construction.)
Every home in our new LivingSmart® Homes in Santa Clarita’s Fair Oaks Ranch®, is being built to Gold-level criteria of the NGBS, inspected at least twice by an accredited green verifier, and Green Certified by the Research Center.
